This continuing education course is written specifically for professional engineers with the objective of relating to and enhancing the practice of engineering.
Mechanical Integrity (MI) is the process of assuring equipment is in satisfactory condition to safely and reliably perform its intended purpose. MI is more than a set of inspection programs, as it should have an affect on design basis of the plant, operational procedures and maintenance procedures.
The most effective method to implement MI is to define the goals in the Conceptual Design phase, and to develop strategies to reduce the Risk of Failure, and to reduce the Consequences of Failure. With this basis, a body of knowledge is available during the design, construction, commissioning, operational and maintenance phases of a plant to assist technical personnel in accurately assessing the condition of the equipment during the operational phase.
This course describes the necessary processes and approaches to define the end goals, and to assure the goals are achieved. By taking this course, the student should understand:
- History of MI implementation
- Reasons that MI should be implemented during the Conceptual Design phase
- Available technical resources
- Driving Factors for MI implementation
- Problem areas to be avoided
- Implementation strategies
