It’s common practice for different departments within process plants to have their own budgets and software tools. In addition, legacy Mechanical Integrity (MI) software tools do not handle, and so cannot be used by, subject matter experts to perform Fitness-For-Service (FFS) assessments. This can lead to duplicate data entry, delays in producing results or even worse, miscommunication between departments. The end result of this disconnect is wasted time and missed opportunities.
INSPECT supports both MI and FFS activities within one platform eliminating the need for multiple softwares. With INSPECT, everyone works with the same equipment model ensuring that all departments have the same information. This not only eliminates data duplication it also reduces the load on IT and eliminates the need to be trained on multiple software tools.
At the heart of MI or FFS lays the Original Code of Construction. INSPECT is built on Codeware’s flagship COMPRESS program and its ASME calculation engine. This allows older construction codes to be used and provides a complete audit trail showing proper calculation of tmin‘s.
