In this short article we discuss why Alarm systems management is now more important than ever. In todays age of data, sharing knowledge on Alarm systems management is becoming a necessity, read on to find out more and to see how Wilde can help you, through training and Gap analysis.
In today’s ever-increasing reliance on digital information, the management of asset performance data becomes more onerous as data volumes increase with added complexity and data types.
Every new asset purchased has a higher level of condition monitoring functionality than before, which is great, but without effective management of the condition monitoring data created, the additional functionality (and therefore benefit) is wasted and can increase problems down the line.
To add to this scenario, in recent years, assets are now subject to more volatile and extreme environments that can lead to assets activating (or tripping) more frequently, thereby generating more alarm-related data than when operating in more benign environments.
It is not surprising then that for Control Rooms set-up and operational from just a few years ago, managing Alarms can easily become overwhelmed by too much data in todays’ working environment. This leads to not only inefficient performance but can increase the potential for major failures occurring and put too much burden on the Control Room Operators.
To increase your knowledge on this subject and to become more informed, we would recommend taking part in some specific ASM training. Wilde has for many years had a close working relationship with EEMUA (The Engineering Equipment and Material Users Association) and provide Alarms System Management Training that aligns with EEMUA’s 191 – the globally accepted and leading guide to good practice for all aspects of alarm systems.
Looking to Identify and Remedy Human Factor Issues Involving Alarm Systems?
Secure your place at our forthcoming popular & respected Alarms Systems Management training course, providing insight on how the British Health & Safety Executive (HSE) expects alarm systems to be managed.
Do your Alarm Systems Management policies and procedures match industry best practice?
In this article we have discussed why your Alarms can be overactive, and the impact this has on your operational environment. We also discussed how training and consultancy (specifically a Gap analysis) can increase your knowledge and awareness of Alarm Systems Management to help you improve operational performance and align with industry best practice.
