  2. Alarm Management

    Alarm Management

    Eliminate alarm floods and meet ISA 18.2 metrics with dynamic alarm management.

    Emerson’s Alarm Management Services focuses on the complete Alarm Management Lifecycle. From alarm philosophy through alarm rationalization and implementation, we can deliver an alarm system that meets ISA 18.2 and IEC 62682 requirements and recommendations.

    ?

    • Alarm Philosophy Services – Required documented process that defines the objective of the alarm system and governs the work process and standards for alarming.
    • Alarm Assessments – Analyze alarm data using DeltaV Analyze or EventKPI and identify areas of improvement for the customer.
    • Alarm Rationalization – Design an alarm system by reviewing every point in the customer’s system.
      • Design Preparation – Review Alarm Management database which provides the basis from which the dynamic alarm systems will be built.
      • Development – Update the current alarm configuration by creating system boundaries and case logic for each system.
      • Implementation – Conduct the on-site Alarm Management system configuration.
      • Operator Training – Provide basic training covering Alarm Management fundamentals, use of software, and overview of configuration.

    Alarm Management Dynamic Pre-Rationalization

    ?

    Our customers are rewarded with an effective full Dynamic Pre-Rationalization? for consistent alarm management. Start off with the proper ground work of an efficient process. Every project begins with a review or development of an Alarm Management Philosophy Document and continues with an up-front review of the database, and continues with systems, boundaries and case logic.

    Using the Dynamic Pre-Rationalization process, we will fully and dynamically rationalize each point for results that meet ISA 18.2 metrics while saving the customer hours and hours of rationalization time.

    We are sensitive to the limited availability of process engineering personnel in many plants. We have developed a process to speed the rationalization process to about three (3) times typical rationalization rates. This optional process allows our experienced process engineers to go through the rationalization process, rationalizing all alarms in our office. Our engineers will then deliver preliminary results and review them with plant operations and process engineers. Using the Dynamic Pre-Rationalization approach, your Management of Change (MOC) paperwork can be ready to go by the end of the rationalization review meetings. This process reduces the time requirement for plant personnel by about 60% over standard rationalization meetings.

    Eliminate Alarm Floods

    Distributed Control Systems have contributed to industry’s alarm management problems, so much so that the resulting information overload, aka “alarm floods”, has often been cited by the U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) and others as a significant cause of process incidents. Trying to handle and prevent these alarm floods from occurring on your own is difficult, even with a “map” like ISA 18.2.

    ?

    What is an alarm flood?

    ?

    ISA?18.2 defines an alarm flood as a condition during which alarm rate is greater than the operator can effectively manage (i.e. more than 10 alarms per 10 minutes).

    Overall, the percentage of time any alarm system should be in a flood condition should be less than ~1%.

    ?

    When do alarm floods occur??

    ?

    When first starting an Alarm Management initiative, many facilities are running in what can be considered a “flood” condition at all times, i.e. the normal (or steady state) rate of alarms that are presented to the operator in the control room exceed 10 alarms in 10 minutes. During times of upset, the alarm rates exceed even flood conditions, rendering the alarm system useless.

    ?

    Why is it important to eliminate alarm floods?

    ?

    The biggest danger associated with alarm floods is the possibility of missing a critical alarm. The likelihood of missing important alarms is increased with the number of alarms occurring in the flood. When tens or hundreds of alarms are occurring in rapid succession, the operator may not even see a particular alarm before it scrolls off his alarm summary display. At times like this, the operator tends to ignore the alarm summary as it becomes more of a hindrance than a helpful tool.

    Boundary Management

    Collecting and actively verifying that process boundaries are known, documented and maintained by process controls and safe guards. Good boundary management is based on solid engineering principles. This information should be available to all boundary owners, such as Engineering (Process, Controls and Mechanical), Operations, Environmental, etc. and remain connected to controls, alarm documents and people. Boundary Management gives you a controlled and managed approach while providing consistency (required by PSM 29 CFR 1910), efficiency, information retrieval and preservation of knowledge.

    ?

    What is a Boundary?

    ?

    In its simplest form, a process boundary is a limit value. If a process is operated beyond its boundaries, negative consequences can occur. Negative consequences can be inefficient operation, loss of containment, or anything in between. Note that there is a difference between a boundary and an alarm. Not all boundaries will have alarms associated with them. However, all process alarms, and some system alarms as well, can and should be associated with at least one boundary. Some alarms can be associated with multiple boundaries.

    ?

    • Safe operating limits
    • Operating procedures / help guides
    • Interlock and SIS settings
    • Alarm settings
    • Instrument ranges / re-ranging if needed?

    ?

    You can maintain boundary information in AgileOps MCSD.
