Features and Capabilities

  • Highly interactive graphical user interface makes alarm analysis easy for engineers
  • Customizable dashboard makes it possible to benchmark and maintain alarm system performance in line with standard alarm guidelines or local facility goals
  • User configurable widgets can be added to the dashboard, such as  
   Alarm Severity Distribution : Displays the distribution of alarm severity (e.g. critical, high, medium, low) in a specified period
 Alarm Rate Shows the peak or average alarm rate over a period of time for the selected interval per operator
  • Allows filtering alarms for a given time period (by severity, time of day, day of week, message, plant area, alarm category)
  • Interactive timeline bar that allows users to zoom in on a specific time range
  • Interactive visual analysis of alarm history facilitates detailed analysis of a dataset, which can be exported to CSV format
  • Top 10 views of the most frequent, fleeting (short duration) and standing (long duration) alarms show which alarms should be targeted first
  • Alarm correlation capability provides information for engineers to implement state-based suppression (a new feature in WW System Platform), improving the ability of an operator to discover the root cause of an issue
  • User Favorite option allows filters and time periods to be saved and shared with other users for collaboration or to recall a pre-defined analysis period
  • Supports HTML5 technology; compatibility with tablets enables anytime, anywhere access to alarm data
