Honeywell Launches Intelligent Management Of Change For Industrial Manufacturers
“The requirement for a formalized Management of Change (MOC) process is a major trend in the process automation industry,” said Jon Lippin, vice president-general manager of Lifecycle Solutions & Service for Honeywell Process Solutions. “Improper changes to automation systems can negatively impact a plant’s safety, availability and compliance, and ultimately its business results. iMOC meets this need by collecting relevant data within a process plant, giving it context, and presenting the information to personnel where and when they need it. It is thus a key loss prevention tool for any company seeking to avoid future losses resulting from configuration changes to a process automation system.”
iMOC is the only solution specifically designed for industrial automation. It provides help for supervisory personnel with access to modify critical plant systems, including distributed control systems, safety systems, programmable logic controllers, field instrumentation databases and advanced solutions.
