GoalArt's unique and industrially proven technology solves the alarm problems of industrial plants.

A plant is operating reasonably well, but in fact, the control room situation is far from perfect. The operators are overloaded with alarms every day. The problems are:
  • Unnecessary sensors and alarms
  • Wrongly tuned alarm limits
  • Irrelevant alarms for certain operating states
  • Consequential alarm cascades
The large amount of alarms have lead to a situation where the operators regularly have to ignore alarms, that is, they acknowledge them without knowing if there was anything wrong. Sometimes, important alarms are also ignored, leading to stops, suboptimal production, and equipment damage.

Sometimes there is a more complex fault situation, which is followed by an alarm cascade and an emergency stop. The root cause is seldom discovered. Instead, the plant is restarted, and after a while, a new stop occurs, maybe for the same reason.

The plant seems to be operating reasonably well, but in the long run, the unnecessary costs are very high.

GoalArt can solve all these alarm problems in an industrial plant, removing nuiscance alarms, suppressing alarms irrelevant in the current operating state, and reducing alarm cascades to a single root cause.

Solving the alarm problems leads to increased productivity, fewer stops, fewer emissions, and safer production. It also gives a better work environment for operators and service personnel. Finally, it is also possible to expand the plant and/or the number of alarms without a risk och overloading the personnel.

A typical ROI time for an average industrial plant would be 0.5 - 3 years. However, if the plant is prone to larger upsets, the system may be paid off by avoiding a single major incident.
