High-Performance Control Room services improve operations by embedding human performance elements into graphic and control room design. Simplifying methods for how operators view and perceive data allows them to quickly prevent or correct issues.
Abnormal conditions often occur because of mechanical failures, instrumentation malfunctions, or general combined process disturbances, and can escalate into costly and deadly accidents if left unattended. When a control room operator is unaware of a potential problem, the likelihood that an accident may occur is increased which could lead to reduced production, availability, and reliability.
Operators are constantly challenged with being keenly aware of emerging situations and reacting quickly to resolve those issues before they escalate. Compounding circumstances can be difficult to identify due to a combination of distractions in the control room, unmanageable alarms, a multitude of graphic displays, and other preventable conditions.
High-Performance Control Room services provides operators with a focused awareness of plant activities that will improve information analysis, easily identify critical conditions, and allow quick response to mitigate undesired consequences.
The principals used not only enhance process performance, but also reduce operator stress and fatigue, preserve knowledge and expertise, and improve lifecycle management.
