As part of a multi-year contract between PAS, Inc. and BP Downstream, BP will use PAS inBound to help manage critical operational limits in its refineries and petrochemicals assets. PAS inBound captures, visualizes, analyzes and alerts operators on boundary data within plant operations, including process alarms, safety instrumented and environmental trip points, mechanical design limits, normal operating zones and safe operating envelopes. Analytics provide a scorecard on adherence to limits as well as detailed and trend information.

InBound also integrates into a plant's alert system to drive critical operator actions when appropriate. With PAS Inbound, companies can determine whether a plant is operating within safe operating limits, view safe operating limits in the context of existing control system graphic displays and research boundary compliance to identify areas of plant safety improvement.

PAS provides inBound to companies with operations in power, oil & gas, petrochemical, mining and other process industries. It is a part of PAS' PlantState Suite of products deployed at more than 600 sites worldwide, according to the company.
