26 MAPS AGENT SERVER – AGENT DEFINITION Agents are called Agents because, instead of only containing data, like simple database records, they also usually contain the ability to operate or act on their own data, driving its values and to read and write to other objects, and so influence them.This concept is very much in line with object-oriented thinking, and is primarily why we refer to Adroit as being "object-oriented".
27 OBJECT BASED TECHNOLOGY All Agents are Intelligent Objects – contain state information, behaviours and action (combined sum of conditions)Custom Agents – Build own objects to represent plant items and equipmentUser Defined Types (UDT depends on protocol support)Each Agent type is a Dynamic Link Library (DLL)
28 BASIC AGENTS - DIGITAL Agent Type – Digital Agent Name – DIG01 Properties AvailableDescription - DIG01.agentdescriptionValue - DIG01.valueTextValue – DIG01.textvalue
32 Statistical AgentThe Statistical agent provides the basic functionality for a user to build a statistical process control strategy using its built in data collection method and by linking to other internal agents.
33 Ideal for Production, Recipe, Batching Systems DBAcess AgentBenefits from using this Agent• Connect to most known databases using OLEDB compliant databases• Update Data in Tables• Read Data from Tables• Delete Data in Tables• Retrieve Data from TablesTransact based on time, trigger tagor bothIdeal for Production, Recipe, Batching Systems

58 AMA (Alarm Management and Analysis) Benefits from using this product• Improved Productivity• Improved Performance• Better Decision Making around Asset Management• Distinguish between Alarms and Events• All reports based on ISA 18.02, EEMUA 191• Ease of Use
59 Alarm System Terminology An Alarm is an event to which an operator must react, respond and acknowledge.An Alarm System is there to prevent, or at least minimize, physical and economic loss through operator intervention in response to the condition that was alarmed on any given process.Secondly, an Alarm System should provide and alarm and event log.
60 Current Problems Alarm flooding during plant upset Too many standing alarms – accepted as ‘normal’Too many ‘high’ priority alarmsLack of real information to support decision making
61 ConsequencesOperators presented with too many alarms may overlook an important indicator of an abnormal situation, or be so overwhelmed as to unnecessarily trip the unit as a safety measure instead of trying to decipher the information being conveyed.Both scenarios can significantly impact the safety of plant personnel and the efficiency of plant operations.
62 Benefits of using AMA Measure and improve Alarm System Performance Analyse historical alarmsHighlight unwanted / unnecessary alarmsHighlight problem areas in the plantAnalyse alarms and associated process variablesMonitor operator alarm interactionValuable part of an alarm management strategy
63 Adroit Alarm Management Agent Licensed component of an Adroit agent serverRoute new and existing Adroit alarms to a SQL databaseCategorise alarmsAssign associated process values for alarmsSet performance KPI targetsDatabase housekeeping
64 Adroit Alarm Management Agent Configure pre-defined Reasons for operator input on specified alarmsLink documents to alarms (e.g. SOPs)Multiple Adroit agent servers can connect to a single Alarm Management databaseBulk configuration with Excel import / export

71 Operator Performance Alarms acknowledged in time List alarms not acknowledged in timeAcknowledged incidents per hour
72 Alarm System Performance Dashboard The Alarm System Performance dashboard measures the performance of an alarm system in terms of operator manageability of the system based on guidelines defined in the EEMUA 191 publication.
73 Performance Comparison Report The Performance Comparison report enables the user to compare alarm system KPIs for two user defined periods. The overall system performance improvement as well as the relevant supporting information is shown. The KPI value and status indicator is shown for each KPI for each period. An Indicator shows whether a positive or negative change has occurred.
74 Bad Actors ReportSystem Incidents ‘bad actors’ are summarized by type, by category and by incident, whereby each graph allows drill through to a detailed report for the series
75 Alarm Category ReportThis report summarises incidents for the user selected Category (or Categories) in top 10 graphs, by type and by incident. Incident details are then shown in a data grid grouped by category.
76 Alarm Type ReportThis report summarises incidents for the user selected Type (or Types) in top 10 graphs, by category and by incident. Incident details are then shown in a data grid grouped by alarm type.
77 Reasons and Notes Analysis This report highlights the prevalent reasons, sub reasons and notes assigned to incidents.
80 Challenges with SCADA / PLC Data Unstructured with no business contextData requires processingHuge amounts of data to manageDifficult to extract, process and present the data in reportsDifficult to analyse
81 Challenges – Relational database Relational design is very specific to each reporting solutionSQL skills required to design the databaseData insertion is more complexMust understand relationships to retrieve data
