Dave Butler, Senior Safety Engineer with exida, said, “We’ve assessed and certified GE Digital’s RBI-580 Fixed Equipment Criticality Engine as compliant with the API RP 580 methods and work processes since 2006. By engaging exida, an accredited certification body, to assess and certify the product, operators using APM can be assured that the component is compliant with the requirements of API RP 580 and that the software has been produced and tested properly based on accepted software development requirements.”
APM Integrity, part of GE Digital’s integrated Asset Performance Management software solution suite, enables a closed loop mechanical integrity program across the enterprise to reduce risk, lower inspection costs, and manage regulatory compliance of your fixed equipment. Using an integrated set of tools, APM Integrity calculates risk, inspection priority, and the remaining useful life of assets to generate, implement, and execute optimized inspection strategies, while streamlining auditability and compliance governance.
