Mar. 27, 2017 – Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) has announced a new documentation and change management software that will help its customers’ industrial control system integrity, it says.
Replacing paper-based records and spreadsheets with an automated solution, Honeywell Trace promises to help minimize errors due to changes in configurations, improve worker productivity, and simplify automation asset management by providing a single integrated view of system interactions. The company describes Trace as a sophisticated data collection solution that helps expand the visibility of control configurations while automating the documentation of traditional tribal knowledge and actions taken by plant personnel. These improvements, it says, will enable companies to enhance regulatory compliance, reduce configuration errors, spend less time in project planning, and minimize troubleshooting and forensics effort. The new software documents data up to 300 times more frequently than other MOC tools and provides the most powerful search and parameter query functions, it adds.
