Asset Manager forms the cornerstone of this offering.

It also enables users from all levels of plant operations to collaborate effectively in order to determine how to address abnormal equipment condition and plan maintenance while assuring production dependability.
"In today's industrial process industry, where plant management is regularly faced with shrinking maintenance and operations budgets, customers want assets to be more reliable and efficient without compromising safety or increasing their risk," said Ron Stallworth, global marketing leader, Honeywell Process Solutions. "Thanks to the close relationships we've developed with our customers through our consultative selling model, we are better able to understand their needs, which means we can offer them the best portfolio of solutions possible to help them overcome any challenges they currently face."
HPS' combination of the world's leading offerings for process technology, connectivity and automation, provides customers with a complete end-to-end reliability and asset management solution from a single vendor. In addition, Honeywell's OneWireless network technology, Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) and Manufacturing Execution System (MES) solutions allow interoperability between Honeywell and third party products, significantly reducing customer risk.
Asset Manager R400 adds to Honeywell's current set of Reliability and Asset Management offerings, which include comprehensive consulting services to ensure the right solution is selected and properly implemented; industry specific applications like Well Performance Monitor for intelligent oil well surveillance and Mobile Equipment Monitor for heavy equipment health and performance monitoring; process specific applications such as OM Pro for best in class practices for control room and field operators and Corrosion Modeling for active corrosion protection; smart field instruments applications such as Field Device Manager, available either as a stand-alone application or fully integrated with Honeywell's Experion® Process Knowledge System (PKS) to manage field devices; applications for a better return on assets - for example, Field Advisor for field operator driven reliability and Downtime Reporter for better analysis of asset downtime; and applications such as IBM Maximo for enterprise-wide asset management.
