Summary
A simple and transparent process to provide daily indication of the
status of safety critical elements.

The performance standard assurance process is being implemented on


Shell North Sea platforms. It uses the standard maintenance
management functionality in SAP PM to capture the results of tests of
safety critical element suitability, and track equipment defects that have
the potential to impair the required functions.
It also enables real time status reports of compliance with performance
standards.

Standards

to

Maintenance and Inspection Routines in


SAP PM which include:

The functionality required of safety


critical equipment to meet the installation
hazard analysis

Electronic
reference
to
the
corresponding performance standard.

The performance to be measured and


acceptance
criteria
required
to
demonstrate ongoing functionality.

Format to capture the Pass or Fail status


of safety critical equipment as measured
against the performance standard
acceptance criteria.

Simple equipment checks rather than


design checks e.g. is it working rather than
lumens output.
Risk mitigation measures required when
functionality is impaired.

Safe Operating
Envelope
Area of reduced safety,
(Increased risk) some
barriers are not functional.
When in this area PSAP lists
remedial measures that
need to be put in place to
return to Green area
Direction of
Increasing Risk
The Performance Standards maintains installation in the Green Zone. (Acceptable risk)
Not meeting Performance Standard results in increased risk thus moving the installation out
of the Green Zone.

Benefits of the approach


There are a number of benefits from the approach, these include:
Awareness and knowledge
Awareness and understanding by operations and maintenance
personnel of performance standards and the functions required of safety
critical equipment is increased

Involvement of operations and maintenance personnel in the assessment


of suitability achieves greater engagement with platform risk
management.

Safety Critical Element status visibility:


Safety Critical Element suitability is indicated directly from SAP PM
reports.
The integrity status of the installation is more widely available.

Maintenance, Inspection and Test results (Pass or Fail) are


reported against the performance standard reference number.

Conclusions
The implementation of the Performance Standard Assurance Process is as much
about people as it is about processes, the observations so far are:
People

Process

There are many more discussions


around performance standards and
safety critical equipment

Visibility of the
standard
related
increased.

Conformance to the new process is


gradual,
however,
non
conformance is also very visible so
feedback can be rapid and direct.

Test history of Safety Critical


Elements has much greater visibility.

This is a change in approach and


some teams align quicker than
others, but the simplicity caters for
simple communications.
