Operation Overview

The CIMPLICITY Alarm Manager Resident Process (AMRP) is responsible for maintaining a centralized database of current alarms. Users may view and act on these alarms with the Alarm Viewer or an Alarm Viewer control embedded in a CimView screen.

These standard viewers:

Display alarms sorted by various criteria.

Filter alarms by time, alarm class, alarm state, and resource.

Allow a user to acknowledge, delete, and comment on alarms.

In addition, sets of sorting and filtering preferences can be created, saved, loaded, and edited. The Alarm Viewer API (AMV API) allows a process engineer or system integrator to develop full-featured custom alarm viewers to meet special needs.
