It is a proven fact that “Alarm flooding” has a substantial impact on production and operational costs, while being a contributing factor to accidents. As manufacturing lines, factories, and plants, increase in complexity, so does this problem. Although the information is available in the SCADA system, distinguishing critical alarms while maintaining an overview of events has become increasingly difficult.
Another fact is that by weeding out the typical 80% of non-critical alarms and focus on the 20% that are relevant, you would be able to benefit on several parameters:
init .AMS is a solution designed to efficiently address the mentioned parameters. .AMS is based on the ISA 18.2 Alarm Management Standard, and packaged into a turn-key solution that is directly adaptable to widely used SCADA systems, such as iFIX.
