The Alarm Management Handbook fills a void in an important technology area within the process industries that has been kept under wraps until now, with the specific aim of improving safety and reliability at the world’s process plants.

This comprehensive and easy-to-read book provides step-by-step instructions on how process plant personnel can improve their alarm management systems, including development of an alarm philosophy, rationalization of existing alarm strategies, and the application of real-time alarm management.

PAS was the first company to introduce commercial alarm management software in 1996, and has become The Global Alarm Authority by completing hundreds of alarm management projects around the world over the last decade. As the industry’s authority, PAS has collected a broad range of trade secrets and intellectual property into this must-read handbook for engineers and operations staff across the process industries.

From the Inside Flap:

At last, a complete best practices book for designing and maintaining an Effective Alarm Management System.

Abnormal situations at process plants around the world kill and/or injure people, cost the industry billions of dollars, and cause environmental harm every year. Investigation reports from many industrial accidents often point to faulty alarm systems as a contributing factor that hindered an operator’s ability to prevent or minimize the consequences of such accidents. Properly designed and maintained alarm systems drastically help improve plant safety, reliability, and profitability.

This comprehensive and easy-to-read book combines over a decade of research with the experiences of many alarm management professionals to bring you field-proven methodologies that have helped industrial plants around the world improve their alarm management systems. This book provides step- by-step instructions on how to improve the performance of your alarm system, including, benchmarking an alarm system performance against industry best practices, developing an alarm philosophy document, rationalizing alarms, and applying real-time alarm management optimization strategies.

Whatever the nature of your alarm systems, you will find The Alarm Management Handbook a necessary part of your operational excellence and other business improvement initiatives. This book is fun-to-read and filled with light-hearted scenarios that bring a human touch to what could otherwise be just another dry engineering topic.

Bill Hollifield and Eddie Habibi at PAS have laid it all out. The trade secrets and the intellectual property they have gathered on the topic of alarm management at PAS since 1994 is exposed for all to benefit.

The Alarm Management Handbook will help you make your long-lasting mark in your organization by providing you with strategies to improve your company’s bottom line.
