Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The aim of this paper is to develop the safety importance measures for LOC in a batch process using the probabilistic safety assessment (PSA) method. The novel contribution in this paper is to link the process historical data with PSA by implementing fault propagation (FP) method using dynamic simulation Visual Modeler™. FP is a quantitative based model for representing the propagation of failure in the process. Importance measures can be used as performance indices to prioritize the importance causes therefore cost for operational and maintenance can be reduced.
