Consolidated Alarm Management Software (CAMS for HIS)
A Smart Approach
CAMS for HIS is practical and has an immediate effect. It accepts the fact that the sources of alarms are proliferating while customer engineering time and resources are limited. Rather than solely relying on rigorous top-down alarm design and redesign, Yokogawa provides a practical, overarching real-time alarm management system that delivers the right information to the right people at the right time.

In real time, CAMS for HIS integrates the acquisition of all alarm and event (A&E) data; allows customers to add useful alarm attributes such as user names, alarm purposes, and allowable time before action; suppresses nuisance alarms; and enables the operator to focus on important alarms through filtering, sorting, eclipsing, shelving, and load shedding. Through these innovative functions, CAMS for HIS gives customers bottom-up flexibility in implementing a real-time consolidated alarm management system.
CAMS for HIS also helps customers implement the top-down approach to alarm design by defining good alarms with attributes such as purpose, consequence, and priority.
