    Abstract

    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.
