Safety & Operational Reliability

Reliability, Functional & Systems Safety

Energy Equipment OEM’s are relying more and more on their supply chain for sub-system design while they focus on systems engineering and integration to improve overall product reliability and diagnostic capabilities. This, combined with the growing trend from Owner-Operators to prefer pay-for-use contracting, makes designing for reliable and predictable performance critical to control risk.

Our solution for safety and operational reliability enables this by increasing system reliability while decreasing maintenance and sustainment costs, and reducing the total cost of ownership.

Complex equipment and systems developed by OEMs for today’s energy industry combine electronics, hydraulics, mechanical components, and sub-systems with thousands of parts. The greater the complexity of the system, the harder it is to identify potential risks that can interfere with plant operations. OEMs are also shifting design responsibility to their supply chain while they focus on systems engineering and integration. This means they must be able to effectively include design and failure data generated by suppliers as the basis for analyzing overall product reliability and diagnostics. Additionally, Owner-Operators are now transferring the financial risk of operating and maintaining plant equipment back to the OEM through pay-for-use contracts. As a result, OEMs must increasingly design for reliability; and accurately predict support costs to avoid significant variances in actual operating costs impacting contract profitability.

Our solution greatly simplifies this complex process by automatically generating and mapping dependencies from the consolidated product architectures and structures. This allows OEMs to design equipment for operational consistency with predictable costs and performance. The result is increased system reliability with lower maintenance requirements for a more predictable cost of ownership.

Możliwości rozwiązania

Explore the key areas of this solution.

Bill of Materials Management

Know your product by providing a common source of BOM information across your organization. Whether you need basic BOM management, or more advanced BOM management and configuration with greater flexibility and scalability, you can meet and exceed the market demand for more innovative and varied product offerings.

Mechanical Design Management

Bring together all of your mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD) data in a single product data management (PDM) environment to improve engineering productivity. Whether your company uses one or more MCAD tools, you can easily find parts and assemblies created in other tools within your preferred MCAD environment, then modify and incorporate them into multi-CAD assemblies or product designs. Automate engineering change, validation, and approval processes to speed cycle time and improve product quality.

Product Architecture & System Modeling

Leverage complete architecture and system modeling capabilities to capture product architecture data with the product lifecycle, enabling complete visibility into design decisions, allowing the various domains across your product lifecycle (software, electronics, mechanics, etc.) to stay connected.

Product Requirements Engineering

Allocate requirements to various downstream functions/features/product architectures, all while generating reports, documentation, and dashboards to manage the requirements process. Create, view, and edit requirements directly from familiar Microsoft Office applications, including Microsoft Word and Excel. Lifecycle Integrated requirements enable "start integrated, stay integrated" development processes across the entire product lifecycle.

Safety & Reliability Modeling

Maintenance Aware Design (MADe) comes in three options depending on the maturity of your hazard & safety management practices. Start with System Reliability Modeling to model expected product behavior and evaluate the impact of potential failures and risks associated with product configuration—producing standard failure management artifacts such as FMEA, reliability diagrams. Next, move up to Reliability, Availability, Maintainability & Safety (RAMS) analysis to assess when failures are expected to occur, how to mitigate the risks, and calculate impact on system cost, safety, and availability. Then move to preventative/prognostics to support Condition-Based Maintenance (when the actual condition of the product dictates what maintenance should be performed) by advising sensor designers for diagnostic coverage to ensure preventative fault detection, providing a proactive means of creating fault-robust products that are immune to failures.

System Simulation

Address system complexity and integration from early design phases.
