Asset Integrity Management Systems (AIMS) is defined as the ability of an asset to perform its necessary functions efficiently and effectively while protecting health, safety and the environment, and the means of guaranteeing that the people, processes, systems and resources that deliver integrity are in place, in use and will perform well when needed over the whole life cycle of the asset.
KPB’s multidisciplinary panel of safety management experts can effectively audit and optimize the existing safety configurations of your asset to ensure productivity, reliability and security.
Asset Integrity involves 4 major processes, including:
Risk Based Inspection (RBI)
- Risk Based Inspection (RBI)
- Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM)
- Safety Integrity Level (SIL)
- Reliability, Availability and Maintainability (RAM)
Risk-based Inspection is a type of maintenance business process used to analyze equipment, including pressure vessels, heat exchangers and piping in industrial plants. It is a decision-making technique to optimize inspection plans.
Led by industry experts, including senior consultants and engineers, KPB’s unparalleled Risk-Based Inspection programs feature a total quality assurance approach, resulting in substantial cost savings for the oil and gas industry.
Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM)
Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) is a unique corporate-level maintenance methodology that is executed to optimize the maintenance system of an organization or facility. Successful application of RCM can enhance reliability, cost-effectiveness, machine uptime, and a higher understanding of the level of risk that the business is managing.
At KPB, our RCM specialists apply rigorous and systematic methods in determining the appropriate maintenance tasks to address each of the identified failure modes and their consequences.
Safety Integrity Level (SIL)
Safety Integrity Level (SIL) is described as a comparative level of risk-reduction offered by a safety function, or an analysis of performance required for a Safety Instrumented Function (SIF) to maintain or achieve the safety state.
In essence, Safety Integrity Level analysis is an estimation of performance recommended for a Safety Instrumented Function (SIF).
Overall, the Safety Integrity Level analysis involved 3 steps , namely, SIL Assessment / Classification, SIL Verification in line with Safety Requirement Specification and SIL Validation.
Reliability, Availability and Maintainability (RAM)
Reliability, Maintainability and Availability (RAM) are three critical system features that have considerable influence on the sustainment or total Life Cycle Costs (LCC) of an asset. The ultimate aim of a RAM study is to manage assets which run the system with minimal cost and maximum efﬁciency.
In short, our exceptional Asset Integrity Services help our clients accomplish longer run time, reduced downtime, and enhanced mechanical integrity.
