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.

The risk-based approach needs:

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

Objectives

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

Training Methodology

This GLOMACS Risk Based Strategies for Inspection & Maintenance (RBI & RBM) training course combines presentation of the key principles, methods, and best practices and enforces the learnings with case studies and Question & Answer workshops to maximize the benefits to the participants. The comprehensive course notes and presentation material will provide valuable reference.
