Enhanced Alarm Management
A properly design alarm management system will minimize production losses, safety incidents and environmental excursions. To do this effectively, the alarms need to be designed for the process and managed for continuous improvement. It is important to evaluate the alarms based on process upsets and verify the functionality of the alarms as they relate to the operation. It is the operator’s job to react to the alarm but the alarms need to be monitored and managed.
One of the main reasons that alarm management programs fail is a lack of appropriate software to regularly measure the health of the alarm system. Using software to monitor alarm system health and resolve issues as they arise help to ensures that compliance is maintained, while also minimizing downtime, equipment damage and production losses.
