Improved alarm management solution
04 November 2015
Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) has introduced the new DynAMoAlarm and Operations Management software which is designed to help process industries better manage operations and alarms.
By combining Honeywell’s alarm management software with its operations management software, DynAMo is said to deliver operations integrity through better plant safety, availability and compliance.
The new solution provides a single unified platform and user experience for all operations integrity functions. It is also a scalable, allowing customers to start with simple Alarm Management or Operator Logbook and adding other functions over time to enable a fully integrated Operations Integrity solution.
Tyron Vardy, product director, HPS Advanced Solutions business, said: “It can reduce alarms by up to 80%, and reduce root cause analysis time by 60% over conventional methods. It can also increase throughput by up to 8% and cut energy consumption by up to 5%, with a typical return on investment of less than 3 months.”
Commenting on the solution Mark Sen Gupta, senior consultant at ARC Advisory Group, said: “Alarm management concepts have been around for decades to help operators see pertinent alarms more clearly. However, the goal isn’t about reducing alarms. It’s about getting to the right decisions quickly. By integrating alarm management with operations management, this new solution from Honeywell should help reduce one of largest causes of incidents in the process industries: operator error.”
DynAMo is enabled by Honeywell Pulse, a mobile application that allows users to remotely monitor critical alarms or events. Honeywell Pulse sends customised, real-time plant performance notifications to a users’ smartphone and provides connectivity and collaboration tools to assist with issue resolution.
DynAMo is vendor neutral, working with any vendor’s control system in addition to Honeywell’s Experion DCS platform.
