PFD2RBD Released 17-01-2020


17th January 2020 - Advanced Analysis Australia announces the release of  PFD2RBD:  a revolution in RAM Analysis. The software is a much needed development for  large projects with hundreds of thousands of assets. PFD2RBD automates the expensive, time consuming and tedious task of creating RBDs and cuts the cost of this process to a fraction of its manual cost. The larger the job the more the savings and of course once the library is setup, then the issue of errors and inaccuracies inherent in the manual process disappears.  The software will read in a *.pdf of any drawing, PFD, P&ID or anything else.  It searches for library items in each drawing and once it identifies an item it will add it to a list and allow you to enter any data associated with RAM analysis finally outputting an xml file which can be imported into Reliasoft’s Blocksim ready for analysis.   Have a look at the software in action in the video panel above.  

Multi-disciplinary Advanced Engineering Consultants and Software Developers.  Pioneers in Engineering Automation and Digitisation.




We specialise in fire and explosion and other accident investigations for the oil and gas sector and the chemical industries. This includes  loss of containment of toxics  (including H2S), as well as structural response to fire and explosions in the course of accident events.

Fire and Explosion CFD, Helideck and Thermal Plume 

 We have some of the best  experts in Computational Fluid Dynamics CFD for fire and explosion consequence analysis,  Thermal Plume Studies and Helideck studies. 


FEA / Vessel Calcs

Finite Element Analysis FEA and other analysis to characterise  structural response of platforms, concrete buildings and other structures to various loads including   Fires and explosions.


QRA/Parts Count, BRA, and other Safety Studies

Our Consultants have extensive experience with safety studies for both  onshore and offshore oil and gas production facilities.  Our QRA's are simply carried out faster, are more accurate and cost less because we employ the latest automated parts count methodology.  


We are an engineering consultancy established January 2016  by Dr. Madhat Abdel-jawad:  A former rocket scientist with over 15 years’ experience in technical safety specializing in the modelling and of  fires and explosions, conducting accident investigations and advanced modelling of fluid-structural interaction.  We are all PhD qualified expert users of several consequence, structural analysis and QRA software packages .

Our team includes safety consulting engineers and expert programmers who have worked with nearly every operator and many large engineering house in the world  to carry out safety studies with some of the most advanced techniques currently available which invariably means faster, higher quality and lower cost for our clients.
