Predicting obsolescence and failures
Our aim is to help you avoid the environmental, safety and
financial costs of unscheduled shutdowns.
We deploy a range of techniques to assess why assets
deteriorate or fail enabling you to arrest any deterioration before
it becomes significant or mitigate against those failures in the
We also help you to predict when they are likely to fail
so that you can get the most from your assets by replacing or
repairing at the
right time, but not earlier than necessary.
These techniques include:
- Data mining and trending
to predict, given your current way of working and conditions, the
deterioration patterns of your assets and identify at what point
your assets are likely to fail or require major work
- Mathematical modelling,
to help forecast end of life, inform inspection strategies and
predict profitable operation dates
analysis testing at the HSE Science and
Research Centre to investigate why assets have failed and apply
those learnings to prevent subsequent failures and to predict how
long specific assets will perform.
