Stay organized, stay running

Proper categorization of alarms can help operators determine whether their attention is required or if an alarm has the potential to cause process impact. Examples of process impact can include:

  • Loss of redundancy
  • Loss of efficiency
  • Loss of plant output
  • Impending shutdown
  • Damage to equipment
  • Operation outside of regulatory compliance

Improved power plant productivity

Role-based alarm management software and parent/child alarm grouping improves O&M staff productivity and reduces response time to critical issues in your power plant. And with better diagnostic capabilities come opportunities for education and a learning environment for the operator and plant staff.
