Around the world, many industries are facing one common challenge: managing assets and infrastructure. Most owner/operators struggle to keep the plant operations going while trying to maximize asset life. At the same time, they also need to ensure safe, secure, and environmentally responsible operations. As a result, more and more owner/operators are paying attention to asset integrity management (AIM).
ARC Dives Into Asset Integrity Management
At ARC Advisory Group's recent Industry Forum in Orlando, Florida, asset management was among the key topics discussed. While asset performance management (APM) has always been a focus area at the ARC Industry Forum, the APM team provided a deeper dive into AIM this year. The “Strategies and Technologies for a Successful Asset Integrity Management Program” session highlighted the importance of AIM systems and pro-grams for asset-intensive industries and discussed some of the key features of a successful AIM program. The session highlighted leading solutions that are helping owner/operators strengthen their AIM programs.
Inderpreet Shoker led off the session with an ARC presentation, followed by end user presentations by William Closser (Idaho National Labs) and Rogério Kirst (Braskem) regarding the AIM strategies they have adopted and the related challenges. A panel discussion followed, at which Bob Francis (Asset Performance Technologies, now acquired by Uptake) joined the session speakers. The panel discussion offered the session attendees the opportunity to share their experiences and challenges.
