Alarm Management Track Overview

This year’s track will explore alarm management as it relates to instrument reliability. What procedures are in place when an alarm rings in? What are the implications of those procedures? Do unscheduled shutdowns occur because of "unreliable" instruments/measurements or "false" alarms? 

What do companies do to reduce the amount of alarms that might be considered false? Is a Band-Aid solution applied time and time again? Is the instrument replaced in hopes that the alarms will disappear? Is there a comprehensive analysis performed of the event that caused the alarm? 

The majority of the time the instrument is doing exactly what it is designed to do - measure a variable and notify a control system. What is often overlooked is the underlaying cause of that undesirable measured variable when human factors are at play, such as normalization of warning signs, group think and focusing on the wrong risks. 

Come listen to your industry peers and their approach to alarm management; reducing false alarms.

The same content will be offered for each track on Day 1 (October 27) and Day 2 (October 28). Please register for the day that you prefer. 

Our Unlimited Conference Pass gives you access to all sessions in all tracks, and is transferable! You can attend the conference one day and a second person can attend the conference the other day (think 2 for 1 deal). The cost of this pass is $299/ISA Member and $349/Non ISA Member. Please register for this pass via the track that you think you will attend the most sessions for.
