Compliance to Standards Entails Investment in Alarm Management Solutions

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. 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.

"A new or upgraded alarm management solution could potentially help support many transformative technologies. Two technologies that come to mind are Big Data analytics and procedural automation. For instance, the information from a new alarm management system implementation can be used in the context of a data analytics solution. Many large plants are finding hidden value in some of these masked, abnormal situations – ones that are near misses, degrading situations," according to Mark Sen Gupta, Research Director and key author of ARC's Alarm Management Market Research Report.
