Agidens Alarm management

Alarm management

When monitoring failures or incidents, we often notice that problems are being caused by alarms that are not followed up properly. This is because control room operators and employees in the field are often confronted with an abundance of notifications and alarms. As a result, they lack an overview of the status of the process and the installation, and can therefore not optimally manage the process. Incorrect follow-up of messages and alarms can lead to safety and quality risks. Agidens has developed a method for the optimization of alarm systems based on NEN-EN-IEC 6282 and ISA-18.2.
 

PROBLEM DEFINITION

  • Too many alarms
  • Unclear alarms
  • Not user-friendly
  • No overview
  • No follow-up
  • Security risks
  • OEE risks
  • Quality risks


By applying a well thought out alarm management, all users in f.e. operations, maintenance, QHSE and IT, only receive the information that is relevant to them. The alarm system then fulfills the function for which it is intended: the (early) detection of problems in the process, the installation or the system itself. When these alerts are optimally tailored to both the process and the organization, all users can respond within the desired response time.

Agidens applies alarm management to various control systems within different industries, such as the food, pharmaceutical, (fine) chemical, oil and gas industry.
 

RESULT


By applying a tailor-made alarm philosophy, all alarms are optimally geared to the process and the organization, making it clear to the users what action is required, which in turn makes it easier to follow up on problems. In addition, the philosophy may serve as the basis for future extensions and changes to the installation.

We unburden you with a more efficient, safer and future-proof alarm management system that allows you to focus on the other aspects of your business.


INTEGRATION WITH ATALK

ATALK is a unique and patented (pending) technology that enables critical alarm messages to be sent directly to the responsible operators on site via their walkie talkie. By using the ATALK system, manual actions to transmit these messages are no longer required thus reducing delays and potential human error. 

The system is specially designed for ATEX zones in tank terminals, the chemical and pharmaceutical industry.
