H-Analyst™ is another sophisticated tool developed by SaSI Innovation. It is aimed at aiding the hazard identification study, i.e. HAZOP and HAZID, early in the detailed engineering phase.
One of the major problems arising during the design of the Safety Instrumented Function (SIF) is that data transferred from a HAZOP study provide insufficient details for the SIL assessment workshop. Moreover, some data are inconsistent when conducting the HAZOP and the SIL workshops. This generally extends the time required for the SIL assessment for related activities, i.e. hazard identification, demand scenario development and consequence analysis.
H-Analyst™ can eliminate the above mentioned problems because it shares the same quantitative data with InnoSIF™ (SIL Study Tool). This ensures the consistency between HAZOP and SIL Study. In addition, the study results from H-Analyst™ can easily be transferred to InnoSIF™. Thus, Every efforts are counted!!!
Smart Risk Matrix built in H-Analyst™ version, supports both qualitative and quantitative analysis methods and configurable up to 8X8 matrix. Example Matrix above show qualitative analysis matrix for supporting HAZID study and Quantitative analysis matrix which is consistent with InnoSIF™ (Simplified SIL Classification) for supporting detailed HAZOP study, respectively.
Best Practices Integrated
H-Analyst™ provides the different guide words which are specific for HAZOP and HAZID, yet the worksheet format and the working environment for both studies are identical. Moreover, the results of HAZOP can be directly exported to SIL Study with just few easy steps.
H-Analyst™ generates the predefined risk classification of 7 levels. The user can customize the risk level to be in line with Company’s Risk Tolerability policy by activating or deactivating any items of risk level provided.
H-Analyst™ interface is easy-to-use, it makes user focus on the deviation and hazard being analysed. The tools provided are developed from the intention of working better, faster and more effective for the overall HAZOP / HAZID processes.
H-Analyst™ has a built-in report generating tool. The report is automatically developed in the MS Excel file format so it’s customisable. Information generated in the report includes the study team members, a list of reference and related documents, the risk criteria, assumptions, the major accident hazard list, Safety Critical Elements (SCEs), the study worksheet and action/response sheets.
