PLANO, Texas – Invensys Operations Management has announced that it will be the exclusive provider of a unique process safety decision-support solution from ACM Facility Safety, a division of ACM Automation Inc. Under the terms of a new partnership agreement, Invensys will now offer ACM Facility Safety's process safety decision-support software, Machu Picchu, to the global process industry.
Designed to work with a plant's process automation, control and safety systems, the Machu Picchu decision-support tool provides visibility into process risks and combines expert knowledge of the plant's risk parameters, diagnostic alarms and historical operator observations to monitor the integrity of all safeguards 24x7. It then calculates the level of risk caused by a deviation and provides operators a set of pre-engineered contingency plans or detailed instructions on how to address abnormal situations.
"Together, Invensys and ACM are embarking on a new path to make industrial plants safer," said Steve Elliott, environment and safety excellence principal for Invensys Operations Management. “Invensys will take responsibility for the delivery of new solutions that enable customers to continuously track deviations between the plant's designed risk profile and the actual operating risk profile in real time. Using dashboard displays, plant operators will be able to readily identify, mitigate, minimize and potentially eliminate process risks. This expanded solution capability enhances our Triconex safety software and systems to help our clients achieve sustainable environment and safety excellence."
