Honeywell Introduces DynAMo Alarm And Operations Management Software

Nov. 30, 2015
Next generation solution improves operator effectiveness and plant safety.

Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) introduces DynAMo Alarm and Operations Management software offering a single unified platform and user experience for all operations integrity functions. The scalable offering allows customers to start with Alarm Management or Operator Logbook and add other functions over time. DynAMo reportedly can reduce alarms by up to 80% and reduce root cause analysis time by 60% over conventional methods. It can also increase throughput by up to 8% and cut energy consumption by up to 5%, according to the company.

DynAMo can be integrated as part of Honeywell’s industrial Internet of things (IIoT). DynAMo is enabled by Honeywell Pulse, a mobile application that allows users to remotely monitor critical alarms or events. Honeywell Pulse sends customized, real-time plant performance notifications to a users’ smartphone and provides connectivity and collaboration tools to assist with issue resolution.

DynAMo is vendor neutral, working with any vendor’s control system in addition to Honeywell’s Experion distributed control system (DCS) platform. It complies to global standards for alarm management and integrity operating windows including API 584, EEMUA 191, ISA 18.2 and IEC 62682. DynAMo includes advanced alarm management metrics, master alarm databases, integral DCS operator alarm help, operations monitoring for integrity operating windows, limit repositories and smart electronic shift logs for secure shift handover processes.
