Alarm Management Track Overview

Please note: The content on this webpage pertains to our AEC 2020 event that took place virtually on October 28, 2020. This webpage will be updated for AEC 2023 by January.

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 cost to attend AEC 2020 is $600/ISA Member and $900/Non ISA Member. To become an ISA Member click here
