Flexible and scalable integrity management software

Improving productivity, removing data duplication and providing real-time asset information

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.

NEXUS IC manages information to enable:

  • Storage of live asset information during operation
  • Anomaly tracking from initial discovery to close out
  • Storage of inspection and condition-monitoring data
  • Real-time calculations to predict and analyse common integrity issues
  • Routines to automate reporting on current integrity status and integrity management strategy
  • Dynamic risk assessment from real-time data/inspection results
  • Planning for fixed interval and bespoke risk-based inspection (RBI) scheduling

NEXUS IC can interface, use and update information in a wide range of different systems such as SAP and other CMMS systems, GIS systems, and common historian systems.

Expert systems

Expert system configurations for NEXUS IC are managed by Wood's subject matter experts and are maintained to the latest standards/codes and industry best practices.

Expert systems configurations are predefined database configurations, which any NEXUS IC client can subscribe to. When you subscribe to an expert system configuration, the asset types, asset information groups, risk models, event definitions and associated outputs of the expert system (reports, charts, traffic lights and dashboards) are added to your database.

You can add further expert system configurations to your portfolio at any time. There is no limit to the number of expert system configurations you can subscribe to. Subscribing to each expert system builds a seamless single database.

NEXUS IC features

NEXUS provides a platform for your company to build a fully tailored asset performance management system. Our existing templates use industry standards, however, these can be customised to align with your existing processes.

Asset management

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.

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.

Inspection and anomaly management

NEXUS provides a repository for storing detailed inspection data along with associated multimedia and related documents. Anomaly triggers can be configured to automatically flag and categorise anomalies and their severity. The system includes routines for facilitating anomaly assessment and action tracking.

Other applications in the NEXUS suite provide a means of field-based data entry and seamless transition to the database.

Data analysis and visualisations

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. Linear charting tools are also provided for visualisation and alignment of pipeline data.

Both 2D and 3D drawings can be linked to the asset hierarchy to provide image-based navigation, traffic lighting and data overlay.
Geospatial data can be viewed on maps provided by online sources or a corporate GIS.

Any data from within NEXUS can be overlaid onto the map, providing positional context.

Video playback

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 cloud-based video allows you to store all your video in the cloud, reducing on-premise costs and providing playback anywhere you have an internet connection.

Internal pipeline defects

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.

Risk

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.

Planning

NEXUS can dynamically generate inspection and intervention plans based on all relevant assessments. Risk-based inspection intervals can be compared against regulatory requirements, corporate requirements and real-time condition-based assessments to ensure an effective and optimised intervention schedule. Further efficiencies can be achieved with connections to a corporate CMMS.

Supported platforms

Integrity and risk models rely on data from numerous sources. NEXUS can connect directly with your CMMS, Historian, GIS, document control and dashboarding systems to either retrieve data as required or to transmit key outputs such as risk, inspection frequency, cost and reports.

Digital video recorders

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.

  • Visual DVR
  • Fugro DVR
  • NETmc DVR
  • Seascape DVR
  • SubC DVR
  • SIMS Offshore
Interface protocols

You can interface other systems to NEXUS IC by means of a published REST service protocol that we maintain. In this way, you can connect any existing corporate system to NEXUS IC and request data from or pass data to the database.
