Performance and Risk Modelling - Lessons from 30 years

Dick Vote is Chairman of the IMechE Safety and Reliability Group and a founder member of the Safety and Reliability Society where he is a member of Council. After several years doing front line engineering at sea he has increasingly specialised in performance and risk modelling. He was one of the very first users of the MoD Systems Availability Model and carried out the first validation of the predictions while also responsible for the machinery design project. His experience since then has been principally in oil and gas but also has carried out modelling for power generation and distribution systems, building services. The models have included “dynamic simulation” interactive mimics, reliability, availability and integrity assessments together with maintenance and support strategies. Aspects such as economics and revenue, from first principles are also described!

While it would be impossible to describe all this in detail in an hour, this presentation will describe the journey, the successes and the lessons learned and show how modelling using commercially available spreadsheets can be of advantage to the reliability and safety professional.
