Honeywell Forge Inspection Rounds is a mobile, cloud-based software solution for plant supervisors and field technicians, designed to replace manual processes.

Jason Merszei, vice president and general manager of Honeywell Connected Enterprise, Workers, said it can eliminate paperwork and more error-prone practices.

Technicians inspecting equipment in the field can access the software on a mobile device to review and input data. In addition, supervisors can create, schedule, maintain and analyse their operators' rounds. This allows facility managers to locate operators in the field, validate who is performing a specific task and determine whether that task has been completed properly.

Honeywell Forge Inspection Rounds is hardware-agnostic and works on tablets, smartphones, wearable devices, laptops or rugged mobile computers.

The software is part of the technology company's new product category for "enterprise performance management for operations technology".
