Alarm sub-systems serve a crucial function in the daily operation of a production or management process. In a normal mode of operation, these systems provide operators a snapshot of the current health of the equipment and overall process performance. However, if alarms are not carefully monitored, a crucial event could be missed with potentially damaging consequences. These damages might be felt environmentally and economically, adversely affect equipment, and potentially endanger lives.
