BV Upgrades RAM Software

Posted by Irina Tabakina

To help offshore operators and contractors get more out of their assets and develop projects more cost-effectively, Bureau Veritas has supercharged its reliability, availability and maintenance (RAM) software suite Optimize.“Low and falling energy prices focus attention onto the reliability, availability and maintenance (RAM) of both existing assets and plant and ongoing developments,” said Matthieu de Tugny, Senior Vice-President and head of offshore, Bureau Veritas. “A powerful RAM software tool like Optimize saves time and money for asset owners and contractors by identifying bottlenecks in process and supply lines, by modeling potential failures and their consequences, and with our new Optimize V3, by underpinning clear operational and strategic decision-making by allowing managers to see what will happen in different scenarios.”
Optimise V3 has a clear and simple user interface for model building and results analysis, according to the developer. Production buffering, boosting and profile modification modes are available. Operational behavior (ramp-up, restarts, line-pack drawdown rates) can be captured via a conditional logic system. Through life value changes, including equipment phase-in and phase-out, are easy to model.
