Integrity Data Management System (iDMS)

Information on this page:

Back to topiDMS Introduction

Tensioning in ProgressiDMS is designed to store the entire lifecycle data relating to every critical bolted joint on an installation. It provides managers and technicians with essential information about joint components used in assembly, plus it specifies the tools and the torque or tension values to deliver a leak-free joint.

A key benefit of implementing iDMS is that whenever a joint is worked on, all of the previous history and experience of that joint is available, allowing any particular requirements of the joint to be taken into account proactively prior to joint assembly and tightening.

iDMS can aid planning, ensure joint integrity, and can reduce construction and maintenance schedules and costs.

The program is specifically designed to provide the correct information needed by technicians, and remove all possibility of guesswork and/or incorrect procedures. The result is a system where joints are properly installed and certified, giving assets improved leakage, safety and environmental performance with reduced costs.

For best results the iDMS system should be implemented at the start of a project from design and construction and continue through to installation and eventual decommissioning. However the system can be adopted at any time during the life of an asset.

Tensioning applicationBenefits:

  • iDMS can be automatically linked to the project piping specifications. This assists in the initial building and population of the database.
  • Each version of iDMS can be tailor-made to meet any specific individual requirements of the operating company, but based around a solid core.
  • iDMS has been constructed to be easily adaptable to meet diverse customer needs.
  • Bespoke programming can be carried out to an agreed customer specification by our software developers.

Back to topiDMS Core Package

The iDMS Core package includes a database which is fully interactive with Informate. The system can be supplied as a single user package or as a multi user system installed on a network.

The iDMS Core package will provide users with the following benefits and services:

  • Recording and storing of all data relating to the controlled tightening of critical joints
  • Control and calculation of joint tightening data either by the inbuilt functionality of Informate or for special joints by recording the calculation source
  • Source of controlled joint tightening procedures
  • Work pack management system for planning, controlling and recording work on critical joints
  • Inspection module within the work pack manager allows recording of N2He tests, visual inspections and hydro testing of the joint
  • System to record and manage exceptions and non-standard joints
  • Means of recording leaks and the actions taken to prevent recurrence
  • Colour coding of the joint allows an instant method of reviewing the status

Back to topiDMS Custom Tailored Solutions

Each iDMS system allows tailoring according to customer needs.

Interfaces - iDMS can be interfaced to packages such as PDMS or PDS pipeline design systems.

Bespoke solutions - special adaptations to client needs, for example:

  • Export and import of data to asset management systems
  • Exporting data to populate customer documentation
  • Colour coding of the joint provides an instant review of the status

A key benefit of implementing iDMS is that whenever a joint is worked on, all of the previous history and experience of that joint is available, allowing any particular requirements of the joint to be taken into account proactively prior to joint assembly and tightening.

Back to topHypurJoint - Graphical Package

HypurJoint provides a system to import drawings into the iDMS system.

Hot spots are then allocated to the joints on the drawings, which provides easy access to joint data directly from a drawing view.

Work packs can be created directly from the drawing:

  • The HypurJoint module is an add-on graphical package
  • Drawings in electronic format can be imported into iDMS
  • Hotspots are then created on the drawings, which are linked to the joint data in iDMS

Joints can be easily selected by clicking on the joint on the drawing. This will then display the joint data.
