SINGAPORE, April 29, 2022 – HIMA, a global leader in safety-related automation solutions, announces a global partnership with Mangan Software Solutions (MSS), a leading safety lifecycle management software provider. HIMA’s Mangan s Safety Lifecycle Manager (SLM ) software powers a cloud-based platform which offers comprehensive functional safety digitalization.
We are particularly privileged to partner with Mangan Software Solutions (MSS), whose digitization solution closes the loop on the safety automation lifecycle. Our customers will now have the evidence that demonstrates that they effectively manage risk at the minimal operational expense and capital expenditure, and will be provided with targeted advice on how to better manage functional safety within their enterprise. I am confident that HIMA and MS’s collaborations will help to optimize the safety of our industry throughout the world, taking into account our installed base and also for the purpose of attracting new customers says Jörg de la Motte, CEO at HIMA.
Process Safety and Functional Safety is more than hardware, software, testing, and metrics. Taking an overall approach and also combining a safety culture requires an entire life-cycle management system, which is dependent on digitalized life-cycle management, from the initial Hazard Analysis stage through Operations & Maintenance to decommission.
HIMA’s Safety Lifecycle Manager (SLM) provides a holistic digital safety management solution. Safety-related data, input into all stages of the functional safety lifecycle by disparate sources, is collated into one, relational platform. This makes it easier for the customer to continually operate according to security guidelines throughout the facility, the entire business, or a single department. This also gives the customer the capability for being able to demonstrate proof of the custom’s continuous compliance with the relevant requirements for functional security.
This program is aimed at providing key performance indicators and reports, giving unparalleled visibility into the process risk control procedures and their effectiveness.
Steve Whiteside, president of MSS, stated that the HIMA experts and the best-in-class SLM platform for process safety and functional safety will change the way industry does business. We are proud to be a key component of HIMA’s Lifecycle Services and the Lifecycle Management Solution, which will be the foundation of digitalization safety strategies for numerous companies throughout the world.
