Levels of severity can help an application's users prioritize their work, especially if the application can display many alarms at the same time. Table 19 lists the standard levels of severity for alarms.
Provide only the levels of severity in Table 19. Of those levels, provide only the ones that your application's users will need.
When displaying or logging an alarm, indicate its severity.
