KPPC will use Honeywell Connected Plant's Process Reliability Advisor for ongoing monitoring, early event detection, and mitigation of performance issues before they aggravate. The company also will use Process Optimization Advisor, which continuously monitors streaming plant data and applies Honeywell UOP process models to determine the most economical mode of operations. Both services use big-data analytics and machine learning to improve plant operation.
Part of Connected Plant, Process Reliability Advisor leverages Honeywell UOP process models and fault models configured to each operation, finding problems that hamper production, and preventing unplanned shutdowns that can deprive plant operators millions of dollars per year in lost productivity.
Process Optimization Advisor provides recommendations based on plant-specific information, with actual operating constraints and economic information, providing recommendations that can significantly improve plant profitability.
