Component Integrity Management System (CIMS)
A Component Integrity Management System has the means to compile and manage a lot of data. To be able to do this will require a high security, and further more a facility-specific database system which will capture, manage and report on all collected and analysed data.
Preferably, a CIMS database 5 is web-based thus providing the ability to:
- review and access data online
- provide all necessary progress and inventory reports
- permit streamlined QA / QC of CIMS data, and
- enable cost-effective internal or client audit of data held within the system
Therefore, a Component Integrity Management System should, most of all, record the information relevant to the component or line where leak integrity is compromised, including linking of relevant P&IDs, photos, and OGI videos.
