Introduction to Sequence of Event Reporting

Exaquantum/SER is a unified sequence of events recorder solution that provides a plantwide integrated view of alarms, events and associated process data.  It identfies, collects, and processes alarms, events and process data related to plant trips from systems throughout the plant (DCS, historians, PIMS, PLCs, process automataion controllers, SCADA systems, safety systems, etc.) and stores the created information in an open and portable database. It can be used to provide trip detection based upon specific plant conditions and provide a full log of all relevant process information in the crucial period before and after a plant event.  Exaquantum/SER's plantwide integrated view can be used for peformance analysis and in aiding investigation teams in performing root cause analysis and problem identification. This solution assists in the elimination or reduction in the number of unexpected incidents and trips while increasing availability and production.

Alarm Analysis (Exaplog)

The new Exaplog event analysis package facilitates the quantitative analysis of problems in the DCS event log. By alternating analysis with alarm setting adjustment and operation sequence tuning, you can continuously improve operational efficiency.

Alarm Master Database (Exaquantum/AMD)

Exaquantum/AMD (hereafter known as 'AMD') is Yokogawa's Master Alarm Database solution. Based on ANSI/ISA-18.2-2009 and EEMUA 191, AMD assists managers and supervisors in monitoring, assessing and auditing the behaviour of alarm setpoints as part of an alarm documentation and rationalization program.

Alarm Reporting and Analytics (Exaquantum/ARA)

Plant operators are often faced with a high number of alarms and abnormal situations and are therefore unable to respond quickly enough to prevent safety related incidents, environmental issues, shutdowns and equipment damage. A poorly applied alarm management policy resulting in excessive alarms and events can also make operators routinely ignore alarms due to the excessive amount of information being received.

Data Historian (Exaquantum)

Exaquantum can acquire data from all facets of a process and transform that data into easily usable, high-value, widely distributed information. Exaquantum forms the basis of most Yokogawa OES.

Downtime Analytics (Exaquantum/DTA)

Planned production is often compromised by unplanned Downtime incidents and sub-optimal production rates that are not quantified in terms of Time, Rate Loss and the associated Reasons. Without this quantifiable information there is no way to consistently identify potential Downtime causes and to assign activities to make the necessary improvements avoiding future lost production.

Dynamic Alarm Management (AAASuite)

Advanced Alarm Administrator allows alarm review, alarm optimizing, and enhancement of alarm response by simplifying the process of alarm reduction and minimizing alarm flooding.

Safety Function Monitoring (Exaquantum/SFM)

Facilities often collect large amounts of safety data from different sources. Making sense of this data can be challenging and applying it to HAZOP & LOPA safety designs can be even harder.

Sequence of Events (Exaquantum/SER)

Exaquantum/SER is an event driven integrated reporting system that acquires alarm & event messages and point data from plant monitoring and control systems, and stores this information in a single database for ease of analysis.

Subsea Historian (Exaquantum/SSH)

Exaquantum/SSH collects data to assist operators in the early identification of valve degradation and dangerous process conditions to quickly isolate problems and take corrective actions before production and performance is impacted.

Manufacturing Operations Management

Manufacturing Operations Management (also called Manufacturing Execution Systems) is a method for visualizing the end-to-end process, with a goal of optimizing efficiency.
