RELIABILITY & AVAILABILITY ENGINEERING

Reliability and availability engineering is all about performance and long-term cost management. A well-designed reliability and availability plan ensures your equipment always performs at its optimum level and that unnecessary downtime is consistently avoided. Achieving optimum production and minimising downtime, maximises your profit margins and limits the scope for risk. Any organisation that is concerned with realising its potential and becoming a market leader should make safety risk and reliability engineering a priority.
 
We provide reliability engineering for new projects and existing facilities across a wide range of industries including oil and gas, petrochemical, chemical, mining and tourism. Contact us today to find out more.

Site reliability engineering

 

Site reliability engineering is a pivotal part of risk assessment and management that relies on software engineering in order to resolve IT operations issues. Our primary focus is to create software systems that can be relied upon for the duration of your project and can be scaled according to the requirements of the project too.

 

Reliability & availability engineering

 

We work with our clients to provide independent advice on how to best optimise both small and large-scale operations, while also offering a suite of standard reliability and availability services as follows:

 

  • Reliability, Availability & Maintainability (RAM) Studies

  • Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM) and Planning

  • Human Error Assessment

  • Strategies for Equipment Redundancy and Sparing

  • Cost-Benefit Studies

  • Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Assessment

  • Failure Mode, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA)

  • Reliability Block Diagrams (RBDs) and Fault Tree Analysis (FTA)

  • Fire and explosion modelling

  • Gas dispersion modelling

 

What you should expect from reliability engineering

 

The role of a reliability engineer is invaluable and as such, you should always make sure that your chosen service provider is able to deliver because they are required to reduce the likelihood of risks that could cause adverse effects in your operations occurring. This role involves the following:

 

Incident investigation

 

Paying attention to detail to find the root cause of an incident is the crux of incident investigation. It allows us to map the best way forward to ensure it does not happen again by taking precise corrective action.

 

Loss elimination

 

Losses can and most likely occur at one point or another during operations but by no means should this become the status quo. Reliability engineering also exists to identify, track and remedy production losses and the costs incurred through them.

 

Risk management

 

Finally, reliability engineering is concerned with the overall goal to manage any risks to an organisation's goals to ensure that stakeholders are satisfied and the business is a success.
