A study has been made of the issues involved in the provision of RAMS support functions integrated into an existing on-line plant supervision tool called FORMENTOR, The FORMENTOR project aimed at offering real-time decision support to operators of complex industrial plants, acting as a supervision system assisting management of abnormal or hazardous plant situtations.
An on-line tool like FORMENTOR, after integrating the necessary extensions, can also be deployed as a useful tool for maintenance support by taking advantage of its monitoring and diagnostic capabilities, its knowledge bases and the type of support offered. These concepts are evolved further, taking advantage of a particularly efficient computer implementation of plant probabilistic RAMS models.
