Past Projects


Aerospace and Defense Industry:                   Functional Safety

In order to support Airbus Space and Defence Group, a set of analysis was carried out for an airport radar antenna system.
The qualitative and quantitative safety analysis was carried out to verify if the Antenna system achieves  the safety requirement as well as to propose a design modification based on FTA analysis for safety target achievement. The safety requirement was specified based on such qualitative and quantitative analysis to achieve the client request.
In addition the asset performance optimization was applied in order to define the best preventive maintenance schedule to maximize the operational availability and reliability in order to reduce the risk of total loss of the antenna. The analysis applied to this project were:

  • Functional hazard analysis (antenna System)
  • MTBE based on Enterprise Architecture and Doors.
  • FMEA (Azimuth, Transmitter and Waveguide)
  • FTA (Transmitter and Waveguide)
  • RAMS based on Asset Performance Optimization (antenna system)

 



Railways Industry:         RAMS and LCC analysis

In order to support bombardier to implement the RAM assessment for a Double deck train project defined in the standard EN 50126, a set of analysis were carried out for different train equipment. In addition the different train configuration was proposed based on the whole train modelling. The analysis applied to this project for different system such boogie, breaks, pantograph, traction, fire detection, communication system, HVAC, propulsion, doors. The qualitative and quantitative analysis were:

  • Lifetime Data Analysis
  • Reliability Growth Analysis
  • FMEA (verification and validation)
  • RCM (verification and validation)
  • RAM analysis


Oil and Gas Industry:  Offshore Assets RAM Analysis

These projects were performed based on companies database and information which enable to perform different  types of  RAM analysis of subsea and platform for different companies such as :

 

  • Chevron/Technip:  Subsea Asset which encompassed equipment such as flexible line, flow line, PLEM, Umbilical, jumpers
  •   ADCO Company, Aldab’iya Gas Production System Decoupling RAM analysis, UAE,  RAM analysis using MAROS and Blocksim 9.0.
  •   ADCO Company, HAIL Subsea and Topsite system RAM analysis, UAE,  RAM analysis using MAROS and Blocksim 9.0.

 



Oil and Gas Industry:    Asset Management

 Subsea Asset performance optimization was carried out in order to verify the operational assurance of subsea system which encompassed equipment such as flexible line, flow line, PLEM, Umbilical, jumpers of Chevron asset in Indonesia.

Therefore, different reliability engineering methods such as FMECA, RCM, RBI, RAM analysis, ILS, HRA and Asset Integrity Management were applied by using different software such as MAROS (DNV), Blocksim (Reliasoft), apmOptmizer (BQR)and Active Bow Tie 1.5.



Oil and Gas Industry:    Refineries Assets RAM analysis

These projects encompassed different types of equipment and methods such as Lifetime data analysis and reliability growth analysis as well refinery plants RAM analysis. Different  plants from Petrobras S.A refineries were modeled by RAM analysis such as:

  • HDT
  • UGH
  • UFCC
  • DEA
  • Acid Water
  • Distillation
  • Crude Distillation
  • Propane
  • Drill Facilities
  • Utilities (Cooling Water and  Electric supply)

These analysis were carried out by using different software packages such as Weibul ++ (Reliasoft), RGA++ (Reliasoft) , Blocksim (Reliasoft) and MAROS (DNV).



Other projects
