Objectives of the module

The inspection module is a true “toolbox” for the inspection department, helping users improve inspection programs, ensure regulatory compliance, reduce risk, and implement an inspection strategy to ensure facility reliability.

With this module, you will be able to:

  • Organize a “measuring points” approach for qualitative and quantitative data collection, evaluation, and documentation.
  • Carry out inspections based on criticality (RBI – Risk Based Inspection)
  • Edit inspection plans (unit or mass) from the data entered, ensuring the history of versions and the management of validations.
  • Monitor and analyze identified defects and their failure modes.
  • Process and monitor non-destructive testing (NDT)
  • Ensure compliance with the regulations in force according to the country (multi-country regulatory engine)
  1. Identify and highlight assets at risk to better allocate resources and reduce inspection costs.
  2. Have a criticality engine allowing the integration of API581, EEUA, DT84 or any other type of study.
  3. Automatically program the time and frequency of inspections or controls for each asset.
  4. Save more than 30% of time in inspection management.
  5. Improve equipment availability.
Further details

The SIRFULL Inspection solution, integrated into the APM PowerMaint™ platform, is a module that uses the Risk-Based Inspection (RBI) methodology. This approach focuses on the equipment and failure mechanisms that pose the greatest risk to the operation of industrial equipment. By assessing the risks and ways to reduce them, the RBI approach realizes the relationship between the types of failure that cause equipment failures and the planning of inspections that reduce the risk.

The high configuration capability of our criticality engine allows to set up studies including steps, questions, weights, matrices, calculation formulas, to obtain a criticality or end of life date, in order to suggest to the inspectors, the optimal frequency of control or inspection. This feature allows inspectors to improve their criticality studies, considering the results of non-destructive testing, the rate of failure, the typology of the most recurrent defects, and using their feedback to integrate best practices in the inspection strategy.

The module also tracks the operating status of industrial equipment as defined by users, providing inspectors with the ability to trace the analyses used to define follow-up actions to be taken, as well as to trace excesses. The bi module allows for the visualization of historical data of all measuring points of any equipment, as well as statistical analysis, which allows for the monitoring of failure rates and anomalies, and the calculation of the life span of industrial equipment.
