Responding to regulatory requirements could cost millions of dollars when safety or environmental performance issues can be perceived to be substandard. These issues are driven by the intersection of several disciplines such as reliability of systems, functional safety management of process control systems and human reliability performance, which, are all complex on their own but become an order of magnitude more difficult when trying to manage them collectively.  In this webinar our experts will walk through a case study where we will show how to: 

  • Analyze the performance of a system designed to reduce environmental emissions in a downstream asset
  • Predict the rate of seemingly random operator errors 
  • Identify simple improvements in basic control system logic solvers 
  • Integrate mechanical reliability analysis 
  • Compare the performance of several design options to improve performance 
  • Communicate recommendations in a way that builds trust with regulators.
