Video: Commissioning for Reliability and Resiliency – Lessons Learned

The ability of critical systems to anticipate, resist, respond, adapt, and recover from a failure or disturbance – from natural disasters to intentional attacks to human error – can have huge consequences, and owners of critical facilities are adding formal resiliency plans to their risk management.

The ability of critical systems to anticipate, resist, respond, adapt, and recover from a failure or disturbance – from natural disasters to intentional attacks to human error – can have huge consequences, and owners of critical facilities are adding formal resiliency plans to their risk management. This course will explore commissioning’s role including appropriate metrics, examples of vulnerabilities facing facilities today, and discussion of several case studies where additional planning could have mitigated disruptive or catastrophic events.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Expose audiences to some of the resilience vulnerabilities facing owners, their infrastructure, and facilities today, and potential consequences associated with failures/disruptions/outages.
  2. Learn the importance of reliability, resiliency, and security in various facilities, their infrastructure and systems, and how commissioning can contribute in developing and managing resiliency.
  3. Review metrics for evaluating reliability and resiliency, and balancing the costs and benefits associated with implementation.
  4. View case studies where attention or inattention to system reliability/resiliency may have mitigated or caused catastrophic consequences.
