Inspections

Challenges

1

Standardization

Standardization of inspection procedures that are regulation-compliant and applicable to the same equipment, irrespective of location.

2

What to Inspect?

Determination of inspector objectivity, jurisdiction and independence.

3

Data Integrity

Quality, accuracy, objectivity and consistency issues related to manually recorded, paper-based data collection not built from standardized checklists.

4

Data Availability

Delay in receipt of handwritten documentation of inspection findings,
often only available on completion of the inspection.

5

Inspector Efficiency

Coordination and communication with expensive third-party inspectors and provision/receipt of all necessary information.

6

Knowledge/Experience

Loss of knowledge and best practices of third-party and experienced inspectors who fail to leave sufficient records.

7

Complexity & Risk

Increasingly complex equipment and plants, higher demands for quality and safety, and expectation to complete inspections in less time and with fewer resources.

Solution

The Mobideo Platform offers a paradigm shift in inspection procedures by digitalizing workflows, forms and checklists and delivering notifications, alerts, reports, digital wallcharts and KPI dashboards. Integrating with existing systems of record such as schedule and EAM/APM/CMMS solutions, it rapidly digitalizes unique inspection know-how and content captured from operational documentation (such as manuals, SOPs and checklists). The inspection data is then integrated in existing planned and scheduled inspection activities as actionable tasks and digitalized checklists that can be dispatched to inspectors and teams in real-time. This digitalization delivers three important solutions:

Connected Workers

The Mobideo App enables inspectors to dynamically populate task content and digital checklists using any mobile device, including the capture and addition of photographs, barcodes and annotations. Furthermore, it ensures that inspectors only inspect what is necessary – according to standardized procedures and regulatory compliance – since task content is specific to the type of inspection and the equipment being inspected, eliminating boilerplate templates and one-size-fits-all checklists.

Connected Managers

The Mobideo Control Center turns planned and scheduled inspection activities into digitalized tasks that are dispatched to inspectors in the field. Providing alerts and notifications of available inspection work based on the completion of dependent tasks and the prioritization of inspection tasks, it also enables tracking of inspector progress, the automatic creation of inspection reports, and better decision-making and management of resources, all in real time.

Process Optimization

The Mobideo Optimizer captures all data from the Mobideo App and the Mobideo Control Center, generating a rich set of reliable inspection data that is available for immediate analysis and for use in real-time digital wallcharts. This valuable data serves a range of purposes – such as KPI measurement, creation of real-time reports, evaluation of how inspection tasks are actually being executed and identification of trends and work patterns – that drive continuous process improvement and strengthen operational excellence.

Benefits

Regulation-compliant standardization of paperless inspections through digital checklists

Provides inspectors with digital checklists of relevant tasks in advance, ensuring a steady stream of work and accurate, consistent inspection procedures that enable the deployment of inspectors for the uniform testing of equipment in plants around the globe.

Increase in productivity and elimination of out-of-date, paper-based schedules, documents and information, manual reporting and human errors, ensuring streamlined, paperless, more efficient and accurate execution and reporting of inspections.

Availability of all relevant inspection documents, drawings and results on a mobile device eliminates paper trails and ensures immediate access to the most up-to-date versions of reference material.

Specific digital safety checklists adapted to each task, inspector and equipment reduces the likelihood of possibly dangerous safety shortcuts and increases the reliability of results.

Always know who did what, and when.

Digital capture of inspection data ensures the retention of knowledge and the consistent execution of inspection tasks at the same high standard.

Real-time visibility provides valuable insights – such as when inspection teams are falling behind – and enables immediate, proactive intervention, including the reassignment of resources to meet changing needs.

Inspection data automatically populates compliance reports, KPIs and dashboards to drive continuous improvement and analytics, eliminate data transposition and associated errors, and improve the quality of data in systems of record.

Automated review, sign-off and approval of inspection-driven work delivers a frictionless experience, eliminating the need for stakeholders to be onsite for review and approval.
