Asset Performance Management: GE Digital Automates Inspection Planning

GE Digital announced the general availability of enhanced Compliance Management features in its Asset Performance Management (APM) Integrity software for the oil-and-gas, chemical and power industries.

Developed in collaboration with one of the largest US petroleum refiners, Compliance Management is a major development of GE Digital’s inspection data management capability, an integrated component of the Asset Performance Management (APM) Integrity solution, according to the company.
To address the risk of missed inspections on regulated equipment, Compliance Management highlights where an organization may have deficiencies and then streamlines and automates the inspection planning process. This also drastically speeds time to value for new organizations implementing the solution, according to GE Digital.

With this new functionality, GE Digital has targeted one of the most basic aspects of a mechanical integrity program: the inspection planning process. It’s difficult for planners to manage thousands of pieces of equipment and ensure there aren’t gaps in the program that could result in regulatory fines or, worst case, a loss of containment event,

said Vipin Nair, APM Integrity product leader at GE Digital.

By automating manual inspection planning processes, Compliance Management gives mechanical integrity planners a new tool to reduce the risk of missed inspections thus reducing regulatory risk, increasing team efficiency and improving safety.
