Our Services

Forensic Engineering Forensic Engineering

Ingenia offers a unique combination of Forensic Engineering skills to assist clients who have suffered:

  • A serious machine, plant or equipment failure
  • Repeated failures of a component or machine

We have conducted some investigations that have saved in excess of $300,000 per annum from one 8 hour session.  

Our services include:

Facilitated Failure Investigations
Using our experienced facilitators we work with your team and any experts or stakeholders you nominate to conduct a failure investigation.  We use tools including Root Cause Analysis (RCA), Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) and Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) to achieve quick and accurate identification of the main causes and contributing factors of the failure.  

Using an independent facilitator helps keep the review process objective and enables the client to access effective tools without needing advanced training for its employees.

The client can choose just to have a facilitated review to identify the causes and contributing factors and then develop their own solutions.   Alternatively we can facilitate the development of either an action plan or we can design and develop solutions for the client.

We work with the client to identify the best approach to assess the failure and develop solutions.

Depending on complexity of the failure, evidence and data available a facilitated analysis can be completed within one session of 8 hours.

Warranty and Insurance
Where required, our services extend to pursuing warranty claims or proper commercial outcomes from suppliers.  We can also provide reports and expert opinions for Insurance claims.

Engineering Analysis Techniques and Tools
Part of our unique capability is the expertise to analyse stress, fatigue, vibration, thermal and fluid factors using advanced tools:

  • FEA Stress - Linear Elastic and Inelastic (Autodesk Inventor, Autodesk 360, Strand 7 and Microstran)
  • FEA modal analysis
  • Fatigue analysis tools (Autodesk)
  • Fluid flow modelling (Autodesk 360)
  • Air flow modelling (Autodesk 360)
  • Vibration Analysis (SKF Microlog)
     

Quick Response
We understand these services must be delivered quickly to allow clients to mitigate their risk and losses.  We treat this as a priority service.

Ingenia Engineering Solutions
Where required we can provide effective services to redesign, modify or re-specify maintenance or other technical parameters to prevent further failure.  We use the advanced tools and our wide ranging experience to develop these solutions.

These services are available in Adelaide and regional areas, Perth, Darwin and other locations upon request.
