Identify First Alarms

With the addition of the First Out Report to the vendor’s LogMate Alarm Management System, operators and engineers have a forensic tool designed to immediately identify the likely “first out” alarm that marked the beginning of an upset.

The First Out Report provides a snapshot style visualization of plant upsets in order of alarm activations. Using a proprietary grouping and sorting algorithm, the LogMate First Out Report identifies upsets and displays associated alarms sorted by chronological activation order. The LogMate First Out Report is used during incident reviews to provide insight into root causes. Engineers can also use the report as a design tool for eliminating duplicate, redundant, or cascading alarms. The First Out Report is available with the LogMate ACE alarm analysis module.
