RBI Concepts - Return on Net Assets (RONA)

Asset Optimization Consultants identifies the basic concepts of risk and RBI, the key requirements of an RBI assessment, the method with which risks are managed with RBI, and the relationship between RBI and other plant programs or initiatives.

Overview

Mechanical Integrity Assessments

How does your mechanical integrity program help your company achieve your corporate goals for dividends and profits? The answer is to achieve the required return on net assets (RONA).

RONA is not that far removed from the boardroom. We have heard many conversations like this one:

President: "We need 25 percent RONA to meet our objectives for dividends and profit."

CFO: "That translates into a Net Income of $200M for the company's four regions, A, B, C, and D."

Director, Region A: "Therefore my region needs to contribute 33% of that number since we have 33% of the total asset value and work capital for the company which is $66.7M next year."

Somewhere in that equation is a component of share price, book value, dividends and of course bonuses paid out to managers for achieving their targets. We will take you there - one step at a time - and demonstrate the importance of being able to measure the performance of your program as well as the performance of those managing your program.

    • OEE for your rotating equipment, and
    • Instruments and Controls target percentage of spurious trips?
