Honeywell has announced the global launch of Intuition Executive, which it characterizes as the flagship product of its new Intuition software portfolio. The company says Intuition Executive delivers enterprise-wide information management, decision support, and collaboration tools to help companies achieve operational excellence.

Honeywell announces global launch of its new Intuition Executive solution that connects people, process, and technology for more intelligent operations.

According to Honeywell, companies in process industries often use dozens of applications and hundreds of spreadsheets to manage complex production operations, monitor processes, and make operating decisions. These systems are usually either completely isolated or are connected with complex, custom-designed interfaces that make it difficult to use the data effectively and maintain data integrity.

With its sophisticated data processing and analytical capabilities, Intuition Executive solves this critical challenge. The software anticipates problems and identifies opportunities. Its collaboration tools highlight and capture expert knowledge, share information, and help users to make more agile decisions and take action in order to drive intelligent operations and solve key challenges. For companies in process industries this results in increased efficiency and the ability to manage and respond to volatile energy costs, complex regulatory changes, and real-world safety challenges.

“Data integration and visualization is a must have for our customers today,” said Ian Brown, vice president and general manager, Advanced Solutions, Honeywell Process Solutions. “The ability to see, understand, and act on the relationships within critical data is key to creating competitive advantage, and this can only be achieved when all applications and underlying data are amalgamated. Once you do this, you can identify and take advantage of opportunities earlier, mitigate potentially damaging plant events, and make confident business decisions.”

Intuition Executive is developed on and extends the functionality of Microsoft technologies such as SharePoint 2010, SQL Server, and StreamInsight to meet the requirements of industrial operations.

“Monitoring and analyzing data in motion leads to earlier event detection and faster decision making. Combining business intelligence and analytics tools with existing workflows empowers organizations with the ability to take immediate action and stay ahead in today’s highly competitive industrial marketplace,” said Caglayan Arkan, general manager, worldwide manufacturing and resources sector, Microsoft. “Combined with Microsoft technologies, Intuition Executive is positioned to take advantage of computing power and complex event processing technology to analyze large data streams.”

Intuition Executive is part of the growing family of Intuition solutions that solve key industry needs such as operations monitoring, alarm management, asset management, remote operation centers, and business process optimization. Powered by Matrikon, Intuition Executive is vendor neutral and will connect to any control system or underlying data source.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
