Risk Based Strategies for Inspection & Maintenance


Introduction:

Risk-Based Inspection (RBI) methodology enables the assessment of the likelihood and potential consequences of pressure equipment failures. RBI provides companies the opportunity to prioritize their equipment for inspection; optimize inspection methods, frequencies, and resources; develop specific equipment inspection plans; and enable the implementation of Reliability Centered Maintenance. This results in improved safety, lower failure risks, fewer forced shutdowns, and reduced operational costs

Targeted Groups:

  • Operations Engineers
  • Maintenance Engineers
  • Engineering Managers and Supervisors
  • Technical Staff with responsibilities for inspection, maintenance, assessment and mitigation of plant equipment degradation, and who want to use RBI effectively in their plants

Course Objectives:

At the end of this course the participants will be able to:

  • Provide a clear understanding of the key aspects of Risk-Based Inspection, its advantages and limitations
  • Provide a clear understanding of how it is linked to reliability-centered maintenance
  • Understand how fitness-for-service assessment affects the Risk
  • Show how to develop a successful RBI program at your facility
  • Gain practical and effective methods they need to perform practical likelihood and consequence analysis
  • Develop optimum Inspection intervals for individual equipment based on the assessment of the active degradation mechanisms

Targeted Competencies:

  • Being multi-disciplined
  • Realistically applicable to plant integrity
  • Designing with future scenarios in mind
  • Consideration of all potential degradation mechanisms
  • Understanding of the risks involved
  • Awareness of Fitness for Service assessment techniques
