A number of international speakers from the Honeywell stable presented papers. Jean-Marie Alliet, director: Sales Support: Europe, Middle East and Africa based in Brussels, provided an update on Honeywell Process Solutions' platforms and advanced solutions including Experion Process Knowledge, TPS and Uniformance. Alliet commented "In the USA $20 billion downtime plant losses are attributed to human error and one of the cornerstones of the Honeywell technology is its ability to supply advance notification of equipment deterioration to assigned operators thereby enabling customers to conduct preventative maintenance and protection exercises which will reduce downtime. The key focus of Honeywell technologies is safety, reliability and efficiencies."

Paulo Da Silva, Honeywell SA regional sales leader - Field Solutions announced the forthcoming launch of Smart Plus, a wireless technology starter kit aimed specifically at those plant managers who are unsure of the benfits of wireless technological solutions on site. Smart Plus is designed to run in tandem with existing processes with an added advantage that wireless data is always available. Da Silva said: "One would expect to receive a starter kit with the purchase of a new cellphone - now Honeywell is offering a starter kit to introduce the benefits of wireless technology in the same way to plant operators - a first on the market!"

Other topics that were presented incuded: securing of assets; physical and IT convergence; operational excellence, resource development and customer support and knowledge management.
