Houston, TX – May 2, 2006 – PAS today announced its public release of The Alarm Management Handbook: A Comprehensive Guide, co-authored by its CEO and Founder, Eddie Habibi, and Principal Alarm Management Consultant, Bill Hollifield. The Alarm Management Handbook is the first and only complete publication on alarm management in the process industries. 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. “With this book, PAS firmly solidifies their position as the leading authority on alarm management. The wealth of information provided here will prove useful to both the alarm management novice and expert alike,” says Lee Swindler, Control Systems Manager at Lyondell. 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. 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. The book will be available shortly from leading booksellers; however, advance copies are available on request by emailing About PAS PAS is a leading supplier of People & Asset Solutions to the process industries worldwide and has been delivering value to customers around the world since 1993.
