The newest release of the PlantState Suite (PSS) software, version 8.3, includes the new Alarm Mechanic feature, which is designed to improve console operator performance by minimizing nuisance alarms through automated analytics and recommendations. With the addition of Alarm Mechanic, PSS 8.3 fully automates complex analyses that determine alarm delay-time settings, a critical method for solving nuisance alarm problems. Alarm Mechanic replaces manual calculations and guesswork with automated, deterministic recommendations to enable consistent alarm settings. PSS 8.3 also incorporates custom alarm analytics, corporate operational excellence programs and risk-tracking dashboards. — PAS Global, LLC, Houston
