With today’s control system design and engineering techniques, it is easy to overwhelm a plant operator with alarms. Compliance to Alarm management standards and guidelines like ISA 18.2 and EEMUA 191 is also a key requirement.
Alarm management is a continuous process and the alarm system itself is monitored during plant operation & maintenance for optimal performance. Alarm Adviser is a web-based alarm analysis tool that helps rationalize and identify nuisance alarms in the supervisory alarm system.
Alarm Adviser is an easy to use tool which can be used for new as well as existing systems. The setup and configuration takes only a few minutes, but the analysis reports provide a wealth of information in a user-friendly format. Using this tool, the O&M Engineers can easily identify the nuisance or mis-configured alarms and optimize the alarm system to enhance the operator’s efficiency.
