Introduction to Alarm Management

TiPS Simplifies The Alarm Rationalization Process

Understanding and Owning Alarm Rationalization

Alarm Rationalization Services

Per ANSI/ISA 18.2, alarm rationalization reconciles the identified need for an alarm or alarm system change with the principles in the alarm philosophy. For most, the alarm rationalization process requires a significant number of resources, a large amount of time and is often considered the most daunting task in the alarm management lifecycle. Ultimately, the result of the alarm rationalization process is clear documentation of alarms consistent with the alarm philosophy.

Some companies have in-house alarm rationalization expertise and simply need good tools to assist in the initial alarm rationalization effort and subsequent alarm management of change process. For these customers, LogMate™ includes Alarm KB™ a module within ACE™ that provides these tools and facilitates both alarm rationalization and management of change.
