The results will be documented in the Alarm Benchmark report and final presentation. The goal of the ABB Alarm Benchmark is to produce a document that can be used as a benchmark, aid and technical database to capture the work of the Benchmark in a logical format.
The Event Analyzer tool can generate a report template with all the KPIs.
The Executive Report highlights current best practices and summarizes EEMUA 191 benchmark findings.
The executive report displays a rating (Good, Fair, Caution, Problem) for each of the assessment items for both alarm system performance indices and alarm system management. The report also includes a summary of the findings divided into areas that ABB can provide support.
This report is the backbone to all the findings and recommendations reported in the Executive report. ABB takes great effort to ensure that all findings and indications are drawn from actual data rather than personal bias. The technical report consists of graphs, tables, and “interpretations”. This report is an excellent reference for future improvements and can act as a performance benchmark for current operating conditions.
The Technical Report includes alarm statistics of the collected data with comparisons to EEMUA 191 guidelines. The report includes an analysis of the alarm rates, frequency, priorities, and operator response times. The report also compares the current management of the alarm system relative to best practices.
The final presentation contains a summary of findings, a description of the methodology used for the data collection and analysis, and a list of recommendations.
