The CRIOP in short

CRIOP is short for Crisis Intervention and Operability analysis.

The CRIOP method focuses on the interaction between people, technology and organisations.
One of the most important principles of the CRIOP method is to verify that a focus is kept on important human factors, in relation to operation and handling of abnormal situations in offshore control centres, and to validate solutions and results.

CRIOP is a method used to verify and validate the ability of a control centre to safely and effectively handle all modes of operations including, e.g:

  • Start up
  • Normal operations
  • Maintenance
  • Revision maintenance
  • Process disturbances
  • Safety critical situations
  • Shut down
