Check out MSS’ Prior Use white paper featured on ISA’s website.
The white paper addresses how organizations can leverage Prior Use data to build an actionable instrumentation reliability database. We provide practical insights on how to achieve the highest possible Risk Reduction Factor (RRF) per instrumented function, while minimizing construction and maintenance costs. Topics discussed include assigning failure types, determining proven hours, PFD calculations, and data collection workflows.
The white paper draws from MSS’ partnership with BP to overcame the challenges of implementing a Proven In Use/Prior Use initiative to validate the performance of their safety systems, reduce maintenance costs, and increase safety at their facilities.
