In modern process plants, automation has brought too many alarms to the operator. Excessive numbers of alarms not only distract the operator; he or she often would miss the important ones that are masked by the presence of numerous other alarms of less importance. Careful and systematic analysis called 'rationalisation' is necessary to ensure that only those alarms that require some action from the operator are presented to him, while also ensuring that all deviations to process parameters that require an action are presented with the correct set points. This course covers various issues in alarm rationalisation and alarm management.
