This paper describes a holistic, risk-based approach to asset integrity management (AIM). The approach outlined in this paper is referred to as risk-based maintenance. This approach is based on proven risk assessment and reliability analysis methodologies, as well as the need to have appropriate management systems. Combining these tools and management systems provides a holistic approach to managing asset integrity, rather than a seemingly random application of analysis approaches and improvement initiatives. The information in this paper will benefit plant personnel interested in implementing an integrated AIM program or advancing their current AIM program to the next level.
