The pipe - the basis for a computer aided pipeline management

Beschreibung

Maintenance, seen from economic aspects, is a factor that cannot be underestimated by any network operator. Nowadays, steel pipelines combined with cathodic corrosion protection (CCP) create the basis for applying condition based maintenance concepts. That means meanwhile the network condition, which is linked with the data gained through the periodical monitoring performed by the CCP specialist, the object-related documentation, the individual manufacturer's pipeline data and the geographic position of each pipe in a system's pipework routing can be compiled. We would like to examine this form of maintenance, which can be implemented at this time, in more detail.
