Alarm Life Cycle Management
Alarm systems are often the back stop for controlling process safety incidents, but are often not effective due to alarm flooding or inadequate response to alarms.
Effective alarm management requires:
- Prioritization of alarms
- Management of nuisance alarms
- Monitoring alarm system effectiveness
- Correct operator training and response
- Human factors in the control room
ABB has vast experience in helping operators to improve performance in all these areas.
