SILAlarm is a tool for facilitating the alarm rationalization process and documenting the results in a master alarm database.

Developed in accordance with the ISA- 18.2 standard and the EEMUA 191 guideline, it can be used by novices and experts alike to comply with alarm management good engineering practices.
