Honeywell announced the addition of operator advisor to its Experion Highly Augmented Lookahead Operations (HALO) suite. This powerful software solution enables plant owners to objectively measure gaps and drive operator effectiveness to the next level.

This market-first solution presents users – including oil and gas, chemical, refining and petrochemical organizations – with a consolidated scorecard of enterprise automation utilization and recommended steps to address performance-related gaps.

Honeywell's solution uses machine learning-powered analytics, a type of artificial intelligence, to gather insights from enterprise data sources such as distributed control systems and funnel those insights into dashboards. These dashboards can provide operations managers and supervisors with a clear and complete view of operator performance and improvement opportunities.

By understanding how operator actions, inactions and workload levels contribute to optimal production, organizations can develop targeted training programs, make strides toward autonomous operations and build process resilience – all of which can help them better compete in the digital age.

"According to the Abnormal Situation Management Consortium, 40% to 70% of industrial accidents are linked to human error," said Pramesh Maheshwari, Vice President and GM, Lifecycle Solutions and Services, Honeywell Process Solutions. "This underscores the importance of deploying an enterprise-wide competency program that empowers organizations and workers through use of advanced technologies like machine learning to improve plant performance, uptime, reliability and safety."

As part of Honeywell's Workforce Excellence portfolio, HALO Operator Advisor is a timely response to several industry trends, including the global desire for post-COVID-19 preparedness and resilience, growing operational complexity, the aging industrial workforce and the urgent need to upskill next-generation recruits.
