Course description
This course will explain the requirements for SIM systems, present a typical SIM system and will explain the roles of the various participants. The various assessments, databases and structural analysis that are required will be introduced.  The course aims to provide an understanding of a SIM system and how it is defined; information about the activities and key issues; an overview of the roles and responsibilities of the key stakeholders, along with the importance of effective communication between them.

Learning objective
After attending the training the participants will have an overview of: 

  • Why structural integrity management is important and how it is facilitated; 
  • What the requirements for and components of an effective SIM system are;
  • Who the key stakeholders are, their roles and responsibilities and how they interact; 
  • The activities required and an understanding of their scopes, execution and outcomes; 
  • The key issues that a structural integrity management system seeks to address. 

Target group
The main target audience is engineers working within the offshore oil and gas industry, although the course would be of benefit to those responsible for integrity management in the offshore renewables sector. This course is suitable for personnel seeking a general knowledge and overview of structural integrity management, including those tasked with management of the SIM process as part of an operator’s asset management team.
