This handbook includes a CD-ROM containing spreadsheet templates and other information that can be used to develop an inspection program for pressure vessels, piping, and other equipment in a power plant or other industrial facilities. Assisting users in developing an inspection program, the Handbook provides guidance with the following functions: framing an inquiry; collecting and formatting the relevant data; analyzing the data; obtaining failure probability vs. time and other useful information; performing system analysis when necessary; and mathematically determining the correct sequence and timing for a series of major maintenance activities. The CD-ROM also includes an alternative flow chart that links to abbreviated versions of the step-by-step procedures. The Handbook identifies known areas where safety exposures exist and suggests ways in which these exposures can be addressed.A Step-by-step Instruction Manual with Sample Applications ...
