PAS , a provider of alarm management software and consulting services for the process industries, says BASF has selected its alarm management software for its enterprisewide alarm management initiative. The agreement enables BASF to deploy PAS’ PlantState Suite (PSS) software throughout BASF operating facilities worldwide.
PAS offers a comprehensive real-time alarm management software suite with capabilities for alarm & event data collection and analysis, performance metrics manager, documentation and rationalization, state-based alarm handling, flood suppression, alarm shelving, and alarm systems auditing.
“BASF conducted a rigorous evaluation of available alarm management technologies and selected PAS as its partner because PAS offers currently the most valuable solution for BASF,” says Simon Kronemeier, Automation Technology, BASF Ludwigshafen, Germany. “As a corporate initiative, we plan to use PAS software to monitor and improve alarms within each of our operating plants.”
