Power plants built 20 years ago weren't optimized to achieve the operational goals of today and physics and financial challenges of the near-future. So, how can we prepare?

In today’s operating environment, workers are increasingly on the go, and need robust alarm rationalization software that provides the right interface. GE’s ActivePoint* HMI is that modern interface for plant controls.

Our ActivePoint* Alarm Rationalization software helps rationalize and categorize alarms so operators get a simplified but complete picture of all areas of their plant—enabling quick identification and response to what matters.
We’ve performed this upgrade for more than 100 units and customers around the world; and every single one of our new gas turbines are shipped with ActivePoint* HMI alarm rationalization software.
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:
By determining alarm priority, alarm rationalization tools can improve operator awareness and lead to simplified alarm handling, potentially reducing actionable alarms by as much as 80%. This easy-to-use interface puts you back in control.
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.
With the new alarm management strategy, users can easily access the details of the alarms presented in a screen via clicking the alarm icons. The operator can use this information to determine possible causes and next steps.
