Monitoring and Alarming

What makes successful monitoring and alarming strategies?

Ensuring the highest availability and performance of plants requires all processes and equipment to be accurately monitored and exceptions automatically identified. In some more advanced cases, model based monitoring solutions can detect anomalies early to trigger corrective action or maintenance avoiding unplanned shutdowns.

For alarming systems to be effective, it is imperative that operators are only exposed to relevant alarms and do not get flooded with redundant or false alarms. This significantly reduces the risk of unplanned shutdowns resulting from operational upsets.  In more advanced cases, alarming systems may even suggest potential actions and assign them to the correct stakeholders.
