PAS enhances PlantState Suite
PlantState Suite 6.5 provides new features to help improve process safety and to demonstrate good practice in accordance with process safety standards IEC 61511, ISA 84 and compliance with the OSHA 29 CFR 1910.119 rule for plants handling highly hazardous chemicals.
To facilitate compliance, PlantState Suite Version 6.5 now incorporates the ability to audit and enforce control system parameters when a pre-configured event occurs. This capability provides a mechanism for proving the proper execution of control-system and safety-instrumented-system shutdown routines. It acquires the necessary audit information automatically, thus precluding the need to manually prove the functionality at a subsequent time or during an audit.
Change management is another important factor in safety lifecycle management. PlantState Suite 6.5 is now integrated with PAS Integrity Software, which maps and tracks the configuration of the industrys major control and safety instrumented systems. With this capability, users can access control strategies and change management details in the context of any alarm or event with a single click, thus enabling faster and more accurate troubleshooting.
