The Thematic Network is concerned with providing safe and cost effective solutions to industrial products, systems, facilities and structures across different industries. Several industries are faced with similar problems requiring solutions that are compatible with new work organisation, including the extended use of information technologies, and which are at the same time environmentally friendly. Furthermore the safety and reliability aspects, which are critical to efficiency and cost, need to be ensured not only in the design and manufacture phase but also during the operational and ageing phase of the products and facilities.
The scope of the project is the integrated treatment of the important aspects of design, production, operation of industrial products and systems. The main emphasis is on the use of reliability based methods for the optimal design of products, production facilities, industrial systems and structures from the point of view of balancing the economic aspects associated with providing predefined safety levels, with the associated costs of maintenance and availability. The approaches include modelling the reliability of the systems throughout their lifetime so as to be able to study the impact of new maintenance and repair schemes on system safety, life cycle costs, reliability, serviceability and quality. Methods for the assessment of existing structures and equipment will be addressed as well as approaches and criteria for extending the lifetime of products and industrial systems safety and with adequate levels of reliability and availability.
