Risk Based Inspection (RBI) - The Current State

Part 1

By Greg Alvarado at Inspectioneering Journal. This article appears in the September/October 1999 issue of Inspectioneering Journal

There are many analysis tools available in the market that lay hold of the “RBI” claim. I wanted to bring you, the reader, “up to speed” on some of the available technology based on my experience as an RBI project manager, client manager and member of the American Petroleum Institute committee and working group compiling the RBI Recommended Practice 580.

I will cover implementation and success issues, too. These experiences have been garnered in both the refining and chemical industries. I hope this will help you choose the technology that is best suited for your organization and help you develop robust integrated work processes. There are some practitioners who have invested the time and money to perform RBI analyses that aren’t using the output or aren’t using it to their maximum advantage. Hopefully, these articles will provide insight for better innovation of the technology.
