Title
(EN) APPARATUS AND METHODS FOR ALERT MANAGEMENT IN PROCESS CONTROL INSTRUMENTATION
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉS DE GESTION D'ALERTE DANS UNE INSTRUMENTATION DE COMMANDE DE PROCESSUS
Abstract
(EN)
Apparatus and methods for alert management in instrumentation are disclosed. An example method includes generating a set of alerts within a process control instrument, processing the set of alerts to compare the set of alerts to known combinations of alerts, determining if one of the known combinations of alerts matches the set of alerts based on the comparison of the set of alerts to the known combinations of alerts, and identifying a recommended action instruction based on the determination.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un appareil et des procédés de gestion d'alerte dans une instrumentation. Un procédé donné à titre d'exemple consiste à générer un ensemble d'alertes à l'intérieur d'un instrument de commande de processus, à traiter l'ensemble d'alertes pour comparer l'ensemble d'alertes à des combinaisons connues d'alertes, à déterminer si une des combinaisons connues d'alertes correspond à l'ensemble d'alertes sur la base de la comparaison de l'ensemble d'alertes aux combinaisons connues d'alertes, et à identifier une instruction d'action recommandée sur la base de la détermination.
