Aiming at improving the safety of process startup, this paper integrates safety evaluation into an operational design methodology which designs operable processes by proposing alternatives, examining process operability and modifying plnat structures and operating procedures. Safety analysis is used as a key component of design evaluation for examining potential hazards during startup. Potential hazards are eliminated by modifying both plant structure and operating procedures. Issues for both methodology and implementation of a prototype in G2 are discussed. Finally, the system is applied to an industrial hydrodesulfurization process.
