Information visualization is defined as follow (UIUC DCI, 1998): a method of presenting data or information in non-traditional and interactive graphical forms. These visualizations can show the structure of information by using 2-D or 3-D color graphics and animations. It also allows one to navigate through it, and modify it with graphical interactions. [1] The end-users will communicate with the data in a more visualized manner and when data representation is understandable by end-users, it would lead to a better decision making. By applying visual representation in managing alarm system in the oil refmery, it would assist the high-level users in the management site to better visualized the alarms events and thus make better decision when it comes to the occurrence of abnormal situations. As the occurrence of abnormal situations would lead to triggering the alarms, this indicates that there must be action taken to resolve the issue. If no appropriate action being taken, it would cost money and endanger life. To be even worse, it might cause the plant to be shut down. Thus, the use of visual representation and data simulation would be one of the ways to resolve the problems. The objective of the project is to visualize the data in making it more understandable in the view of the endusers that dealing with the alarm system. To carry out this project, a visit to Petronas Penapisan Melaka Sdn Berhad (PPMSB) was done to understand the overview of how alarm management system works. Then a set of sample data was generated. The set of data would then be verified by the experts. This set of data would be simulated using a tool namely Context Free Art. The project would be focusing on only one unit, called the Crude Distillation Unit (CDU). Basically, the project mainly involving the collection of data, analyzing them and then visualizing them in a way that makes it easy for the endusers to refer to them.
