Manufacturing plants have a wide range of alarm configurations and systems to alert key personnel in the event of an issue. Some of these issues are minor nuisance alarms; others are critical and require immediate attention. What if a software system could distinguish between these two very different scenarios and automatically engage the right resources with the appropriate urgency? Fortunately, it can – with the Critical Alarm module from Dude Solutions.
The Critical Alarm module is all about prevention. It helps you keep the building-related concerns in your plant from becoming emergencies by enabling a seamless data exchange between your maintenance system and your intelligent building devices. Critical Alarm receives notifications, evaluates the content, removes duplicates and nuisance alarms, and automates the process of generating work orders based on the alarm priority. Once the system has verified alarm notification responses, it routes them appropriately. If a situation is particularly urgent, Critical Alarm will give it precedence. It’s the equivalent of having a round-the-clock security officer monitoring and responding to building-related issues in your plant, so your crews can work safely and effectively across all three shifts.
