  abstract     = {{In the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS), finding the source of an interlock signal has become increasingly unmanageable due to the complex interdependencies between the agents in both the beam interlock system (BIS) and the software interlock system (SIS). This often leads to delays, with the inefficiency in diagnosing beam stops impacting the overall performance of the accelerator. The Interlock Super Agent (ISA) was introduced to address this challenge. It traces the interlocks responsible for beam stops, regardless of whether they originated in BIS or SIS. By providing a better understanding of interdependencies, ISA significantly improves machine efficiency by reducing time for diagnosis and by documenting such events through platforms such as the Accelerator Fault Tracking system. The paper will discuss the practical implementation of ISA and its potential application throughout the CERN accelerator complex. }},
