Best Practice / Customer Projects
iMes Solutions' Alarm Management Solution is applied at one of the World's most important Producers of chemical Products
Plant Historian AM - Alarm Management - has been in use at the world's largest chemical company since 2020. At the site in southwest Germany, a total of 11 plants with different PCS and PLC systems were connected in just a few weeks.
Plant Historian AM represents a robust, intuitive and scalable alarm management solution that meets all requirements. The different control systems and controllers are displayed centrally. Additional DCS/PLC systems could be connected without any downtimes.
By reducing the number of alarms, it was possible to reduce downtimes , optimize plant utilization and increase process quality after only a few months.
To companies in the process industry, Plant Historian AM - Alarm Management - offers an efficient, robust and transparent solution to increase plant safety and security and reduce the number of alarms. Our alarm management solution is suitable for both small and large companies. Company-wide solutions with more than 90 plants, 300 servers and over 300,000 measuring points have already been successfully implemented.
Leading petrochemical Company relies on Plant Historian Alarm Management & Alarm Rationalization
Since 2016, Plant Historian AM - Alarm Management has been used in one of the largest oil refineries in the German-speaking region - since 2018 in combination with the Plant Historian AR module Alarm Rationalization. Approximately 2000 employees work at the site.
A wide variety of process control systems and controllers from different manufacturers are in use - ABB Symphony and Foxboro I/A, safety-related controllers such as HIMA HiMax and Invensys Triconex. For the more than 120,000 daily messages in 3 facilities, there was no operational message monitoring or the possibility to intuitively evaluate alarm frequencies or alarm duration.
Plant Historian AM/AR provides the customer with sustainable alarm management while meeting all requirements. The various control systems and controllers are integrated and displayed centrally. In addition to central message monitoring and the graphical evaluation of alarm frequencies, the customer also uses the advantages of automated KPI reporting according to ISA 18.2.
The application is intuitive and user-friendly.
Systematic alarm management with Plant Historian AM/AR - Alarm Management/Rationalization - is equally suitable for small and large companies. Company-wide solutions with more than 300 servers can be realised without any difficulties.
Plant Historian Alarm Management at a Swiss Chemicals Company
Since 2007, Plant Historian AM - Alarm Management - has been applied at the south-east Bavarian dependency of one of the largest producers of speciality chemicals.
A wide variety of process control systems and controllers from different manufacturers such as Siemens PCS7, ABB 800xA, ABB Freelance, ABB Symphony as well as Hima HIMAX and Honeywell FSC are in use. A total of 6 control systems and controllers from different manufacturers were connected with 16 DCS connectors.
Plant Historian AM offers the customer the possibility of long-term archiving of alarms & events. The various control systems and controllers are integrated and displayed centrally.

Shift Book - Integration for SIMATIC PCS7 in one of the largest Sewage Treatment Plants in the German-speaking Region
For operators, the flexible Shift Book solution of iMes Solutions provides quick and easy information on any kind of incident in the plant - thus being able to delegate tasks and track events.
Plant operators, shift supervisors and plant managers can quickly obtain an up-to-date overview of the status of the entire plant both on the SIMATIC PCS 7 OS Client and on the computer in the office.
There are different ways to access the shift book:
- via a button in the WinCC button bar
- via the faceplate of the unit
- via the shift book symbol in the WinCC
The iMes shift book is designed to optimise and simplify processes and also takes into account regulatory requirements. Digital checklists, error message recording as well as maintenance tasks etc. are covered. Improved communication, fewer misunderstandings and less paper consumption are further advantages.
iMes Solutions' Shift Book solution is also available as a PCS7 Add-On in the Siemens Industry Mall.
