Resilience

How is Resilience Defined in Our Industry?

When it comes to dealing with disasters or other disruptive events for coastal communities, facilities, or critical infrastructure, there are many interpretations of the term “resilience” within the government and private sectors. But they all share some common elements that involve preparedness, ability to survive, and speed of recovery.  Resilience is a cycle of preparing, responding, recovering, and adapting after an event or natural disaster so that efforts are improved for future events.

Why APTIM?

For decades, APTIM, an award-winning, nationally recognized leader in disaster recovery, coastal engineering, flood mitigation, and program management, has taken a holistic approach to resiliency, understanding that multiple systems impact the success or failure of a community victimized by storms.

Introducing R²AM™ – A New and Resilient Approach to a Proven Methodology for Asset Reliability

Optimal performance of industry assets is key to obtaining a return on the significant investment required to have, operate, and maintain them. Reliability, availability, and maintainability (RAM) analysis allows for the simulation of the asset’s entire lifetime performance to help improve uptime and throughput. With in-depth knowledge of this simulation, APTIM helps customers reach both their operational and financial goals.

With increasing natural disasters and unplanned events, you need a partner who is able to proactively help you to prepare, respond, and recover quickly when they strike. APTIM has established a strong reputation for delivering the extensive resources needed to provide full-service resiliency before, during, and after natural disasters. We work with clients and communities to assist in the preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation from hazards.

We are taking RAM to the next level. Introducing R²AM™, an improvement of the known methodology that now includes a plan for making operations more resilient. When disasters strike, industrial facilities are just as prone to damage as the surrounding communities and local infrastructure. APTIM’s strong reputation for delivering full-service resiliency allows us to help our customers prepare, respond, recover, and mitigate so that production can come in line sooner.
