Asset Integrity and Reliability

Asset integrity, the RBPS element that helps ensure the equipment is properly designed, installed in accordance with specifications, and remains fit for use until it is retired, is one of the nine elements in the RBPS pillar of managing risk.  In an Introduction to Asset Integrity and Reliability, the attributes of a risk-based management system for ensuring the integrity and reliability of critical equipment and safety systems are described.

For more information on managing risk, read CCPS' Guidelines books.

CCPS' Process Equipment Reliability Database (PERD) is aimed at providing data to help effectively and efficiently implement an asset integrity and reliability program.
