GE announces Proficy SCADA Alarm Response Management Solution Pack
Proficy SCADA Alarm Response Management allows operators to focus on the critical alarms that create the largest problems. Alarms – including those that can shut down the entire facility or create safety hazards – can trigger step-by-step instructions to operators, even from within the window of their usual HMI /SCADA application. Operators do not have a new system to learn and can immediately improve response to alarms and ensure operations run smoothly. Additionally, Proficy can filter out nuisance alarms and take automatic action, so the team only needs to perform steps on certain alarms. As needed, Alarm Response Management will escalate alarms, notifying management of the critical situation and next steps, automatically triggering emails or text messages, for example, when the situation requires.
Proficy SCADA Alarm Response Management solution allows organizations to capture knowledge from experienced operators and provide it via traceable, easy to follow work instructions for newer employees. Operators see screens and Work Instructions that reflect the operational knowledge base and best practices of the company. Results are provided detailing where the alarms occurred and which response steps required the most amount of troubleshooting time, allowing organizations to analyze how to improve responses in the future.
An easy-to-use solutions pack, Alarm Response Management includes templates for creating response workflows and escalating alarms.
Proficy SCADA Alarm Response Management is the latest example of how GE’s $4 billion-a-year software and solutions services businesses are helping customers improve productivity.
“The insight through information provided by the Proficy Software platform is a foundation for optimizing operations,” said Sheila Kester, General Manager, Operations Management for GE Intelligent Platforms. “By tracking the results of the operations team – both for performance improvement and compliance, managers will know who performed what tasks, when they performed them, and how long each step took, giving them a sustainable competitive advantage in their field.
“In addition, with the ability to automate compliancy reporting, the solution provides the proof needed to show regulatory entities that the operations team is following proper procedures,” Kester continued. “This is particularly useful in the Food & Beverage, Water & Wastewater, Power & Energy, Life Sciences, and other heavily regulated industries.”
