Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS)
Safety instrumented systems (SIS) are flexible and effective tools for safeguarding process plants. SIS can be configured in many ways to meet a variety of process goals and performance targets. Kenexis helps our clients to utilize Safety Instrumented Systems by assisting in the design, verification and ongoing mechanical integrity programs. This assistance includes risk-based establishment of Safety Integrity Level (SIL), developing Safety Requirement Specifications (SRS), quantitative design verification (SIL Verification), Test planning and assistance and continuing performance assessment and auditing. Through our work on standards and our ongoing effort to train engineers in this field, it became apparent that we could continue to improve the quality, accuracy, and repeatability if we created software tools for our team and yours.
Vertigo was developed with our expertise in SIS design, our process knowledge, and overall risk analysis capabilities. This expertise is then deployed using best-in-class tools such as the Vertigo™ SIS Design Basis software. This combination provides the most rigorous analysis, which results in a robust and well-designed Safety Instrumented System, which ensures compliance with applicable requirements.
