Alarm Management

June 22, 2012
Steve Elwart, director of systems engineering at Ergon Refining Inc., shares his decades of experience in effective alarm management strategies.

In this video presentation from The Automation Conference 2012, Elwart addresses an issue of major importance, not just to the processing industries, but all production industries — and that issue is effective alarm management. To help you address alarm management issues at your company, Elwart will explain Ergon’s efforts to implement an alarm management program in its refineries, including measurements used to benchmark the alarm system and the benefits seen by instituting the program. He also addresses work done at Ergon to standardize the EEMUA standard on operator graphics, their reason for moving to that standard, and the operator reaction and the benefits derived from using it.
