PAS (www.pas.com), a supplier of software products and consulting services for the process industries, has sold its Advanced Control & Optimization (APC&O) business to Honeywell International (www.honeywell.com). The transaction includes linear and non-linear controls and optimization technologies, as well as all related customer contracts and personnel.

By integrating key PAS APC&O technologies with Honeywell’s Profit Suite advanced process control and UniSim simulation solutions, Honeywell expects to offer the following benefits to its customers:

• Improved polymer production control and optimization that can result in production increases of up to 5% and up to 30% reduction in polymer grade transition times through incorporation of PAS’ field-proven Polymers NLC* and Polymer Dynamic Modeling System (PDMS) technologies into the UniSim system.
• Improved high-level optimization benefits such as increased production rates, reduced energy consumption, and improved product quality using PAS’ open-equation based NOVA Optimization System within Honeywell’s ProfitMax Real-Time Optimization System.
• Superior control and optimization benefits through incorporation of the STAR and Galaxy control technologies within Profit Suite. 



As part of the deal, Honeywell acquires PAS’ Advanced Process Control and Optimization employees and will continue to serve the division’s customers.
