ASME PTB-12-2017 pdf free

While the ISO standards are a bit more specific in some areas (e.g.. pie-commissioning/commissioning). and less specific in others (e.g.. operations and maintenance), the standard doesn’t provide much records management guidance except for the last bullet related to construction records. The ISO standard recognized a specific need to continuously have access to the construction records. This improvement in practice of providing more access to records is also recognized by the nuclear industry in the next section.
NACE International (NACE) standard SPOI 13-2013 “Pipeline Integrity Method Selection” 1191 provides an overview of available assessment methods and selection guidance to choose an appropriate method to assess the integrity of liquid or gas pipelines for external corrosion, internal corrosion, and SCC threats. This standard is primarily tlcused on records collection and prescribes very little (if any) records management. It does not prescribe or require any records from the selection process to be stored in any specific manner or for any specific amount of time. The NACE standard describes selecting a second assessment based on information from the first but doesn’t describe how to store the information in between.
The reason the NACE document doesn’t prescribe record keeping practices is because it is intended to complement a robust integrity management and operations and maintenance program, which should contain recordkeeping requirements. The NACE document provides technical guidance. hut it may not be able to serve its purpose without adequate recordkeeping guidance provided by another standard.
1.1.5 Recent Improvements
The industry will need a go-forward approach that will manage new records and data in a way that will maximize the utility of available records as much as practical. and improve upon record keeping practices for the future, to take advantage of modern technology and lessons learned.
Modern records management programs have been presented at various U.S. pipeline operator conferences and Ibrurns frequently since around 2012. Operators in the U.S. have taken action in response to the NTSII’s, PHMSA’s, and U.S. Congressional recommendations and rules. Presenters across the industry have valued peer review of their data and records management review programs. Common themes of the review programs include organizing and searching source records, creating a document ranking system. and creating a cross-reference between the source records and the verified pipeline system materials data.
Some operators have found that digitization has allowed them to create a system that is more sustainable and allows more of the operators’ employees to access data and recordkeeping system, which is perceived as an increase in value on the investment. Specific examples include operators that have digitally captured or transferred source records into a records management system, which allows the operator to initially conduct research efficiently, hut ultimately links source records to GIS. The GIS system provides an interface with the pipeline records system that allows access for a much wider set of employees. These GISbased systems can provide more accessibility than most traditional analogue systems (e.g… like maps. or alignment sheets) because they can often be navigated more quickly and intuitively and on a system-wide scale. They can also provide more accessibility than a spreadsheet based cross-reference between source records and verified data because of the barriers to understanding the spreadsheet cross-reference.ASME PTB-12 pdf free download.
