Decision support tool for dynamic barrier management
Barrier analysis forms the foundation for risk management in the offshore industry. Decision support tools for dynamic barrier management will enable personnel to continuously monitor barrier health and take action to restore degraded barriers to prevent and mitigate major accidents. These methods will encourage effective communication and consensus among operators, maintenance, management, and regulators. This JIP will develop methods, best practices, data, and decision support tools for dynamic barrier management.
Knowing the continuous status of barriers and confidence that they will function when needed
Lack of common risk language for communication
Lack of practical decision support tools for operations
Continuous knowledge of barrier health status
Real time decision support and risk management
Common language for communication and consensus among engineering, operations, maintenance, and management
The JIP participants will develop and test:
Methods, best practices, data sources, and tools
Standardized bow tie diagrams, response trees, and decision protocols
Pilot-scale decision support systems
Systematically identify information and instrumentation requirements for continuous risk management
Provide decision guidance to restore degraded barriers or implement success paths when needed to prevent or mitigate an accident
Develop an information architecture for communication, consensus, and action among:
