Then the operator action is to troubleshoot and fix the situation. Otherwise, no alarm should occur when it works normally. Engineer: But the operator really does need to know where this system is in the cycle! Me: Why? Does he have to input a weight or flow number or something to make it proceed from step to step? Engineer: No, it’s automatic as long as it is working right. But they may need to know for a lot of reasons. Me: OK, so why not build a simple graphic element to show the progress of the system in its cycle, the time steps started or finished, the expected time of completion, and so forth.

Alarms everywhere are configured without meeting this criterion, which is one of the main reasons the alarm problem exists. Since DCS manufacturers have made the alarm system so easy to use, it is used for many inappropriate things. ” Without an agreement as to this working definition, which is the basic principle of proper alarm configuration, it is unlikely any improvement in an alarm system will be achieved. However, if this principle is followed, huge improvement in a system will be made, even if none of the other principles in this book are followed—it is that powerful.

Well, would you want your telephone, pager, cell phone, alarm clock, doorbell, and microwave oven to share the exact same sound? No. An important purpose of sound is to differentiate.
