Alarm Rationalization

Alarm Rationalization is the process of optimizing alarms at a facility, inhibiting alarm floods, and ensuring alarms perform their function as intended.

Both IEC 62682 and ISA/ANSI 18.2 define the requirements for a sustainable Alarm Management Lifecycle. One of the most resource intensive steps in this lifecycle is the documentation and rationalization of potential alarms.
