Improving Production Uptime
Maintaining your asset's integrity can be a significant challenge without a robust asset performance optimization and integrity management program. Our integrated Asset Integrity Management (AIM) solution can help decrease cost, improve operational performance, prevent downtime and increase efficiency. Using a return-on-investment (ROI) focused methodology, our team will develop an AIM program for your specific structural integrity, mechanical and machinery integrity, and control system integrity needs.
Understanding the Full Risk Picture
Through our holistic approach to understanding the full risk picture, our AIM program covers the key elements of people, processes, systems, technology and governance structure across your organization. Our approach is also data-driven, providing asset owners with a solid understanding of an asset's condition so that sound management decisions can be made to drive safer, responsible and more compliant operations.
Through standalone or integrated packages, we can provide:
- Assessment of the current asset integrity framework
- Benchmarking of the integrity maturity relative to industry peers
- Identification of areas for improvement
- Development of improvement programs
