Risk Based Strategies for Inspection & Maintenance

Start Date: 10 Dec 2023
End Date: 14 Dec 2023
Duration: 5
Country: Istanboul / Turkey
Category: Engineering and Technical Programs

Course Description

Systematic risk-based inspection can assess the likelihood and potential consequences of the failure of pressure equipment. Risk-based inspection provides an opportunity for companies to prioritize inspection equipment; improve methods of inspection,frequency resources,develop specific plans inspection equipment, and enable the implementation of reliability centered maintenance. This results in improved safety and less risk of failure , forced shutdowns, and reduce operational costs

Course Objectives

·         understanding of the key aspects of Risk Based Inspection, its advantages and limitations

·         understanding of how it is linked to reliability-centered maintenance

·         Understand how fitness-for-service assessment affects the Risk

·         Provide you with the practical and effective methods you need to perform practical likelihood and consequence analysis

·         Learning how to develop optimum Inspection intervals for individual equipment based on the assessment of the active degradation
