PPIM – Statistical analysis of dig operations leading to productive repairs
Download our PPIM presented white paper Statistical analysis of dig operations leading to productive repairs to pipeline industry professionals at PPIM 2020.
Inline inspection data from several runs spanning many years is available for individual pipeline segments, but compilation of this data into a comprehensive picture of pipeline integrity necessarily relies on computational tools. A critical advantage of modern data storage, analysis and visualization techniques is the relative ease of performing statistical assessments of integrity operations. Data from a single client of OneBridge Solutions Inc, Cognitive Integrity Management (“CIM”) solution may comprise over 1,000 in-line inspection (ILI) runs, hundreds of pipe segments, several million aligned anomalies, and thousands of repair records. Automated alignment of ILI data allows a single physical anomaly to be reliably tracked through many years of repeated measurements of growth and correlated repair records which also factor in PODS asset data.
