RBI Potential Savings Calculator

Version 1.0

Create mechanical integrity program (MI) value rather than it being seen as a necessary cost to minimize. Are your MI program actions hard to track? Do you keep doing the same inspections and still missing preventable failures? Do you want your MI program to be more targeted and actually reduce unplanned loss of containment events? This tool can help convince your organization to move to risk based inspection (RBI) by showing value whether you have a mature time/condition based program or nothing at all.

RBI Potential Savings Calculator

This tool was developed so that you and your organization can convince yourselves of the value to be gained by moving to RBI. Whether you find yourself with a mature time/condition based mechanical integrity (MI) program or have no program at all, moving to a risk based inspection (RBI) program can have value. These are two ends of the spectrum, with regard to mechanical integrity, that many of us find ourselves on. This tool can show value at either spectrum's end and in the middle. Our post on RBI Value: Both Transitioning And From The Start can show you how to make the case.

Upon submission of the form below, you will be sent a file with an estimate of your savings available by adopting a Risk Based Inspection (RBI) approach. We have prepopulated most fields with default values that we believe are appropriate, but you may make any adjustments you see fit.
