Sponsor: Chevron U.S.A.
Project Title: Development of Human Reliability Analysis Method for Petroleum Industry Applications
PI: Professor Ali Mosleh
Funding Level: $200,000
Through a collaborative research and development between Chevron and The Center for Reliability Engineering - B. John Garrick Institute for the Risk Sciences at UCLA, will develop a human reliability analysis ("HRA") method specifically for the petroleum industry applications, reflecting the peculiarities of this industry regarding failure modes, performance influencing factors, operator training, and operating procedures. The resulting methodology will help Chevron in making risk-informed decisions to improve safety and prevent accidents in a cost effective and robust fashion.
