Reliability based mechanical integrity: Basic training for rotating equipment


This course is designed for plant personnel to learn the basics of the reliability based mechanical integrity (RBMI) process for rotating equipment and how to navigate and utilize the Capstone RBMI software to effectively develop and manage a risk-based integrity program for rotating equipment. The course includes hands-on work to maximize the learning experience.

Course content

  1. Introduction to RBMI
  2. Data collection
  3. Criticality for rotating equipment assets and components
  4. Activity planning
  5. Activity management
  6. Non-conformances
  7. Reports and report server
