Background

During the development of the Kairos - Control Room Assistant we have learned that the functional models used in the Control Room Assistant are very relevant for a HAZOP. To test this out, we repeated a recently completed HAZOP using our HAZOP Simulator with the same guide words, and found that the model is a unique framework to capture and encode asset centric knowledge and make it readily available when needed.

We would like to thank Innovation Norway for their vision of the market potential and special thanks to all our customers that support our development with excitement, engagement, very valuable insight, and technical requirements to the product.

We look forward for the exciting upcoming product development together with our Joint Industry Project partners!HAZOP simulator, root cause, consequence, mitigations of problems
