Curvaceous Software Visual Explorer 2.5 - New Alarm Management Features Make Real Impact

Press Release   •   Feb 16, 2010 10:00 GMT

 

Curvaceous Software Limited’s Curvaceous Visual Explorer 2.5 (CVE 2.5) is the only programme that lets you view hundreds of process variables and their alarm limits in a single graph and its new features in Alarm Management have got the process industry talking.

Ian Nimmo, Founder and President of UCDS Inc and a member of the ITE (CEI) in the UK said: “At a recent conference I saw some outstanding alarm work by Dr Robin Brooks of Curvaceous Software Ltd. This was the first alarm management paper in the last ten years that got me excited as he explained how alarms can achieve management objectives, how to understand alarm settings in a new light and how to change them correctly.”

Alarm Rationalisation & Management has been wholly revolutionised in CVE 2.5 with new Consistent HiLo Alarm Limits & Alerts, which work from process history data rather than alarm log data.  CVE 2.5 provides instant feedback on Annunciation Rates and Standing Alarm Counts and delivers minimum time savings of 20% to perform Alarm Review meetings as well as delivering ongoing reductions. Curvaceous won the EPSC Award for the invention of Consistent Alarms in 2003.

Dr Robin Brooks, Managing Director of Curvaceous Software said: “We’ve won awards for our work in Alarm Management and are delighted at the overwhelming response our improved Alarm Management features in CVE 2.5 have received from the oil and gas, pharmaceutical and chemical industries.”

Curvaceous’ GPC technology mathematically unites for the first time the three key plant applications of process control, alarm management and quality control to achieve business objectives.  It enables a user to see, understand and reduce variability in their processes and delivers significant cost savings and business efficiencies.

Ian Nimmo will be giving a keynote speech at Curvaceous Software Limited’s TAP Forum Customer Event, 24 – 26th March 2010.
