PS Asset Integrity Manager®, PSAIM™ Product Note - v1.5 with RBI Module
PSAIM v.1.5 with RBI Module is the current General Availability (GA) version and was released to market in April 2019
Customers are requested to upgrade to PSAIM 1.5 to benefit from the enhancements and fixes and check out our website http://usa.siemens.com/psaim
Major Version, PSAIM™ 1.x which includes, v 1.5,
represents the future for customers that manage the integrity of safety
critical equipment. It provides customers with features to set a standard for
corrosion monitoring, inspection planning and scheduling, remaining life
calculations, working with relevant API inspection recommendations listed in
API 510 (vessels), API 570 (piping), API 653 (tanks) and API 576 (safety relief
valves), and ASME codes and practices. PSAIM incorporates recent advances in
technology for optimizing inspection time and cost through real time analysis
and bidirectional transfer of data with data loggers, spreadsheets, 2D & 3D
Computer Aided Design (CAD) software, and ERP systems.
A unique feature is the ERP system interface.
The connection can simplify and automate work requests by eliminating manual
entries and duplicate equipment data, therefore helping to reduce time and
PSAIM 1.5 includes the RBI (Risk Based Inspection)
Module. With the RBI module, PSAIM provides a unique solution that integrates
time, condition, and risk-based inspection planning and scheduling into one
The software license can be purchased for a
specific number of named or concurrent users, company site or multiple sites as rental for a
period of 30 days to 12 months or as a subscription for a renewable term of
more than one year and up to 5 years. Subscription includes product
support services, patch and minor release updates to the software.
With the PSAIM 1.5 release, Siemens further extends its leadership in the IDMS & RBI space. Customers may further optimize cost; increase efficiency in planning and executing internal and external inspections, and make capital intensive decisions for re-rating, repair or replacement of fixed equipment. Features include:
The PSAIM RBI
module is integrated into
PSAIM 1.5 and incorporates over 15 year of development by Siemens and TWI. It
automates the fully quantitative methods and procedures of risk-based inspection
(RBI) in process plants, according to API RP 580, API RP 581 and
semi-quantitative assessment as per industry best practice. It is used to
enable the facility operators or owners to establish an optimum inspection
strategy; inspection programs; and take maintenance decisions. The PSAIM RBI
Module is sold as a separately priced option which is turned on from the
license file and requires PSAIM 1.5 license by the customer.
MAOP Calculations & Reports for ASME B31.1, B31.3, B31.4, B31.8, B31.11, S8/D1, S8/D2, API 650 CS & SS for determining the limiting pressure from last known thickness.
Localized Corrosion calculation for Pipe based on B31G. This analysis is used for evaluation of localized corrosion to check the integrity of pipe.
ASME Flange calculations to check the flange rating based on ASME B16.5 to determine the limiting pressure of the Eq/Circ ID.
Piping Structural T-min beam formula calculator for user input. Piping Size Index chart with nominal thickness and schedules. User option to use API 574 recommended target and default Structural T-Mins.
