Research from Kairos presented at ESREL and SAFEPROCESS conferences

By Ivan Rott on 22/09/22 11:23

Kairos' research team and our collaboration partners have provided several important research publications this summer. Functional modelling technology (by means of Multilevel Flow Modelling) and developed tools reason about the relation between cause and consequence in complex systems. Using the data from SCADA/control systems, guidance is provided to help the operator on root causes and how to mitigate them. 

 

Kairos internship fellow Mohammad Bakhshandeh presented his latest study paper at the ESREL-conference in Ireland. Mohammad is currently completing his Ph.D at University of Stavanger. His research address advanced situation awareness, Human Vigilance, and Sensitivity in complex and dynamic Industrial systems. When modern industrial systems are subjected to complex operating conditions, they generate higher potentials for a wide range of abnormalities, deviations, rare events, and incessant changes. Ad-SA based on enhanced human vigilance and sensitivity is gradually becoming a critical need to ensure high-resilience of such systems and contexts. Mohammad´s publication is available here.

 

The ESREL 2022 (32nd European Safety and Reliability Conference) was held between 28th of August - 1st of September 2022 at Dublin, Ireland with five days of intense exchange on scientific research and industry practices on the various themes and areas, underpinning this year title: “Understanding and Managing Risk and Reliability for a Sustainable Future”.

 

Secondly, our research team in Denmark, in close collaboration with Danish Technical University and University of Le-Harvre, Normandie, France, opened up for new improved fault diagnostics opportunities, with Kairos functional modelling technology, used for complex and hazardous plant production systems. Current tools have a limitation, namely that the timing aspect of the propagation to consequences is not considered. The presented research proposes a method to develop a timed causal analysis that will use timing information to filter the sequence of alarms in the SCADA/control systems to help operators assess the development of alarms in case of a critical event. The publication is available online here.

 

The SAFEPROCESS symposium is a major international gathering of leading exerts in the academia and industry from all over the world. It aims at strengthening the contact between academia and industry to build new networks and cultivate existing relations. SAFEPROCESS is organised every three years by IFAC.

Webinar: How to solve alarm challenges in the control room

By Ivan Rott on 09/02/21 08:53

Join our webinars to learn how new technology supports control room operators in the daily plant operations.

What if we could build in every operators' work-experiences and knowledge into a software that combines expertise with an instant analysis, view of the plant process state, and behavior, would that be helpful?

In this webinar, Bjarne André Asheim (CEO, Kairos Technology) and Ivan Rott (Sales manager, Kairos Technology) will discuss how our software combines experience from different control room operators and uses this knowledge to investigate root causes, consequences, and suggest counteraction steps for process plant upsets and incidents. With this tool, you will be assisted and guided, while keeping full control and making your own final decision of actions.

Kairos Scenario Maker is now available

By Ivan Rott on 25/08/20 09:08

To be able to run good workshops with our clients during the restrictions of Covid-19, we have developed Kairos Scenario Maker for testing process models built for Kairos - Control Room Assistant.

With our new tool, it is easy introduce different hypothetical errors to demonstrate and test how the fault propagates through the plant process. A live session with the tool will also provide better understanding of how Kairos can assist your production to safer operation and higher efficiency.

We can also, from historic data, test how plant trips could have been avoided, as well as letting you train your operation team on plant behaviors. The tool helps demonstrate how the causal reasoning works, which is important to ensure that the artificial intelligence becomes explainable.

By using Kairos Scenario Maker User Interface, observations (sensor status) are selected for scenarios chosen to be tested, by simply assigning values outside their limits to see and understand how the AI reasoning works.
