How it works
Intelligent Enterprise-Wide Alarm Improvement
Maintaining Alarm System Health Remains a Challenge
Without adequate maintenance, the health and performance of an alarm system will degrade over time. Many organizations still see high alarm rates and low compliance to their corporate alarm philosophy.
Approaches to Alarm System Improvement are Changing
In response, many in the process industries are centralizing the alarm management process. Global alarm champions require tools to better assess and improve alarm system health across their sites.
Honeywell Forge Alarm Management | Alarm Performance Optimizer
Allow alarm champions to centrally assess the health of every site’s alarm system in one place, identify areas of underperformance, follow guided recommendations to improve alarm system health, and streamline alarm rationalization activities.
Alarm System Analysis, Compliance and KPI Reporting
Alarms Systems and Abnormal Situations
An alarm system is an essential layer of protection, required to help prevent the estimated $10B per year lost to abnormal situations. A typical incident can cost $100k-$1M while major ones can exceed $80M.
Operator Overload is a Key Concern
Standards bodies recommend an operator receive less than 6-8 alarms an hour, but industry averages are more than 4 times this. When needed most, operators ignore alarm systems as they are overwhelmed.
Honeywell Forge Alarm Management | Reporting
Enable quick identification of alarm issues and benchmark your system against industry standards, with priority of what’s required to improve performance. Deployable on-cloud, on-premise, and enterprise scalable.
Alarm Documentation, Enforcement and Operator Guidance
The Impacts of an Unmanaged Alarm System
Without managing alarm configuration, a plant will deviate from design, resulting in more alarms and an increased risk of incidents. The resulting alarm floods and upset conditions can be catastrophic.
Guiding Operators to Avoid Abnormal Situations
An alarm designed to standards includes the causes, consequence of no action and required operator response. In many cases, this is not readily available to an operator when they need it most.
Honeywell Forge Alarm Management | Documentation
Provides alarm system documentation, ongoing enforcement of settings, integrated alarm help with built-in operator assistance and change management reporting capabilities.
Process Safety System Tracking, Recording and Validation
Maintaining Process Safety System Health
Ensuring safety is vital to protect people, environment and assets. Process safety must be continuously ensured as unwanted events occur if shutdown systems and safety elements do not operate as expected.
Novel Approaches to Ensuring Process Safety
The process of validation often relies on planned shutdowns and manual data gathering which is time consuming and error prone. Industry leaders are using software to reduce error and capture financial benefits.
Honeywell Forge Alarm Management | Process Safety Analyzer
Automate the process of validating process safety elements to help continuously ensure process safety and demonstrate activities, reduce the time and effort required to perform both post-shutdown and periodic validation activities.
Honeywell Forge Integrated Solutions
Honeywell Forge Alarm Management integrates directly with Honeywell Forge Operations Management to create a unified solution to drive your organization towards true operational excellence.
Process Safety Analyzer is intimately integrated with Honeywell’s Process Safety Suite (PSS) offering; a comprehensive solution that fully automates the process safety lifecycle.
