Procedural Operations provides a controlled environment to build, test, validate and execute special procedures within critical processes. Based on Abnormal Situation Management (ASM®) Consortium research and guidelines, the solution allows users to configure, execute, analyze and manage automated operating procedures, ranging from simple startups and shutdowns to complex grade transitions.
It uses pre-built tabular and flowchart displays to show all procedural actions in a function-filled format familiar to most operators. Further, it provides operator-centric procedure execution status with the right information presented to the operator in the context of the active task. Part of the Experion PKS system, it provides a single, consistent environment for all operations whether it is operator actions, automatic monitoring, automated control or alarming.
