  • RAM Analysis - The Objective and Methodology of Reliability, Availability and Maintainability Analysis.

    SERVICES Reliability, Availability and Maintainability (RAM) Analysis Objective of RAM Analysis: Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability (RAM) are system design attributes that can have a substantial impact on the lifecycle cost and performance of an engineered system. The purpose of RAM Analysis is to ensure high production performance while maintaining high safety and quality level in any given industrial operation. The objective of the RAM analysis is to provide decision support towards i.e.: Predicted production performance and project economics; Key production loss contributors; Maintenance strategy and spare part philosophy; Alternative technical or operational solutions (sensitivity studies); Main uncertainties related to production performance; Recommendations for improved production performance. Methodology for RAM Studies: At its core, RAM studies entail representing a complex reality with a simplified model allowing for various types of analyses. Such a model can be used to predict performance and manage uncertainties. Results from the analyses should be used to give sound and unbiased decision support, as well as identify bottlenecks and main contributors to reduced performance and/or increased risk. 1.Establish study basis Identification of key assumptions and associated degrees of uncertainty is considered vital in order to effectively produce as realistic and accurate results as possible, and for giving input to sensitivity analyses that might be necessary to cater for uncertainties. The key assumptions will be documented in the RAM model study basis. Assumptions are typically categorized in technical, operational and analytical assumptions. Close cooperation with different disciplines in the project is necessary to ensure an understanding of the process and operation that results in a robust and realistic basis for the RAM model. Because of this, it is proposed to arrange for a work meeting or similar with relevant disciplines when establishing the RAM model study basis. 2.Required Input A good understanding of the system to be analysed is important for the RAM analysis to obtain as accurate results as possible. Typical client input for RAM analyses include: System description; System schematics; P&IDs; Operational Philosophy. In addition to the above, one of the main premises for performing a successful RAM analysis is the use of appropriate reliability data. Application of data from literature and databases should always be thoroughly evaluated, to validate their relevance for the context in question. Reliability data sources include client experience data, OREDA and the PDS handbook. ORS has access to a wide range of reliability data sources. A Failure Mode, Effect and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) if available is also a good input for the RAM analysis, especially for complex systems to give an accurate basis for system modelling. 3.Establish RAM model and run simulations The RAM model study basis is used to establish the RAM model, typically represented by reliability block diagrams (RBDs). The Monte Carlo method is normally used for the RAM model simulations to produce uncertainty ranges and confidence levels for the estimates. ORS uses the software Miriam RAM Studio for this purpose. 4.Analyse the results The results from the simulation are analysed and reported depending on the objective of the RAM study in the best way to create value to the client, ,with some examples shown below.

  • System Reliability and Availability — ORS Consulting

    SERVICES ​System Reliability and Availability Up Anchor 1 Reliability is a staple in most businesses. It is the probability that a component, part, system, or process performs correctly within a specified period. A reliable system is one that will function appropriately with a minimum need for maintenance or repair Most systems in facilities constitute interconnected components, with each component playing its role and helping to achieve a performance level. A system reliability assessment allows businesses to identify weaknesses of these components and quantify the impact of their failures on the overall system or process. ORS is a leading system reliability solutions provider. We are helping businesses and facilities with a wide range of services, including uptime and availability assessments, Fault Tree Modelling, among others. ​System Reliability and Availability Related Studies FMEA/FMECA FMEA (Failure Modes and Effect Analysis) and FMECA (Failure Modes Effects and Critical Analysis) are methodologies used to determine potential failure modes in a system and provide corrective measures for each failure mode. FMECA is similar to FMEA with regard to risk assessment and failure analysis. However, in addition to FMEA functionalities, FMECA ranks failure modes in order of severity. RAM Analysis RAM analysis is a method to define the production capacity and availability of a system to keep producing. This analysis involves a mapping of the different failure modes, frequencies, consequences, and their effect on production. RAM Analysis helps to reduce costs, debottleneck and provide input to spare parts and maintenance planning. Learn more > Production Assurance Production assurance describes the certainty of a facility achieving its production goals and meeting its intended end-results. End results may be customer expectations, the safety of a production process, or reduced production costs. Production assurance is particularly important within systems associated with oil and gas exploration and is introduced in ISO 20815:2008 standard. Fault Tree Modeling Fault Tree Modeling is a methodology used for conducting reliability analyses of complex systems. It involves creating a logical representation to model chains or pathways that can lead to failure or an undesirable loss event. It helps to keep systems safe and in desirable operating conditions. System Safety System safety is a risk management methodology that involves the identification and analysis of different hazards in a system, process, or facility. It also involves the provision of measures to eliminate or mitigate the effect of these risks. Among others, system safety is widely applied in the defence industry.

  • (HAZOP) Hazard and Operability Analysis

    SERVICES Hazard and Operability Analysis (HAZOP) What is a HAZOP Study? Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) is the most widely used Process Hazard Analysis (PHA) technique. It provides a way of systematically identifying causes of deviations from a process design intention, which in turn reveals potential hazardous scenarios and allows understanding of them and how to prevent them from occurring. HAZOP studies are performed as multi-disciplinary brainstorming workshops. Why perform HAZOP Do you need a structured and detailed review of your process design to identify and manage process-related hazards? Then HAZOP is the optimal hazard analysis methodology. HAZOP studies are performed to: Methodically examine processes and operating systems to identify how they might deviate from the design intent; Prevent process-related accidents and incidents by evaluating process design with regards to safety (of people, the environment, or assets) and operability; Identify deviations from related standards and project requirements; Identify requirements for additional risk-reduction HAZOP studies are also great tools for the team to gain a higher understanding of the process and the available process safety documentation. HAZOP Study Methodology HAZOP studies are conducted as structured and multi-disciplinary brainstorming workshops to identify process-related hazards and operability issues, evaluate their consequences, and assess whether adequate safeguards are in place to prevent or control these hazardous scenarios. The HAZOP technique is based on the systematic use of process deviations composed of a combination of guidewords and process parameters. Examples of HAZOP study guidewords, parameters, and the corresponding deviations are shown below: Benefits of a HAZOP Study: The structured nature of the analysis ensures that hazards and operability concerns are identified and recorded in a thorough and systematic way. By applying guidewords meant for brainstorming the methodology allows for a consistent approach and ensures that all relevant aspects are considered and discussed. A well-conducted HAZOP serves as a robust foundation for further analyses and decision-making, including being the foundational block for Functional Safety. ORS Consulting has extensive experience with facilitating and recording HAZOP studies. Our principal consultants have extensive HAZOP experience for a wide variety of industrial applications. ORS combines technical knowledge and process know-how with experience and up-to-date competence related to relevant regulations and best practices (such as IEC 61882).

  • Environmental Risk Assessment (ENVID) - ORS Consulting

    SERVICES Environmental Risk Assessment (ENVID) What is ENVID? Environmental Impact Identification (ENVID) is a structured examination of environmental aspects for a facility for early identification of environmental concerns that may affect environment. The outcome of an ENVID is used to optimize the design and operational philosophy to minimize environmental impact. An ENVID is typically performed as a multi-discipline workshop. Why perform an ENVID: ENVID study is performed to; Identify acute or continuous sources of emission, discharge and waste for an asset or activity; Identify mitigating measures included in design to minimize environmental impact; Propose further mitigating measures to prevent, reduce or control identified sources of emission, discharge and waste; ENVID Study Methodology The ENVID study is carried out as a multidisciplinary workshop with participants from relevant disciplines and operational personnel. The workshop comprises of discussion of environmental hazards consequences, and typically including a coarse risk assessment for each hazard raised, practice and procedures and barrier elements (the corresponding control and mitigation measures). The ENVID review follows a methodology analogous to a Hazard Identification (HAZID) . The ENVID applies a set of guidewords suitable for identification of hazards and sources of emission, discharge and waste. Some examples of ENVID parameters and guidewords: Contact ORS Consulti ng to identify the potential environmental risks associated with your project.
