Wood NEXUS Integrity Centre facilitates the building of integrity frameworks for all asset types, in any industry. The software can meet all-of-facility integrity needs across the life cycle and will integrate with your computerised maintenance management system (CMMS) to help you reduce data duplication and improve productivity.
Learn how you can optimise integrity and inspection data management using the next generation of NEXUS IC.
You'll learn how to:
NEXUS provides a platform for a company to build a fully tailored Asset and Integrity Management system. Existing templates use industry standards, however, these can be extensively customised to fit within a company's existing processes.
Assets are organised into a hierarchal structure, there can be one or more of these views. Each view can represent the same set of assets, for example by physical location, and by business unit.
Each asset has an Asset Type, and each Asset Type can contain 0 or more groups of information. Each information group is a configurable form of data that can be used to record static asset information, dynamic information, and calculations.
NEXUS is built upon a graphical function builder. The function builder allows configuration of complex mathematical, decisional, and statistical functions.
There is a validation centre provided as well so that validation checks can be added to every function to ensure the function is performing calculations correctly and can be verified by external standards.
Charting and data analysis can be customised to define trends, track degradation of assets and compare different assets. Charts are built upon asset data or inspection data and utilise the functions to provide comprehensive, filterable datasets.
GIS is integrated directly into NEXUS, common open sources for maps are provided using live free sources. Internal mapping services can be configured in NEXUS for custom maps.
Any data from within NEXUS can be overlaid onto the map, providing positional context of data.
Embedded multi-channel video playback provides quick and efficient viewing of video. NEXUS will seek directly to the time of the Task/Event/Anomaly, quickly allowing review of recorded data and view areas of interest.
New support for Microsoft Azure allows you to store all your video in the cloud, reducing on-premise costs and providing playback anywhere you have an internet connection.
New support for viewing 3D design drawings, additionally linking to assets is performed automatically allowing you to navigate the asset hierarchy.
Pipeline profiles have been upgraded to provide 3D views. Cross-Profile or AUV data is used to build a realistic mesh of the seabed and then overlay the pipeline and event data.
Internal pipe defects are also supported along with assessments conforming to industry standards, such as B31G and DNV-RP-F101.
Defects can be viewed side-by-side with external issues highlighting where these occur together for smarter maintenance and rectification work to be planned and performed.
Live real-time risk assessments are performed on each and every asset. Pre-built risk models such as API 580 and API 581 are available. Alternatively, new models can be built to analyse any set of parameters, or the existing models can be modified as required.
Any number of models can be defined and assigned to each asset, providing the ability to compare different codes and optimise RBI as required.
Integrity and risk models rely on data from numerous sources. NEXUS can connect directly with CMMS, Historian and Doc Control systems to either retrieve data as required or to transmit key outputs such as risk, inspection frequency, cost and reports.
Similarly, IC-Inspection can be used to remote control digital video recorders during online inspection providing a permanent link between the inspection data and the video record. In addition to controlling its own IC-Recorder, the following DVRs have been provided with protocol information to enable remote control by IC-Inspection v6. Wood recommends contacting the DVR provider to confirm compatibility prior to mobilisation.
(Custom interfaces for DVR control using IC-Inspection 5 have been developed for recorders from NETmc, VisualSoft, EdgeDVR and biyn DVR Systems.)
You can interface other systems to NEXUS IC by means of a standard REST service or other standard protocols which we maintain. In this way, you can request data from or pass data to NEXUS IC.
