System
Engineering

Systems Engineering aims to improve performance of complex technical systems during their lifetime by taking into account and integrating all aspects of the design.

The methods include system specification, design, configuration validation, reliability, risk management, maintenance and logistics for both complete installations and/or individual processes – from concept to finished product. Our undertaking also includes heading up and managing the design process and the system’s life cycle as well as the people who will be working with the system.

Risk Pilot’s services within Systems Engineering include:

  • Requirement Management
    • Compliance
    • Risk/Reliability/Availability
    • Cost/Profitability
  • System design
  • Planned maintenance
  • Control room design (human-system interface design)
  • Validation and verification

Asset
Management

Enormous sums get invested in infrastructure projects such as railways, water and waste water networks, electricity supply networks, bridges, factories and research institutions. In order to maximize yield, they all need to ensure that they are optimizing operations and maintenance.

We have a lot of experience in knowledge in analyzing availability and reliability. Our expertise also covers optimizing maintenance and examining life cycle costs.

Risk Pilots service within Asset Management cover:

  • Process development
  • Availability analysis
  • Investment risk analysis
  • Project risk analysis
  • Maintenance optimization (RCM, RPM, LCC)
  • Life time extension

Examples of standards used:

  • ISO 55000
  • PAS 55

The depth of our knowledge and experience spans the following standards:

  • General
    • ISO 9001
    • ISO 14000
  • Nuclear power
    • ASME NQA-1
    • 10 CFR 50 Appendix B
    • 10 CFR Part 21
    • IAEA GS-R-3

Risk Pilot’s service within Quality Management include:

  • Implementation of quality management systems
  • Auditing customer or supplier operations
  • Reception control
  • Support for FAT/SAT

Project
Management

Carefully planned and well-implemented project management is key to a successful outcome.

At Risk Pilot we have experienced managers to lead and/or support both large and small projects.

Risk Pilot has developed its own methodology for project management based on ISO 21500, which acknowledges the nuclear industry’s call for traceability and high quality. We realise that in many cases customers want to use their own specific project management methods and we are more than happy to accommodate/adopt these.

An important part of project management is continuous risk analysis. This identifies project-critical activities and milestones to ensure that there are measures in place to minimize or eliminate risk.

Experience has shown us that the following are critical to the successful completion of a project:

  • Identification and clarification of goals and limitations
  • Realistic time-line and budget
  • Ensuring availability of key personnel and sufficient resources
  • Identification of key players both involved in and on the periphery of the project and coordinating these resources
  • Problem identification and solutions
  • Decision follow-up
  • Quality assurance

Risk Pilots services within Project Management include:

  • Project management
  • Project administration
  • Risk analysis
  • Control procedures and communication

Human
Factors

Human Factors is all about knowledge of people, technology and organizations and its interactions and interrelations. It takes into account people’s qualifications as well as their limitations in the systems they operate.

We apply our knowledge in every phase of a system’s life cycle: design and build, operation, maintenance and ultimate disposal. In addition, we also offer our services to help coordinate all the Human Factors aspects of our assignments to support the project manager.

We use established standards and guides. For example, for work in the nuclear power industry we follow NUREG 0711 and NUREG 0700 to review human factors engineering.

Risk Pilot’s services within Human Factors include:

  • Control room design (human-system interface design)
  • Procedure design and analysis
  • Safety culture
  • Operating experience feedback
  • OSA (Organizational Safety Analysis)
