Structural Integrity Management
Maximize the Value of Your Operating Assets
Supporting and optimizing the lifecycle of an asset is at the core of what we do. An effective Structural Integrity Management (SIM) program is critical to confirm the integrity of an asset during design and construction and then maintaining that asset throughout its useful life.
As a leader in the application of advanced technology, analysis and modeling of complex engineering projects, ABS Group provides SIM services that will improve your operational efficiency, reduce risk, increase asset reliability and help you understand asset conditions to support operational and investment decision-making.
ABS Group’s structural integrity management solutions provide industry and regulatory authorities with a means to ensure the ongoing safe operation of aging assets globally.

Maintaining a Lifetime of Integrity
We recognize the criticality of your structural components. From continued production and the safety of personnel to maintaining protection of the local environment, unexpected failure could be catastrophic.
Structural integrity is a cost-effective solution to determine the fitness-for-purpose of a facility. A clear distinction between design and assessment engineering is recognized in the SIM process, enabling engineers to make strategic, data-driven decisions that will reduce and mitigate risk.
Integrity is not just a case of good design; it requires ongoing maintenance for the life of a structure, including inspection and maintenance at periodic intervals.
