PAS released its latest version of PlantState Suite™ product, which includes inBound™ Analytics, a robust boundary management solution to improve situation awareness in the control room and prevent industrial accidents.
According to Dennis Ahrens, Chief Software Architect., the new release of PlantState Suite allows users to configure and receive alarm boundary notifications to proactively manage safe plant operations. "It provides advanced analyses for boundary violations in order to identify operational risks and vulnerabilities," said Ahrens.
The inBound Analytics module provides clear visibility and unique insights to violations of mechanical, design, safety and operational limits in real time. Analyses such as frequent violations, violations by boundary type, violations by unit, and time in violation can be obtained for root cause analysis.
inBound is a fully integrated add-on module to PAS's PlantState Suite for Alarm Management and Control Loop Performance Optimization. With the latest release of inBound, process operators and plant management can now view the overall status of their production in the context of operational and safety boundaries in real time.
