    Construction of a diagnostic system means a large modeling and knowledge acquisition effort. In many cases, the resulting system can carry out high quality diagnosis, but only until changes are made to process structure, chemistry, or operating practices. An alternative approach is to construct a system for disturbance management and diagnosis using such information which is already available. KRM is an information system for chemical process risk management developed in a joint Scandinavian project. The idea is to make the results of safety analyses available to operating personnel and keep this information up-to-date with safety analysis and disturbance reporting tools which are used as part of the daily routines at the plant.
