Inspection Optimization Strategy: Intrusive inspection scope and inspection effectiveness | TÜV Rheinland
Benefit from our inspection optimization services

Our inspection optimization strategy provides methodology aimed at the structured development of the risk based inspection of diverse and complex assets. Our IOS services reduce turnaround scope and duration, lower intervention costs associated with equipment preparation, and ensure compliance with the health, safety, security and environment (HSSE) standards for entry into confined spaces. We conduct online high temperature NII to prevent any loss of production, reduce stress on equipment, shorten turnaround times, and provide quick results. We help you save time and money to make your business more productive and more profitable.

Our inspection optimization strategy services

We provide comprehensive range of services to develop minimum intervention strategies for inspection specifically for your needs and assets. Our services include:

  • One-day Inspection Optimization Strategy (IOS) feasibility study
    Our experts review a part of your facility to assess the potential for IOS improvements.
  • Risk based inspection (RBI) quality review
    We review your RBI database and advise you on its quality. After that we perform further optimization.
  • Turn around and periodic inspection optimization
    We identify safety critical elements and recommend you the facility assets for turnaround and periodic inspections to optimize and minimize the inspection scope and costs.
  • Selection of the appropriate inspection techniques and methods
    We review operational conditions of your assets to define most common type of occurring problems (e.g. corrosion, cracking, etc.). We analyze your RBI tool and what mechanical integrity data is required. Then we recommend you the most appropriate inspection techniques and methods which can obtain the needed mechanical integrity data.
  • (High temperature) Non-intrusive inspections (NII) and robotic internal inspections (RII)
    We offer NII services to inspect your asset up to 485°C from the outside and robotic services to enter confined spaces if internal inspection is required.

Our inspection optimization strategy services can be applied to diverse projects throughout many industries. Applying IOS methodology during asset design, for example, helps to create an optimal environment for minimum intervention. A solid inspection optimization strategy is useful when designing vessels for NII (outside access, no doubler plates or cage ladders) or RII inspections (accessibility via sufficient hand holes). IOS principles also ensure strong quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) guidelines when selecting materials that can impact non-intrusive inspection (e.g. internal steel cladding).

Our experts review RBI data to tighten scope and assess alternative inspection techniques to eliminate or reduce preparatory work, lower cost, and decrease production deferment.
