Mechanical Integrity: Development of Procedures, Work Processes, and Human Performance Improvement

The development of a mechanical integrity maintenance system is your next step if: a) Your RBI program has not been updated in a year; b) You are unsure if your report templates are complete; c) Your KPIs are not tracked; d) You are unsure where you are in the plan-do-check-update cycle; e) Your people can use a refresher training course on your RBI technology, but you realize this is not a long-term solution; f) You want to align your work processes and procedures to ensure a sustainable best practice.
Mechanical Integrity: Development of Procedures, Work Processes, and Human Performance Improvement

The best maintenance systems are designed such that all elements work together as a quality system. If even one element is missing or poorly designed, the performance of the maintenance system suffers and is not as effective as it can be.

Asset Optimization Consultants designs mechanical integrity maintenance systems that account for each element, which improves the quality and sustainability of your RBI work processes and procedures. These improvements transform personnel, enabling them to embrace new processes and procedures and to develop discipline and effective behaviors in all circumstances.

The result is an enhanced culture of safety and performance with an effective, compliant, reliable operation.
