Infographic: 11 Things to Consider When Selecting RBI Software

June 25, 2019

In an ever-evolving industry, corporations now have the flexibility to choose Risk-Based Inspection software from vendors offering a variety of tools and features to keep track of calculations, records, and data. While calculations involved in the RBI processes can be done manually, it isn't as feasible when considering the high volume of assets within a typical facility.

The question then becomes: How do I select an RBI software? While the majority of RBI software available in today's market claims to be in compliance with codes such as API RP 580/581, this doesn't mean some software doesn't outperform others in terms of capabilities. With many things to take into account, it's important that a thorough technical evaluation is performed by experienced team members. Here are 11 things you should consider when selecting the best RBI software for your needs. 

Information from this infographic originally appeared in the article "Roadmap for Effective Risk-Based Inspection Implementation" written by Asad Ali and Houssam Sabry from ADNOC LNG and appeared in the January/February 2019 issue of Inspectioneering Journal.
