Alarm management: New platform update includes ISA recommendations

11/07/2007


PAS has announced the release of PlantState Suite version 6.0, which the company claims is the world’s leading solution for critical condition management in the process manufacturing industries. The new release continues integration of alarm and control performance management with new features and enhancements, and reportedly is the only commercially available product that meets the recommendations outlined in ISA’s text, “Alarm Management: Seven Effective Methods for Optimum Performance.”

Eddie Habibi, CEO of PAS and co-author of the ISA text says, “The latest version of PlantState Suite offers customers a complete and step-wise approach to meeting ever more stringent industry standards for alarm management—from simple benchmarking on any system to comprehensive real-time, state-based alarm management solutions that retain design philosophies and prevent the degradation of implemented systems.”

With version 6.0, PAS promises that operators have a complete and seamless view of alarm shelving, alarm audit and enforcement, alarm viewer, and state-based alarm management tools, directly on the control system for integration with established workflow processes, significantly enhancing productivity and plant reliability.

PlantState Suite, provides the full range of critical condition management functions, including alarm analysis, documentation and rationalization, real-time alarm management, performance metrics management, control loop performance assessment and scheduled reporting.
