Hazardex 2017 Conference - FSA4: Evaluation of Safety Instrumented Functions During the Operating & Maintenance Phase
04 November 2016
A discussion of practicable approaches to the evaluation of failure rates for SIF equipment, the management of equipment approaching the end of useful life and the monitoring of leading indicators that can be used to identify significant departures from expected SIF performance.
The approaches outlined are designed to be relatively straightforward in recognition that any burdensome data gathering and processing technique is unlikely to offer the robustness that will allow confidence in long term use.
