Optimize Profitability, Safety, and Compliance with ISO 14224 Methods

2018 International Applied Reliability Symposium, S√£o Paulo, Brazil

August 2018

This presentation gives practical guidance for application ISO 14224 methods in enterprise software.  It shows how companies can get visibility of equipment reliability issues and their effect on profitability and sustainability; how companies can enable data-driven decision-making for equipment with instant access to high-quality, trusted data; and how companies can use high-quality RM data to help manage risk, improve production availability, reduce cost, and optimize new capital facilities.  It shows how ISO 14224 methods can be used in conjunction with Big Data Analytics and IIoT Sensors to give companies a real-time corporate view of operational risk and a toolset to optimize profitability and minimize hazards.  Specific topics covered are technical hierarchy development, malfunction reporting processes, inspections processing, data aggregation, RM data quality management, risk management, and corporate RM metrics.

ISO Standards To Enable Reliable, Safe and Cost-Effective Technology Development, Project Execution and Operational Excellence

R. √ėsteb√ł, Statoil ASA; J. T. Selvik, International Research Institute of Stavanger; G. Naegeli, Petrobras; T. Ciliberti, Reliability Dynamics LLC

May 2018

This paper addresses the current oil & gas industry need for awareness and how to accelerate use of international standardization efforts, with focus on multi-disciplinary ISO standards and business governance. Qualified compliant use of ISO standards can unlock necessary business value and is a means to achieve cost-efficiency, HSE objectives, and minimize climate impact. The user domain encompasses regulatory bodies, oil and gas companies, drilling companies, engineering companies, equipment manufacturers, research & consultancies.

The ISO/TC67 Working Group “Reliability engineering and technology" has responsibility for reliability and cost related ISO standards within the Petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries. The portfolio of the multi-disciplinary ISO standards is internationally acknowledged and has recently been updated by many new standards that the global user domain can benefit from to achieve cost-reducing technologies. Reliability and cost is part of the equation in innovative technology development processes to enforce quality and minimize risk, and enable new technology meets overall business performance objectives.

This paper gives highlights of the following ISO standards and a roadmap for their application:

  • ISO 14224 - Collection and exchange of reliability and maintenance data for equipment
  • ISO 20815 - Production assurance and reliability management
  • ISO 19008 - Standard cost coding system to gas production and processing facilities

Company applications are presented to show examples in technology development, project development, and oil & gas field operations. Standards relation to digitalization of oil and gas industry will also be addressed, eg. how ‚Äúreliability communication‚ÄĚ between oil company and supplier can benefit from use of the latest ISO standard 14224. Contractual framing of reliability and Key Performance Indicators is also be presented.

This ISO standardization work is based on international expert team efforts by many countries, and in collaboration with IOGP. The work supports the ISO/TC67 Mission: ‚ÄúTo create value-added standards for the oil and gas industry," and the ISO/TC67 Vision: ‚ÄúInternational standards used locally worldwide.‚ÄĚ

ISPM Risk and Criticality Assessment
May 2012

This document demonstrates the use of SAP Notification type R1 and ISO 14224 failure coding for capturing risk scenarios for process equipment. Since risk scenarios are simply hypothetical failures, the same failure coding used to document actual failures can and should be used. Thereby, failure scenarios can be validated by operational experience.

Risk Management with Process Hazards Analysis (PHA)

OSHA training course

May 2011

Facilities risk management is a process of identifying risk through risk assessment, risk ranking, and applying safeguards to mitigate risk.¬† A certain amount of risk reduction ‚Äúcredit‚ÄĚ is taken for each safeguard applied.¬† Follow-up ‚Äúsafeguard validation‚ÄĚ is needed to ensure assumed risk credit is actually realized.¬† Recording risk scenarios as structured relational data greatly simplifies safeguard validation and enables automated reporting processes (exception checking) to be used.¬† ¬† ¬†

We Need Standardization: A Call for a Recommended Practice for SAP PM

Keynote address at 2006 ASUG EAM Symposium

October 2006

SAP Plant Maintenance is a powerful tool for facilities asset management.  With proper architecture and methods, companies can query hundreds of thousands of records simultaneously for high-quality information with which to make operational decisions.  Unfortunately issues associated with software selection, implementation, and usage greatly diminish the effectiveness of the new ERP tools, in many cases rendering those systems into electronic equivalents of manual filing systems.  Data merging and assessment remain a data mining exercise for many companies.  The quality of corporate decision-making suffers as a result, which in turn can lead to less than optimal operational performance, and safety and environmental incidents.  Causes of these issues include lack of standard data practices, lack of engineering science and practical experience in solution design.

Use SAP PM to Capture Quality Equipment Reliability Data

Session at SAP-Centric EAM Conference 2006

April 2006

Enterprise Asset Management in the processing industries requires a focus on safety, reliability, and maintainability of equipment. Maintenance information is used to define and evaluate compliance with equipment reliability and maintainability requirements. Quality information comes from quality, structured data. Logic to store and classify data associated with technical objects is necessary to make the data readily accessible, retrievable, and comparable between similar technical objects. Such logic, called taxonomy, is structured hierarchically and based on the characteristics of technical objects.  Taxonomy greatly improves maintenance analyses and decision-making by improving information quality and availability. ISO 14224, Collection and exchange of reliability and maintenance data for equipment, promotes a standardized approach to taxonomy that maximizes the utility of data and facilitates data exchange.  This presentation describes how to configure SAP PM in a manner that rigorously captures the principles of ISO 14224 for standardized data collection and structuring of reliability and maintenance data.

Equipment Criticality Ranking (ECR)
July 2005

The purpose of an equipment criticality ranking (ECR) study is to identify and address potential risk associated with the operation of processing facilities.  Failure scenarios are identified, risk-ranked, and risk quantified with consideration given to safeguards that protect against the scenarios.  Equipment criticality rankings are a sum of risk from applicable scenarios.  Safeguards are identified and prioritized based on the amount of risk reduction they provide.

ECR study data facilitate safeguard analysis, a technique used to evaluate benefit-to-cost (BTC) ratios for risk reduction programs and to monitor safeguard effectiveness.  Safeguards should be maintained or implemented only where safeguard costs give commensurate returns in the way of reduced facility exposure.  An enterprise should reduce costs by using BTC analysis to identify and eliminate support programs with low BTC ratios.

Safeguard effectiveness is a measure of actual versus perceived risk reduction for safeguards credited with reducing risks.  Automated exception reporting can be used to monitor safeguard effectiveness and to notify personnel when intervention is required to intercept a potential loss before it happens
