SLM is the next generation in Safety Lifecycle Management. Our comprehensive software platform is the culmination of decades of experience in process safety and safety instrumented systems. The software was designed by PSM and SIS Subject Matter Experts and Engineers to ensure the successful implementation of safety and integrity management processes and standards.
SLM is the next generation in Process Safety and SIS Lifecycle Management software. Leveraging our experience since 1999, we recognized that the legacy software tools available on the market were more tactical in their approach, tackling one specific compliance process vs. a strategic and holistic solution. This caused us to purchase multiple licenses, jump from software to software and then transfer all the data into an internal database. After much frustration, we developed a vision for a new software product that would incorporate good engineering practices, compliance requirements and the multitude of tools on the market, and combine them into one platform residing on the cloud. The result was SLM, designed by MSS and Mangan, Inc. PSM and SIS Subject Matter Experts to ensure our clients had a plant-ready software product that would re-engineer how they executed PSM and SIS Lifecycle Management.
SAFETY LIFECYCLE MANAGEMENT
Over the course of the last 25 years, software technology and process safety management systems have grown and matured. From paper processes and filing cabinets to spreadsheets stored in web enabled document management systems, the nature of the way we use and access information about process safety has evolved. Even with these advances, managing the safety lifecycle is not easy for the below reasons:
- Safety Lifecycle Scope is Often Not Understood
- Vague Regulations and Best Practices
- Data is Fragmented and Often Incomplete
- Data is Not Shared
- Tool and System Overload to Manage the Entire Lifecycle
- Lack of Dedicated Resources
SLM is an integrated software platform designed to facilitate Process Safety and Safety Instrumented Systems Lifecycle Management. The SLM software suite covers the entire SIS Lifecycle, providing automated and standardized workflows coupled with a unified data repository to achieve best practices and save time and money. Real-time risk monitoring and risk assessment tools integrated with built-in compliance and conformance features aid in identifying risk gaps, ensuring risk reduction strategies are effective and timely.
