Handbook on alarm management updated

This update will cover the new ANSI/ISA-18.2-2009 and will have significant regulatory impact on the processing industries.

09/13/2010


The second edition of The Alarm Management Handbook, now available from PAS, contains information on the new ANSI/ISA-18.2-2009 Management of Alarm Systems for the Process Industries, which will have significant regulatory impact on the processing industries. Written by  founder and CEO Eddie Habibi and alarm management principal consultant Bill Hollifield, the book contains best-practices for designing and maintaining effective alarm management systems. The company is a provider of software and services for alarm management, automation genome mapping, control loop performance optimization, and high-performance human machine interfaces.

The first edition of the book, published in 2006, has been updated to include information on ANSI/ISA-18.2-2009 Management of Alarm Systems for the Process Industries. This new standard sets forth the work processes for designing, implementing, operating, and maintaining a modern alarm system in a life-cycle format. The 2nd edition includes a summary of the standard’s scope, regulatory impact, requirements, recommendations, and other details. It also includes additional practical information on benchmarking alarm system performance, developing a comprehensive alarm philosophy, solving nuisance alarm problems, performing alarm rationalization, implementing advanced alarm handling techniques, and improving the operator HMI for optimum situation awareness and incident mitigation. An electronic version of the book is available through the Apple iBookstore and Amazon.com.
