An important part of any alarm rationalization process is to provide documentation for each alarm.

The Control Arts AlarmManager provides both a clean interface for managing the overall DCS alarm configuration and a user-friendly input screen for adding or modifying alarm procedures.

Providing a front-end to the alarm documentation, the AlarmManager module stores all user configuration data in an SQL Server or Access database, allowing easy access from anywhere in the plant.
The EEMUA standard has recommendations on alarm configurations - such things as priority distributions and alarms per controller and operator. It's easy to check that your system meets these recommendations, and easy to determine what changes have been made to the alarm system since the last benchmark.
