Do you need more automation?

Should you add more control strategies?
Do you need more interlocks?
Should you automate start-ups?
Do you need more control loops?

With an alarm management tool such as Alarm Manager, you can pinpoint areas where your operators intervene frequently. This tool analyzes not only alarms but also events and actions. We use these analyses to identify the areas where your operators are doing what the DCS could do. If you do not have an alarm management software tool, we can analyze your data.
