Staying fit for purpose over the whole lifecycle.
The management of physical assets - selection, maintenance, inspection and renewal - plays a key role in determining the operational performance, safety and profitability of your industry.
Deterioration processes such as fatigue cracks and corrosion can always be present to some degree. The challenge to management is to ensure that the integrity of engineered systems – for instance, offshore structures, ships, pipelines and process systems – is maintained throughout the anticipated service life.
What is Asset Integrity Management?
The objectives of an Asset Integrity Management (AIM) system are the delivery of business requirements maximizing return on assets whilst maintaining stakeholder value and minimizing business risks associated with accidents and loss of production.
Asset Integrity is the ability of an asset to perform its required function effectively and efficiently whilst safeguarding life and the environment.
