What is Risk Based Inspection (RBI)?
RBI is a proven methodology that uses risk as the primary indicator of when to inspect an asset instead of time. It computes an asset’s Likelihood of Failure (LoF) compared to its Consequence of Failure (CoF) to determine which assets are most in need of inspection or maintenance, improving maintenance spend and reducing the likelihood of unplanned shutdowns.
In comparison to time-based inspection methods, RBI methodology prioritizes scheduling according to the assets that are most at risk. This allows you to prioritize inspection and maintenance budgets where it counts the most, rather than waste resources on unnecessary inspections for functional assets.
RBI methodology aligns with and supports API 580 and 581.
