I used scripts and ICC driver task to do the initial alarm configuration 
too, for a number of reasons:

1. I can control/monitor/limit what's going on more effectively.

2. The machine running PSS at our site is not under my control and lives 
in a different building. I don't want it writing to my control system at 

3. We ended up doing some things with the alarming that required me to 
post-process the PSS data.

4. I don't have any OPC server on my systems. :)

Because of item 2 above, if we ever do enforcement, I'll probably have an 
AW-resident program running to do that, too. If we don't change 3 (I'm 
giving it some time to see how it all works out), we'll use the on-system 
approach for auditing as well.

Thanks Alex.
I understand that Invensys also supplies Alarm Management System using PAS 
systems. Is the OPC  method generally adopted by Invensys to make CP 
database change? In one of my earlier AMS  projects (not with PAS), I used 
 ICC driver task to make bulk changes to CP.
