Support for 3rd Party Custom Software
COMPRESS and INSPECT support 3rd party custom software development by providing an XML data export option. Equipment design files exported using our XML data export can be accessed programmatically using Codeware’s public domain XML schema (data structure).
A major benefit of XML is that it protects investments in custom software because extensions to the Codeware XML schema will not break software written using older schemas. The Codeware schema is self documenting, detailed and complete as it describes the geometry, design specification and relationships between the various components.
INSPECT’s IDMS Links to Google Earth
INSPECT includes an inspection data management system (IDMS) that tracks maintenance inspections and thickness surveys. In addition, it also stores GPS positions of fixed equipment and any associated API 579 flaws such as local thin areas and pitting. Flaw locations can be conveniently displayed in Google Earth by clicking on the GPS coordinates in the corresponding flaw report. This saves time and reduces errors by helping personnel quickly and accurately locate equipment and inspection locations within your facility.
