Implementing Digital Inspection Systems for Critical Asset Management

Digital inspection systems are a growing trend and a common transformation case for organisations with engineering projects or critical assets. As technology continues to reshape how organisations operate, the anatomy of digital transformation is wide in scope, and driven by varying priorities like predictive analytics, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things (IoT) and automation.

“Making the move to digital inspection is as much about cultural change as it is about automation,” comments Paul Eddison, Inspectivity Co-Founder and Director.

“Companies with digital aspirations need to think critically about the important foundations required. High-quality digital data is crucial for supporting future automation, artificial intelligence and machine learning. For engineering businesses this starts with a move toward digital inspection processes.”

Making the transition to a digital inspection system requires a thorough implementation strategy to ensure its success. To simplify the planning involved in selecting a digital inspection software vendor, Inspectivity advises involving a broad range of stakeholders from legal and compliance, through to IT, engineering and lead inspectors.

Remaining agile during a digital transition is key with roll-on opportunities to integrate other business systems, migrate paper based processes and capture new value benefiting from a staged or ‘use case’ approach.

Overall, the implementation of new intelligent processes like paperless inspection methods will accelerate responsiveness, improve service levels and reduce costs across the business.

“By implementing digital inspection systems, information becomes more accessible for the entire value chain,” says Thomas Buckel, Inspectivity Co-Founder and Director.

“We have observed that when standard operating procedures are modified to include new technologies, organisations experience a significant upside regarding efficiency, safety, quality and control for inspection and asset management,” explains Buckel.

From critical asset management to ex inspections, structural maintenance and construction or completion projects, digital engineering inspection software can assist companies in creating new opportunities to capture value such as automated compliance, asset visibility and powerful analytics.

Inspectivity’s recent whitepaper “Digital Inspections – An Implementer’s Guide” breaks down the implementation lifecycle when transitioning to a digital inspection environment and outlines considerations companies can make to increase their chances of success.

Relevant from the very beginning of a project, digital inspection systems can create huge value to operations by capturing data throughout the entire project lifecycle.

“We wanted to define a clear pathway for creating an agile, cloud-based inspection environment for businesses in the minerals, energy and engineering sectors, and share our experience of integrating traditional processes with new mobile operating principles,” concluded Eddison.
