Importing & Exporting

Importing & Exporting - ProSET®

Importing & Exporting – ProSET®

ProSET®s importing and exporting functions allow for quicker creation of projects or Reports from CSV files:

  • Importing of SIFs
  • Importing of Initiating Events
  • Exporting of SIFs

Importing SIFs

SIFs are imported by clicking on Actions -> Import SIFs.

ProSET® – Hazard Import Template.csv, which is also included in your installer file, contains the columns which can be imported and we recommend you use this template for imports.

The data is validated before importing which can cause warnings.  Help on this can be found in Troubleshooting guide below.

You can create your own import templates using the following headings:

Hazard Details

  • PHA ID
  • Node
  • Hazardous Event
  • SIF Tag / ID
  • SIF Description
  • Drawing Number

SIL Determination

  • Recommendation
  • Note
  • Selected Target (Note: User must enter in this column either CustomSIL or CustomPFD)
  • Selected PFD Target (Note: This is only to be completed if CustomPFD target is chosen)
  • Selected SIL Target(Note: This is only to be completed if CustomSIL target is chosen)

 Safety Requirement Specification

  • PHA Report Reference
  • Trip Points
  • Success Criteria
  • Functional Relationship
  • Electrical Power Loss
  • Compressed Air Loss
  • Hydraulic Pressure Loss
  • CCF Other
  • Safe State Definition
  • Concurrent Safe State
  • Process Safety Time
  • Requirement To Survive Major Accident
  • Mode Of Operation
  • SIL Achieved
  • PFD Achieved
  • Spurious Trip Rate Target
  • Spurious Trip Rate Achieved
  • SIF Response Time Achieved
  • Manual Shutdown Requirements
  • Energise / DeEnergise To Trip
  • Resetting After Shutdown
  • Overrides Enables Bypasses
  • Dangerous Combinations Of Output States
  • Actions To Achieve / Maintain Safe State
  • Action On Valve Discrepancy
  • Sensor Failures
  • Logic Solver Failures
  • Final Element Failures
  • Maintenance Considerations
  • Sensor Subsystem Tag
  • Sensor Subsystem Proof Testing Interval
  • Sensor Subsystem Mean Repair Time
  • Sensor Subsystem Periodic Automatic Testing Interval
  • Final Element Subsystem Tag
  • Final Element Subsystem Proof Testing Interval
  • Final Element Subsystem Mean Repair Time
  • Final Element Subsystem Periodic Automatic Testing Interval

Importing Initiating Events

Initiating Events are imported by clicking on Actions -> Import Initiating Events.

ProSET® – Initiating Events Import Template.csv, which is also included in your installer file, contains the columns which can be imported and we recommend you use this template for imports.

Initiating Events can only be imported for existing Hazards, by providing one of either the Hazard ID or SIF Tag in your import (If both are supplied the Hazard ID is used if a corresponding Hazard is found, otherwise the SIF Tag is used).

Note: It is not possible to export initiating events to a ‘.csv’ file.

The data is validated before importing which can cause warnings.  Help on this can be found in Troubleshooting guide below.

You can create your own import templates using the following headings:

  • Hazard ID – The ID presented in the Hazards overview screen
  • SIF Tag – The SIF Tag of the SIF used to mitigate the hazard
  • Description – A description of the initiating event
  • Frequency – The frequency of the initiating event. Note: The event frequency must be in the units of “per year”.
  • Justification – The justification for the frequency entered.

Not all fields are required when importing Initiating Events as in the case where requiring only Sources Of Demand, when only the Description field is needed.  Therefore the Description, Frequency and Justification fields have default values used if values are supplied.  The defaults are:

  • Description – “Default Import Description
  • Frequency – 1
  • Justification – Default Import Justification

Exporting SIFs

SIFs are exported by clicking on Actions -> Export SIFs.

SIFs can also be exported from an existing project to a CSV file.

Calculated PFD Targets and SIL Targets from a SIL Determination are exported along with manually set Custom Targets. However only manually set Custom PFDs and Custom SILs can be imported back into SIL Comp, as the information required to calculate the PFD and SIL Targets was not exported/imported (ie. Initiating Events, IPLs, Conditional Modifiers and Consequences).

Troubleshooting

Data to be imported is validated to ensure the integrity of a project.  Therefore the following should be kept in mind:

Before importing SIFs from a CSV file, the CSV file being imported must not be open or the following error will arise:

In the instance when columns have been deleted and / or columns have been left blank, the following error can arise:

When errors occur you can Continue which will import “valid” rows.  Clicking Cancel will not import any rows.  You can then correct any invalid rows and then re-import.

SIF Tags must be unique, so in the instance where a Hazard with a SIF Tag that already exists within the project is imported the following warning will be shown, and the SIF will NOT be imported.
