This paper focuses on techniques of improving refinery reliability, availability and profitability. Our team developed a corrosion control document (CCD) database system for refinery process. This system includes a method for defining and measuring the component risk and it also provides a powerful tool for managing many of the important elements of a refinery plant. The simulation has been applied for this system to find the critical component without direct measurement and experiment. It is possible to expect the risk parts of the refinery process. Recent study shows the loss due to corrosion in US is around $276 billion. It's a big concern for both managers and engineers of refinery industry. Therefore it is essential to make the profitable and convenient system for refinery industry to improve reliability. CCD database system consists of numerous parts namely damage mechanism (DM), design data, critical reliability variable (CRV), guidelines, etc. CCD database system has been developed on the basis of the corrosion control in refinery industry. It also improves the safety of refinery process and reduces the cost of corrosion greatly
