The Integrity Management Process is to secure sufficient safety for the structural integrity in an auditable manner at all times. The requirements, guidelines and recommendations of companies, customers, regulatory organs and classification companies, give shape to the main premises for this process.
Your two main activities for ensuring a successful integrity management
- 1. Decide what to be done
- 2. Decide how to do it
“What to do” activities
- Review of Premises: Review requirements from owner, owner’s customers, public safety authorities and class companies. Document the applicable premises.
- Condition Assessment: Issue an integrity assessment evaluation that documents the actual safety level of the installation, and identifies recommendations for potential remedial actions. This assessment is based on the specific inspection, repair and modification results.
- Improvements: A critic review of the activities within the process according to performance requirements and the subsequent identification of the improvement potential of the process.
“How to do it” activities
- Annual program and budget: Based on the IIP (In-service Inspection Program or long term inspection program), identify the actual work tasks needed to be performed, and select the method to be applied. Method; Inspection method, repair/modification method, etc. Upon method selection the work process study provides the scheduling and resource planning activities. Detailed requirements regarding certificates and procedure approvals are to be given. Realistic time scheduling and resource requirements are the main deliverables that is processed to provide a budget based on experience data.
- Performance of the inspection: Effective performance of the inspection and high quality reporting will be achieved by focusing on work packages, drawings, procedures, follow-up regimes, reporting formats, and motivated, qualified personnel.
- Inspection reporting and level 1 assessment: High quality reporting is mandatory for a high quality structural integrity management process. The result to be reported in a management system (such as SOLV or WorkSpace) is used not only to keep a historical record, but also to perform an evaluation and identify immediate actions to be performed.
- Improvements: A critical review of the activities within the process according to performance requirements and the subsequent identification of the improvement potential of the process.
