How to display safety critical information without overwhelming the operators?

At the age of digitalization, software automation engineers have a stronger responsibility to NOT implement front-ends that are overwhelming for the operators. "An alarm message can be seen as a short telegram sent to the operator to inform him of a fault".

Such a message should be - as compact - as visual - as clear - as intelligent - as possible. RIVOPS is an alarm page for the control room. It shall grasp the attention of the operator for just a few seconds (<3s) and send its telegram message across the HMI displays of the control room. RIVOPS is nothing else than a smart OPC Alarm Client, it renders a dynamic representation for each fault scenario. That image is computed in real-time for any given alarm list. It contains an alarm banner compliant with the #OPCUA, #EMUA191, ISA 18.2 specifications. For those who believe that showing an image tells more than a hundred words, follow that link.

EATOPS builds control rooms equipped with an Alarm Summary overlaying Alarm Banners on the top of a 3D representation of the plant. The RIVOPS technology is able to display an OPC Alarm Message from an automatic-fault-scenario function running on the PLC. (compatible with #Siemens 400, 1200 and 1500 series).
