A properly managed alarm system has become an integral and critical part of any production and process facility. EEMUA 191 since it was first published in 1999 became the de facto guideline to which industry looked for guidance and good practise on alarm management and alarm management systems. Today, we have a set of standards such as IEC 62682 and in the UK - BS 62682.

To establish a system based on these standards and guidelines or merely ascertain if a current system is working effectively and within the KPI’s set out in these regulatory documents, alarm data must be continuously collected and analysed. With many disparate sources of alarm data from multiple control system vendors, just collecting data can be a challenge in itself.

The ProcessVue Suite of software has been developed with the benefit of over 40 years’ experience in alarm management systems. The architecture has been designed to allow interfacing with virtually any control system, bringing all data into a standard configurable format, for simple Sequence of Event display, high level Key Performance Indicator reporting and analysis and Master Alarm Database (MADb) for rationalisation and documentation.



  • Measure and reduce operator workload.
  • Highlight problematic equipment.
  • Aid Incident Investigation.

Control & Maintenance

  • Consolidates alarm and event data.
  • Benchmark alarm performance against global standards.
  • Concentrate Maintenance on bad actors.


IT Department

  • Web Based clients means easy roll-out and reduced maintenance costs.
  • VM support reduces hardware footprint and saves money.


  • Analyse and compare plants.
  • Increase plant performance and reliability.
  • Low cost adoption and maintenance.
  • Reduce downtime and increase profits.

Report filters

Report data can be refined using an easy to use filtering system. For example, you can apply a filter to the frequency analysis report to give you just the top 10 priority 1 alarms, or priority one alarms from a particular plant area or unit

  • Apply filters to the reports using Include and/or Exclude controls.
  • Filter by Tag, Description, Priority, Plant, Plant Area, Unit and many more.
  • Save popular or heavily used filters for later use.
  • Link popular reports to a button on the interface for quick access.
  • Apply saved filters to automated reports.
  • Edit the filters using simple SQL code.

Fully automated reporting engine

The reporting engine also comes with a fully automated scheduler as standard. This allows you automatically generate any report or group of reports at any time of day. Want to know what alarms are on the shelf at shift change over? – No problem.

  • A Fully programmable report scheduler.
  • Schedule a single report or groups of multiple reports.
  • Automatically print, store or email the reports.
  • Automatically apply your pre-defined filters to the generated reports.
