CUSTOMIZED TRAINING

Lin & Associates provided instructor-led classroom style training for electrical and instrumentation personnel. The customized training covered topics like Experion architecture, control concepts, field assemblies, PMIO & IO link, instrument ranges, graphics, alarms, and more. We provided multiple training classes that were attended by upwards of 100 people.


CRUDE CONSOLE ALARM MANAGEMENT

Lin & Associates completed a crude console alarm management project that consisted of the rationalization, implementation with Honeywell’s Experion® alarm management software suite, graphic modification, shape updates, general alarm philosophy updates, and training for operation on the new tools and philosophies. We collected and analyzed the entire unit database providing a list of standing alarms and worst actors and any anomalies or exceptions with the alarm philosophy with regards to current configurations. Lin & Associates in house alarm management tools and system testing availability ensured that the Alarm Rationalization’s QA/QC was maximized for the operations group and the engineering group.


ISOCRACKER FSC SIS PROJECT

Lin & Associates provided a safety instrumented systems (SIS) solution for an Isocracker FSC unit. We developed the Honeywell Safety Manager Module (SMM) point database. We also provided a SIS/Start-Up sub-picture library and built approximately 50 GUS graphics including interlock and valve testing graphics. Lin & Associates provided support for implementation and testing of the graphics and on-site start-up assistance.


ADVANCED CONTROLS CLEAN-UP

Lin & Associates’ purpose for this project was to provide identification, documentation and implementation details concerning the conversion of all advanced regulatory controls and DCS-based calculations to Honeywell Experion® PKS. Applications that are no longer useful will be identified for removal. A site trip was made to collect the database from 2 LCN systems including configuration files from History Modules (HM), points and parameters from the AMs, UCNs, and HIWAYs, LCN name outputs, CL blocks, sequence programs, all displays from GUS and Native Windows, information files from APP nodes, and PHD point list. We delivered detailed documentation contain the information noted from the review and the path forward, identification of features in graphics and programs that are not easily translated into Experion, and identification of interdependencies between “units” to expose problems that may arise during a phased transition to Experion.


NATIVE WINDOW TO EXPERION CONVERSION

Lin & Associates converted approximately 120 Honeywell Native Window and 15 Bailey control graphics to Experion® R210 HMIWeb. We developed overview displays, process displays, and safety interlock displays using the client provided shape library and styles. We were also given the challenge of providing a large screen display that the client could get operations to view as a useful tool to identify the unit’s health. We implemented the Lin & Associates Quantitative Dashboard Overview display for the unit with overwhelming approval.


PI PROCESSBOOK GRAPHIC UPGRADE

Lin & Associates provided graphic standard development and implementation of standards for OSIsoft ProcessBook displays. We worked along side the client to create a company wide standard and updating process. The client delivered approximately 750 displays that Lin & Associates updated in our office and delivered back meeting each unit deliverable.
