ISA Publishes Alarm Management Textbook Authored By PAS

Alarm Management: Seven Effective Methods for Optimum Performance, previously published by PAS now available from ISA

HOUSTON, March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of the need for alarm management as a means to improve operating reliability and safety at the world's operating plants, the Instrument Society of America (ISA) has entered into agreement with PAS, Inc. to re-publish The Alarm Management Handbook under the ISA publications brand.

An initial printing of the new book, titled Alarm Management: Seven Effective Methods for Optimum Performance and co-authored by PAS CEO, Eddie Habibi, and PAS Principal Alarm Management Consultant, Bill Hollifield is now available from the ISA bookshop and online information portal.

The book is the only text on Alarm Management available from the ISA and represents a major step forward for adoption of the 7-step approach to Alarm Management as put forward by PAS. The 7-step approach improves the performance of alarm systems, by benchmarking alarm system performance against industry standards, developing an alarm philosophy document, rationalizing alarms, and applying real-time alarm management optimization strategies. Many companies worldwide have already purchased multiple copies of the PAS publication and adopted the 7-step approach as a necessary part of their operational excellence and reliability initiatives.

The new text, Alarm Management: Seven Effective Methods for Optimum Performance is available in softcover from the ISA at http://www.isa.org/alarmmanagement for $79. The original Alarm Management Handbook will continue to also be available from PAS in hardcover for $69.95.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
