Honeywell and Flowserve will collaborate to provide Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions to help users make their operations safer, more efficient and more reliable.

The collaboration will be part of the Honeywell INspire program, Honeywell’s joint customer development program for its IIoT ecosystem.

“The key to an effective IIoT ecosystem is to have three things,” said Andrew Hird, vice president and general manager of Honeywell Process Solutions’ Digital Transformation business. “First, you need to have secure access to the data being collected; secondly the capability to analyze that data; and finally, you need domain knowledge to understand how to deploy information to benefit the operation.”

“We see this collaboration between Honeywell and Flowserve as beneficial to continuously improving how we serve our customers with the latest technology advanced software and analytics, and reliable services capabilities,” said Eric van Gemeren, vice president, research & development, Flowserve.

The goal, Hird said, is a simple-to-use infrastructure that gives customers secure methods to capture and aggregate data, so that it can end up leveraged by using analytics and applying a range of domain knowledge from a vast ecosystem of equipment vendors and process licensors.

With a larger, consolidated data set, manufacturers can apply higher analytics for more detailed insights, scale the data as needed to meet the varied needs of single-site or enterprise-wide operations, and leverage a wider pool of data experts for monitoring and analysis.
