PAS PlantState Suite Alarm Management Partnership

PAS, a pioneer in alarm management software since 1993. Their PlantState Suite (PSS) incorporates more than 200 man-years of cumulative alarm management experience.  Poorly designed alarm systems can overwhelm operators with alarm floods and hinder their ability to respond quickly (and correctly) to plant upsets. Industry incident investigations have shown that time is the most critical factor to safely mitigate the impact of an upset.

NovaTech’s customers will be able to take full advantage of the PSS solution as it will be tightly integrated with the D/3’s existing alarm management capabilities and operator interface. PAS’ PlantState Suite software used in conjunction with the D/3‘s comprehensive alarm package facilitates complete customer compliance to the ISA-18.2-2009 Management of Alarm Systems for the Process Industries standard. Supported by the staff of professionals at PAS, NovaTech can provide a comprehensive alarm management solution based on the industry’s most rigorous alarm management methodology.
