Risk Based Inspection (RBI) Program  

Risk-based Inspection (RBI) is a decision making technique for inspection planning based on risk – comprising the consequence of failure (CoF) and probability of failure (PoF). It is a formal approach designed to aid the development of optimised inspection, and recommendations for monitoring and testing plans for production systems. It provides focus for inspection activity, to address explicitly the threats to the integrity of the asset and its capability to generate revenue through production.

PSRAM Consulting provides the expertise to develop, implement and sustain an RBI program in accordance with API 580, to help clients achieve safe and reliable operations for their assets. 

PSRAM will deliver an RBI program that will:

  • Assess the criticality of the equipment and components - WHY to inspect

  • Priortizes high risk equipments and components - WHAT to inspect

  • Determine inspection intervals - WHEN to inspect

  • Identify expected damage mechanisms based on asset class and service - WHERE to inspect

  • Define best inspection method - HOW to inspect

  • Enable data collection for continous improvement
