PDO's Five Keys to Improve Business Operations: • Improve the capacity and capability of the Omani people and businesses to secure commercial and sustainable benefits for their country • Reduce operational costs • Increase operational efficiency • Avoid unnecessary asset integrity process safety incidents • Enhance cybersecurity to protect operational assets How PDO Used Hexagon Solutions The ISA/IEC standard in alarm management was first released in 2009. Around the same time, official reports on several industrial incidents noted the lack of alarm management as a contributing factor for the incidents. The industry was gaining a greater appreciation of the necessity of alarm management solutions. With this emerging awareness and its own alarm situation in mind, PDO began its alarm management journey with PAS AlarmManagement 1 in 2010.
