Database is an alarm and event historian that consolidates data from multiple data sources and provides the foundation for unified alarm reporting.
Analysis and reporting
Reports on alarm system performance are necessary to optimize and benchmark the plant. The AlarmInsight® applications portfolio supports this in several ways:
Alarm Analysis – web-based analytics and reporting. Manually set filters for predefined reports like alarm flooding, alarm rates, chattering alarms, priority distribution, etc. Exclude chosen alarms from the reports to evaluate their impact on overall KPI’s and to drill down further in order to find candidates for alarm rationalization. Summary reports and KPI’s can be exported to Excel.
KPI-Reports – automatically generate alarm KPI reports on
daily, weekly and monthly basis. Reports can be stored on disk as pdf files or sent via email.
Event Log Viewer – web-based tool for investigating the raw
logs from all alarms and events.
Expert Tool – used by consultants and experts to execute alarm analysis.
