A Better Way to Plant-Wide Optimization
Honeywell Plant-Wide Optimizer, part of the Honeywell Forge APC offering, is an optimisation layer which is designed to sit above multiple APC or optimiser applications.
The user can select individual variables which are connected between the Plant-Wide Optimizer and APC/optimisation layers. This gives considerable flexibility to specify only the critical, enterprise-wide variables, without requiring detailed modeling of lower level constraints and relationships.
Honeywell Plant-Wide Optimizer performs a comprehensive check of potential constraints in the lower level controller (ie. ensures feasibility of any optimiser generated solution). Additionally, Honeywell Plant-Wide Optimizer utilises standard Forge APC components and connectivity.
