What we’ve learned in a generation of studying those horrifying days after plant disasters is that more often than not, the final straw has been the plant operators consistently making wrong decisions based on the information they think they have about what is going on in the process. Many of these disasters have been blamed on cascades of alarms that made it impossible for operators to figure out which alarms actually were important and what they meant.

Any plant movement from dangerous operation into damaging operation should be managed by the emergency shutdown system. Alarms are too late here, so none are needed. Alarm Management Alarm management is all about the understanding, design, implementation, and operation of an effective alerting capability for production plant operators. These alerts are intended to notify operators of situations and events that require operator attention in an explicit way within an acceptable time frame. This book is written for users and designers of industrial process control systems.
