By the end of this presentation the attendees will understand the need for an Infrastructure Reliability and Risk Assessment for their critical environment as well as what types of systems should be included in the evaluation, how the evaluation should be performed to ensure tangible results, how it should be reported and ultimately how to interpret and utilize the information presented in the assessment to their advantage.
1. What is an Infrastructure Reliability and Risk Assessment and what do I need one for?
2. Who should perform an Infrastructure Reliability and Risk Assessment.
3. What information should be included in an Infrastructure Reliability and Risk Assessment.
4. What building systems should be included. This will be an infrastructure system by system approach.
5. What are the key things to look for when my study is complete?
A. Reliability Level.
B. Single Points of Failure within Critical Systems.
C. Redundancy of Critical Systems.
D. System Integration.
E. Adequacy of Engineered Systems (Exhaust Points).
F. Adequacy of Operations, Maintenance and Testing Programs.
G. Benchmark Findings with Industry Standards.
6. Availability, MTBF Calculations and Probability of Failure Calculations. What are they, who does them, what do they mean?
7. Computational fluid dynamic modeling.
8. How long should a study like this take?
9. Review of a sample study.
