Failure to follow established standard operating procedures continues to be the single most repeated cause for process safety incidents.Academic research points to cognitive decision-making disconnect between executing the procedure manually and the level of automation applied to the process. Computer augmentation of written procedures, mobile-enables with real-time links to a process control system, is a missing capability which could error-proof manually executed tasks. We will explore advances in platform-neutral computer technology, including breakthroughs such as augmented reality, which could provide cost-effective alternatives to the traditional hardwired approach to deterministic automation solutions to reduce human fact errors.
