Companies collaborate on plant initiative for process manufacturing applications
Honeywell (NYSE: HON) and Seeq announced they will collaborate as part of the Honeywell Connected Plant initiative to help process manufacturers leverage data and insights in their operations. This joint development agreement will help customers minimize unplanned shutdowns, maximize output, minimize safety risk, and optimize supply chain strategies. Honeywell’s Connected Plant program is designed to use the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to help improve the safety, efficiency, and reliability of operations across a single plant or several plants across an enterprise.
"This collaboration between Seeq and Honeywell should make it easier for both firms to help their mutual customers gain new and valuable insights from their data," said Janice Abel, principal consultant, ARC Advisory Group. "By providing actionable information, these insights could enable industrial organizations to make better decisions, faster; enabling them to optimize their business and production processes."
