Risk Based Inspection (RBI)

Risk Based Inspection (RBI) combines the likelihood of failure due to degradation with the consequence, informing the choice of inspection intervals and methods.

RBI can be used to confidently extend inspection intervals and to target inspection methods at the right damage mechanisms, that carry the most risk.

RBI is most effective when inspection intervals are reviewed based on actual equipment deterioratation. Due to the very large volume of data, business intelligence solutions form an important part of the review process.
