Risk based inspection analysis

ReliaSoft RBI facilitates risk based inspection (RBI) analysis for oil & gas, chemical and power plants in adherence to the principles and guidelines presented in the American Petroleum Institute's recommendations in the API RP 580 and RP 581 publications, as well as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers’ recommendations in the ASME PCC-3-2007 publication. 

ReliaSoft RBI provides all the tools you need to manage RBI, RCM, FMEA and related analyses for all of your plant assets. Full-featured Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) and FMEA / FMECA functionality is also included.

  • Facilitates Risk Based Inspection (RBI) analysis according to latest guidelines and publications.
  • Includes full-featured RCM and FMEA.
  • Intelligent integration and multi user access enables you to build and manage knowledge base within your organization.
  • Provides flexible reports, queries and dashboards to present analysis results in the most effective ways.
  • Rank assets using a customizable qualitative risk discovery rating system, and then use a quantitative analysis based on industry standards to predict the risk for selected assets.
  • Develop an inspection schedule that optimizes inspection time and cost while maintaining acceptable risk based on the recommended inspection types and inspection date for each asset.
  • Use Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) techniques to develop scheduled maintenance plans that will provide an acceptable level of functionality, with an acceptable level of risk, in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

RBI provides intelligent integration between reliability program activities and tools, while simultaneously facilitating effective information sharing and cooperation between engineering teams of any size. The software allows you to:

  • Use models from analyses performed in other applications to set the reliability/maintenance characteristics of the items and failure modes you're analyzing in Xfmea/RCM++/RBI.
  • Work with the same failure modes and reliability analysis (FMRA) in both XFMEA/RCM++/RBI and BlockSim. This allows you to take advantage of the more advanced system modeling capabilities in BlockSim without having to update and maintain two separate analyses.
  • Use FMEA data to build fault trees in BlockSim.
  • Share system configuration and failure mode data between XFRACAS and XFMEA/RCM++/RBI, with the ability to resynchronize on an ongoing basis.
  • Copy any system from an MPC systems and powerplant analysis into the more flexible XFMEA/RCM++/RBI system hierarchy in the same project.

Product Features

Quick qualitative risk assessment

You can configure the risk discovery ratings feature to provide a quick qualitative RBI analysis that can save time and effort by estimating an asset's importance in terms of risk. By doing this quick assessment, you can focus your limited resources (both time and money) on those assets that pose the greatest risk, both physically and financially.
