In industrial settings, operation managers are required to maintain control of many different aspects of one or more processes. They need to be confident that abnormal situations or deviations are identified, investigated, and followed up quickly and effectively.
The j5 Event Manager application provides a system that measures key operating variables in the plant processes against defined limits. When variables exceed those limits, the j5 Event Manager brings this to the operator's attention.
The j5 Event Manager application can watch process control tags, set limits on continuous-value tags, and determine which states of discrete-value tags constitute alarms. A j5 Operations Logbook entry is generated for every tag value that is out of range.
