Risk-based approach to life management can help to
optimize the inspection and maintenance programs and to
simultaneously promote plant economy and safety.
Conceptual principles and practical advantages of the
risk-based methods are highlighted with an application
example from a power plant. Benefits require that the
maintenance action will avoid both unnecessary attention
to low-risk events and undue neglect of high-impact
phenomena. By considering the evolution of risk during
the life of the plant and its components, the approach is
extended from traditional risk-based inspections towards
risk-based life management.
