Oil and Gas and Chemical businesses who have more than one site often have various Risk Based Inspection (RBI) methodologies in their portfolio. Typically this derives from mergers and acquisitions, risk models changing overtime, different RBI software packages, or various different global regulatory drives (API 580/581 vs. European Risk Management Associations RIMAP standards).
Different RBI methodologies will typically dictate different data models, work processes, and reporting metrics. This doubles or triples your man power to understand your current risk state, analysis and reporting, training, and IT costs.
The SAP Asset Intelligence Network (AIN) solution set offers an extended template driven modeling capability that allows operators to setup multiple data sets to describe the various RBI approaches. This, combined with the AsInt RBI App embedded within the SAP AIN and ASPM (Asset Strategy and Performance Management) allows operators to manage multiple RBI approaches within a single solution.
