Professional Engineers and Errors in INFI 90 Systems
I recently had a discussion with another professional engineer that made me realize that I might be too rabid in my perspective on the errors DBDOC finds in INFI 90 systems. We know some are significant and could cost money or worse under certain circumstances. However, getting the attention of many DCS specialists with responsibility for systems with errors is really tough.
Does this hold for professional engineers? The point was made to me that, if your job is improving the control strategy, and you use DBDOC to understand the process, you still do not have a moral or professional obligation to tell the system owner about errors you run across.
What do you people think? Should a professional keep quiet about errors that he or she discovers because the job is not to tell the systerm owners about errors? Alternatively, is it a mark of profound disrespect for the DCS specialists to assume they do not want to know about errors that are there?
Does the above only apply to professional engineers? You are DCS experts - do you want to know about errors? Do you want the people that pay you to know about them, even if they did not ask?
