EC: Honeywell DynAMo Alarm Suite

Software — Diagnostics: DynAMo Alarm Suite is advanced alarm management software that increases operator effectiveness by reducing the overall number of alarms in industrial plants and helping operators focus and respond to those that are the most critical. This is a Control Engineering 2015 Engineers’ Choice award winner.

Honeywell DynAMo Alarm SuiteHoneywell's DynAMo Alarm Suite is advanced software that reduces the overall number of alarms while helping operators focus and respond to those that are most critical. This is important because according to the Abnormal Situation Management Consortium, ineffective management of nuisance alarms can lead to incidents that cost the process industry billions of dollars, and can increase fatigue and stress for operators who must constantly make instant decisions on how to respond when an alarm sounds. This introduces an increased risk to not only process efficiency, but also overall safety.

DynAMo Alarm Suite addresses and combats this ineffective management by leveraging more than 20 years of alarm management experience in the process industries to help users reduce overall alarm count by as much as 80%, identify maintenance issues and increase visibility of critical alarms that require urgent attention. DynAMo Alarm Suite's critical features include:

 

  • A customizable, role-based dashboard that enables operators, engineers and managers to view the health of their alarm systems at a glance.
  • Compatibility with many mobile devices, enabling personnel to view alarm metrics at any time, from almost any location for more frequent monitoring and faster corrective action, which helps alleviate a major fatigue factor of operators.
  • Integration capabilities with Honeywell's industry-leading Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS), as well as any other control system.

Overall, DynAMo Alarm Suite is an effective tool for optimizing alarm management programs to prevent alarm floods and ‘chatter,’ and reduce operator stress, adding a layer of protection to minimize unplanned outages, safety incidents and environmental releases.

To date, Honeywell has deployed DynAMo Alarm Suite at more than 100 facilities around the world, increasing the safety and productivity of those operations.
