Video: Practical Application of an Alarm Management Program

Lubrizol's Troy Conant shares how alarm management is a changing of the guard in philosophy. Transitioning control systems from “every alarm and the kitchen sink” to actionable alarms that stem only from undesired or unexpected fluctuations is accompanied by some serious challenges and time investment, but the payoff is monumental. Nuisance alarms will be eliminated, appropriate priority levels assigned, every single alarm will necessitate action, alarm floods during upsets will be an artifact of a distant past, and more.

This 32:16 video from his Emerson Exchange workshop presentation describes the manner with which one manufacturing unit undergoes the change.
