UReason has extensive experience in guiding alarm philosophy processes. An alarm philosophy document includes topics like the purpose of the alarm system, description of the alarm management process, the alarm design principles, the alarm presentation standard and performance and metrics.
The purpose of an alarm philosophy document is to provide standards for establishing the purpose, use and need for control system alarms with directions for prioritising and presenting alarms in the distributed control systems (DCS) and supervisory control and data acquisition systems (SCADA). An alarm philosophy document is required to align the alarm management systems used at your site. An effective alarm management system ensures that deviations from acknowledged operating conditions are prioritised and communicated effectively to the board operator.
Deliverables: Through meetings and interviews with key players a site specific alarm philosophy document (document structure) is established.
