Risk-based Asset Integrity Management Process and Technology for Sustainable Operation of Transport Infrastructure Systems

Nowadays, under strong economic pressure, the duration of facilities operation is often extended in service conditions more severely than those provided at design. It is also common that facilities undergo changes or improvements in time to answer new functional requirements. Under these conditions, organizations must secure long-term transport infrastructure operation by controlling the associated risks regarding assets ageing. However, organizations are faced with many disturbances (financial, operational, etc.) which frequently lead to rationalized resources affecting them where their efficiency will be the largest. In this context, several owners, supported by Oxand, adopted an innovative approach, based on risk analysis, in order to define Asset Management policy, strategy and plans. Risk-based Asset Management process and technology are illustrated with two case studies: (1) Risk-based inspection, testing and monitoring planning for the building structures of Aéroports de Paris; (2) Risk and performance assessment on a catenary network according to different scenarios of budget constraints.
