Compliance to Standards Drives Investment in Alarm Management Systems

New ARC Advisory Group research on the alarm management market reveals that reliable alarm management continues to be a focus in industrial process plants around the world. This is driven largely by the need to conform to current standards and best practices like ISA 18.2, EEMUA 191, and IEC 62682 and pushed by governments and insurers. The primary goal of these standards and practices is to develop a continuous improvement approach to alarm management and ease the “alarm burden” on operators, so they only see the information they need to see, particularly during process upsets or other abnormal situations.

"Current alarm management solutions should help leverage transformative technologies more completely. Many facilities find hidden value in masked abnormal situations – ones that are near misses or degrading situations. These learnings are then applied to supervisory applications to increase efficiency and safety. Alarm management offers end users an opportunity to lower their operational risk, institutionalize operating knowledge, increase their efficiency, and improve their sustainability," according to Mark Sen Gupta, Director of Research and key author of ARC's Alarm Management Market Research.
