Instrument Asset Management Systems (IAMS)

Scope
This Saudi Aramco Engineering Standard (SAES) establishes the minimum engineering
requirements for proper design, commissioning, and documentation of Instrument Asset
Management Systems (IAMS) installations to be used within Saudi Aramcos facilities.

Conflicts and Deviations


2.1

Any conflicts between this Standard and other applicable Saudi Aramco
Engineering Standards (SAESs), Saudi Aramco Materials System Specifications
(SAMSSs), Saudi Aramco Standard Drawings (SASDs), or industry standards,
codes, and forms shall be resolved in writing by the Company or Buyer
Representative through the Manager, Process & Control Systems Department of
Saudi Aramco, Dhahran.

2.2

Direct all requests to deviate from this Standard in writing to the Company or
Buyer Representative, who shall follow internal company procedure SAEP-302
and forward such requests to the Manager, Process & Control Systems
Department of Saudi Aramco, Dhahran.

References
The selection of material, equipment, design, construction, maintenance, and repair of
equipment and facilities covered by this procedure should comply with the latest edition
of the references listed below, unless otherwise noted.

Definitions of Important Terms


Highway Addressable Remote Transducer (HART): A protocol that uses
Frequency Shift Keng (FSK) technology to modulate and transmit its
bidirectional superimposed digital signal. The digital signal is superimposed on
the 4-20 mA DC current loop in a client-server mode.
Instrument Asset Management System (IAMS): A system composed of
interface modules, a single or multiple PCs, software options, and selected
add-on applications to help maintain/troubleshoot instruments and increase their
availability through device diagnostics.
Life Cycle Cost: Total initial construction cost of the system plus the cost of
operation, testing, inspection, maintenance, administration, etc., through the
expected life of the system.
Proponent: The end-user.

Design
5.1

General
5.1.1

The Instrument Asset Management System (IAMS) shall automatically


and continuously monitor the status, events and operating conditions of
the field-connected devices to provide an efficient condition-based
maintenance solution without interfering with the plant control system.

5.1.2

Smart (HART) field devices shall only be connected to the IAMS system
through HART interface cards. The use of HART multiplexers shall
only be used with systems that do not offer HART enabled I/O.

Commentary Note:
Applications where HART multiplexers may be used include Emergency
ESD and CCS applications.

5.2

5.1.3

IAMS system architecture shall be to have one client station in each PIB
while the main server resides in the Engineering Room inside the Central
Control Room (CCR).

5.1.4

All field instruments diagnostic information shall be available at each


IAMS client station.

5.1.5

Configuration shall be possible at any client workstation with proper


password protection.

5.1.6

Changes at IAMS shall be avoided unless the change is approved thru an


MOC process.

5.1.7

Device diagnostics shall be set in accordance with NAMUR NE-107.

5.1.8

Changes downloaded from IAMS into field instruments shall also be


performed in the DCS.

5.1.9

IAMS systems shall comply with all requirements in 34-SAMSS-911.

Smart ZV Monitoring System (SZVMS)


5.2.1

Testing shall be recorded to enable compliance with the requirements of


statutory authority and for meeting the required test intervals specified in
SAEP-250.

5.2.2

Diagnostic data from the ZV integrated local control station shall be


integrated with the SZVMS as per 34-SAMSS-634.

Project Phase Requirements


6.1

IAMS data flow from field devices to client and server stations shall be
documented as part of the deliverables.

6.2

During the Factory Acceptance Test (FAT), one device from each type from
each vendor shall be tested to ensure accessibility to device configuration,
calibration, diagnostics and documentation.

6.3

A brief report shall be provided to show what was tested and whether the results
were successful or not.

6.4

For all valves with Fieldbus and/or HART positioners, valve diagnostic tests
(i.e., signature curves, dynamic error band, drive signal, output signal, sticky
valve and step response) shall be loaded into the IAMS database and verified
during Site Acceptance Testing (SAT).

6.5

The IAMS system shall be installed, commissioned and put into operation
before the precommissioning for the field instruments starts. As a minimum,
the following tasks shall be done to achieve this state:
6.5.1

The IAMS database shall be fully populated with the latest device data
for every fieldbus and/or HART device on the project.

6.5.2

The following device diagnostic alarms shall be set as minimum:


1.

control valve cycle counter,

2.

air supply depletion, and

3.

friction band.

For smart ZVs, the partial stroke test reminder shall be set.

6.6

6.5.3

Attach or associate the applicable Instrument Specification Sheet (ISS)


to each device.

6.5.4

Attach or associate the applicable Instrument Segment Diagram (ISD) or


Instrument Loop Diagram (ILD) to each device.

6.5.5

Obtain approval in writing from the Proponent Representative that the


IAMS is fully commissioned and operational.

Training
A Formal vendor training shall be given to key plant personnel to raise
confidence and expertise level. Each plant shall then appoint an IAMS
champion who will have ownership of the system and be the focal point for
IAMS activities.
