Workflow

ACET Workflow follows a sequential order ensuring all job steps have been completed correctly and checkpoints met before moving forward.

The constant movement of the workflow process means once a person has finished their part, the system will automatically notify the next person in the sequence, ensuring it is not forgotten and reducing the overall time to complete the job.

ACET workflow visibility allows the key people to see...

Risk Based Assessment

The ACET Risk Based Assessment (RBA) uses a qualitative approach to generate the optimal maintenance requirements used to examine equipment such as pressure vessels, heat exchangers and piping within the asset.

It examines the Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) and business risk of ‘active’ and ‘potential’ Damage Mechanisms...

Core

A significant problem in the oil and gas industry is the extensive use of personal spreadsheets to manage data and perform analyses from multiple data sources. This practice leads to the creation of information data islands, i.e. local storage of useful knowledge that is not visible to users. There is also an increased risk of corrupted data leading to a reasonable mistrust of the data gathered.

ACET presents managers and engineers responsible for implementing, maintaining and improving the integrity management strategy...

Inspection Dates & Frequencies

Different parts of the asset may be examined at different intervals depending on the degree of risk associated with each part or component.

Examinations need to be carried out sufficiently frequently to identify, at an early stage, any deterioration or flaw which is likely to affect the safe operation of the asset...

Work Packs

It is usual for inspection campaigns to group equipment together where they have the same inspection due date.

A work pack is a comprehensive package (electronic or paper based) of all relevant documentation necessary to perform the inspection scope.

It is typically prepared by the Inspection Body (organisation which will manage the performance of the inspection), in conjunction with the owner and in advance of the inspection...

Integrated Planning

ACET incorporates an Integrated Planning Module (IPM) which acts as an interface between the system and the clients’ preferred planning tool. The link between the Core module and the IPM gives the user the ability to filter on several key criteria including date ranges, inspection categories, overdue items, etc.

The IPM main screen displays important...

Inspections

In-service inspection is one of the tools used to manage the risk of failure. To ensure reliable detection and assessment during an inspection, suitable Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) methods and techniques must be selected based on the type of deterioration being inspected for.

The inspection module within ACET supports a variety of NDT inspection methods including, ACFM, Area Mapping, Dye Penetrant, Eddy Current, External Condition, General Visual, Hydrostatic, Magnetic Particle, Pipeline (Cathodic Protection, General Visual...

Paperless Inspection

Numerous organisations still rely on paper forms and templates to manage their asset inspections, with data collected from inspection activities having to be re-typed manually. With its paperless inspection options ACET helps improve quality compliance through end-to-end management of the inspection process.

ACET provides three paperless options for...

Inspection Analysis

Inspection analysis gives knowledge of past, present and future condition and/or performance of equipment, systems, maintenance capability and production. Analysis and data trending can give advanced warning of when equipment and systems could fail. Trending can identify circumstances where further investigation is required to identify underlying issues. This knowledge can lead to improved inspection productivity through efficient, short, medium and long term planning of...

Exceptions – Anomalies & Failures

The Exceptions module in ACET is used to record, track and manage inspection anomalies, defects, findings, queries and failures from initial detection to final repair or replacement.

Through the use of the ACET Exceptions module...

Repair Orders

The Repair Orders module in ACET ensures all equipment anomalies, defects, findings, queries and failures are repaired within agreed timescales without incurring significant increases in safety, integrity or business risks.

Through the use of the ACET Repair Orders module each repair can be categorised and prioritised using a standardised process ensuring that the defective equipment is repaired in a demonstrable and auditable manner thus reducing the risk...

Key Performance Indicators

ACET Key Performance Indicators use the system metrics to determine how your asset is performing against your business objectives.

The user selects a KPI rule set and builds the KPI definition. Each KPI definition can have a specified frequency (weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly, etc.) to record a snapshot of the current values for the rule set against the equipment group...

Health Checks

ACET incorporates a high level “Health Flag” which colour codes the health of a grouping (e.g. system) based on a simple Traffic Light Flag - Green, Yellow, Amber, Pink and Red, where the colour is linked to criteria associated with user set performance limits or thresholds.

Creating your Health Checks in ACET

1. Name the Health Check and select a Health Check rule
2. Set the Health Check level and...
