Barry D. Payne & Associates, Inc. provides application services from traditional configuration to advanced strategies that bring out the best in your control system!

Enhanced Graphics and HMI Strategies

  • Standardize subpicture library for maintainability.
  • Utilize layers of detail and specific color selection to improve visibility of critical information.
  • Utilize custom change zones and targets to improve user friendliness of graphic displays.
  • Enhance Operator recognition with standardized use of reserved colors for alarm management and status.
  • Use custom trends in graphics for historical data.

Automated Procedures and Logic

  • Implement logic blocks for operational interlocks.
  • Utilize control programs to automate repetitive procedures, and to standardize strategies.
  • Combine graphics with point configuration and control programs to automate step changes in continuous operations, or recipe changes between campaigns.
  • Utilize graphics and control programs to trigger on-line help in response to equipment state changes.

Dynamic Training Simulators

  • Simulate any part of the process plant controls and associated safety system logic or interlocks.
  • Utilizes material and energy balances based on theoretical and empirical algorithms.
  • Include instrument failure modes, process equipment failure modes, and pre-defined scenarios for training.
  • Controlled by an Instructor at a separate console.
  • The simulation can run in real-time mode or in speed-up mode, as selected by the Instructor.
  • Provides Operator Certification documentation.

Alarm Management Strategies

  • Utilize control programs to maintain critical alarm settings, and control manual bypass occurrences.
  • Prioritize and classify alarms, and inhibit reporting of nuisance alarms to improve critical alarm recognition.
  • Utilize control programs to manage alarm status for backup or out-of-service process equipment.
  • Combine graphics with control programs to allow Operator programmable target-alarms to manage batching tasks.
  • Provide first-out and sequence-of-events reporting.
