Honeywell Process Solutions LEAP project services

Thursday, 12 June, 2014 | Supplied by: Honeywell Process Solutions

Honeywell Process Solutions has launched its LEAP project services (Lean Automation of Automation Projects) to help manufacturers in the processing industries get their plants up and running faster and at lower cost.

LEAP combines Honeywell Process Solutions proprietary hardware and software, virtualisation and cloud engineering to give users greater scheduling flexibility while reducing risk and total automation costs by up to 30%. Honeywell claims that multiple industries can benefit from an estimated 80% reduction in costs related from unnecessary rework, and that these features can also help reduce avoidable schedule delays by up to 90%.

According to Honeywell, LEAP represents a major departure from the way plants are typically designed and built by using parallel workflows to keep automation systems off critical implementation paths. Traditionally, sequential workflows call for the automation and controls to be implemented during a specified time frame before the rest of the plant can be completed. This approach poses challenges such as managing changes, which can affect all subsequent steps of the implementation and threaten project schedules and budgets.

LEAP creates separate streams of work for the physical and functional aspects of project design. This approach allows project engineering to take place from anywhere in the world and removes workflow dependencies to allow core project tasks to start much earlier in the process. It also dramatically minimises the cost and volume of rework typically associated with automation projects.
