WHAT IS ASSET INTEGRITY MANAGEMENT (AIM) ?

Asset Integrity Management (AIM) is a concept that refers to managing an asset (such as a power plant or refinery) to guarantee that its capacity to fulfil its function efficiently and effectively is maintained.

An asset integrity management system ensures that the right processes, procedures and tools are in place for your plant assets to function safely, effectively, and efficiently at every stage of their lifecycle. It also takes into account the health, safety and environmental regulations.

An asset integrity management system applies to the operation of an asset from designing to installation, functioning, and decommissioning.

WHY IS HAVING AN ASSET INTEGRITY MANAGEMENT PROGRAMME IMPORTANT ?

At a plant, an asset integrity management programme ensures that all aspects of operations essential to safety and integrity are properly designed, constructed, tested, operated, inspected and maintained in a sustainable, holistic and systematic way. This ensures service and performance integrity without compromising health, safety and the environment.An asset integrity management audit helps deliver sustainable performance and lower the inspection, maintenance, and repair cost while improving the asset’s operational safety.
