Administration

The Administration Utility is a user configurable, security and controlled administrative access module. This application is used primarily by administrative users with supervisory responsibilities to control business rules and behavior for a business unit or site.

Manage and maintain user information and site level access. Configure site information such as: units of measure defaults, lookup list categories, field labels, clone settings, reports, risk configurations, degradation mechanisms and external comments. Perform controlled data queries. Monitor the Visions server to view event activities as well as who is logged onto different Visions applications.

RBI

Visions allows for efficient use of inspection resources, without compromising plant and equipment integrity or safety. The RBI component is a matrix of both the likelihood of failure and consequence of failure, in order to establish inspection frequencies, inspection scopes and inspection methods.

Create a unique, customized risk model — which isn’t imposed on the client — and then use that model to assess assets. This risk model can handle qualitative, semi quantitative and fully quantitative methods. The end result is a logical, repeatable procedure for determining equipment inspection scopes and inspection intervals.

Piping

Included in Base Installation.

This package includes the following additional equipment types: Piping, Injection Points, and Valves.

Catalog, trend and schedule all of your facility’s piping. This module provides the functionality to trend continuous injection for corrosion and cost, and to use components to represent hangers, rollers, anchors, etc.

Pipeline

Expand your Visions experience by adding the Pipeline module to your base installation. This package includes the following additional equipment types: Pipeline Segment, Pipeline Miscellaneous, and Wellhead. Additionally, you will receive Inline Inspections, Verifications, Batch Applications, and Upstream Equipment.

The Pipeline Segment’s rich database logs a wide variety of information–location and reference points (by chainage or GPS), crossings, bends, repair work, local topography and soil conditions, service history, and more. Defect classification system logs pipeline defects using the industry-standard ALIAS model.

Integrity Operating Windows (IOW)

Improve predictive accuracy with the Integrity Operating Windows module, which facilitates the collection, retention and analysis of plant processes variable data. The IOW module is designed to gather data directly from a Data Historian, such as the OSIsoft Inc. PI software, but it also offers the ability to input manual data entries.

IOW provides early warnings when a pre-defined process variable’s boundaries are exceeded. This increases productivity by allowing constant awareness of whether a variable is operating outside parameters.

Integrity Manuals

This module allows you to define and maintain integrity and/or corrosion manuals for each plant. This helps guide inspectors and engineers in creating inspection plans, by acting as a focal point for key inspection-related information.

Much of the information required in an RBI assessment can be easily imported from the Visions database, which drastically reduces the time required to complete it. Revisions can be created at any time; information is automatically copied into the new revision to simplify data entry.

Boiler Tube Trending

Store thickness, OD measurement information, notes and attachments with Visions Tube Trending. Tube trending is used for large power boilers or furnaces that require trending of the equipment’s components. It allows you to break the equipment into sections, elevations or platens, tube numbers or locations.

Define the structure of your boiler or furnace according to your survey requirements. To simplify the definition, the sections and elevations are automatically gathered from the equipment’s static data within Visions. Tube Trending calculates expiry, flag and projected dates based on the losses and growths from thickness and OD readings.

Pressure Vessel

Included in Base Installation.

This module comes equipped with a multitude of additional equipment types, including: Boiler, Cooling Tower, Filter, Firetube Boiler, Furnace, Stack, Tank and Vessel.

Catalog, trend and schedule diverse equipment for a multitude of assets across various industries. Tank Volume Trending allows the extrapolation of current product volume from liquid height for irregularly-shaped tanks.

 

Rotating Equipment

Expand your Visions solution by implementing the Rotating Equipment (RE) module. This module adds three additional equipment types: Centrifugal Pump, General Purpose Steam Turbine, and Motor. It provides Failure Code configuration to manage reliability codes, and provides a new Integrity Report format to manage your reliability history.

This is integral for reliability engineers to assess the impact of changes on RE condition and reliability. The RE module gathers data directly from the asset maintenance package, in order to populate basic information from work orders into Visions Integrity Reports.

Trending

Included in Base installation.

Trend various types of analysis, measurements, and productions rates with Visions Trending module. Use the Product Content Testing to trend different types of chemical component analyses from various samples. Document your flow rates for various product classifications to trend production tests. 

Define your own trending and readings types with the General Trending to store annulus venting for lined pipeline segments, coupon weights/measurements for corrosion monitoring, utility pigging, and more. This acts as a user configurable statistics area to input the values of any numeric variable, then examine and take appropriate action based on the trended results.

Safety Valve

Included in Base Installation.

Catalog, trend and schedule protective safety valves and rupture discs. Visions supports the entry of detailed engineering data for many different forms of these overpressure protection devices and integrates a reciprocal link between each device and the equipment it is protecting.

Optionally, PSV Location management allows pressure safety valve swapping where you define the physical location on an asset. When a safety valve is due for service replace it with another compatible valve, keeping the service history with the individual valve.

Advance Cathodic Protection

Easily identify the structure of your Cathodic Protection (CP) systems with our Advanced CP Trending. Quickly identify what assets your systems consist of, whether they are available in Visions, what structures the system protects, and completed survey and testing results. Increase your knowledge and confidence regarding the corrosion condition of the assets.

This module provides datasheets to manage detailed information for CP Systems, Rectifiers, and CP Miscellaneous. It provides a new CP testing format to manage individual test points for both CP and protected assets.

Quality Assurance

Efficiently organize and retrieve information using the Quality Assurance module. This module is separated into a multitude of sections and consists of a variety of available reports.

Track personnel information, certifications and qualifications for welders, contractors, and inspectors/examiners. Manage calibration and maintenance logs for inspection equipment and gauges such as engineered tools, DL gauges, calipers, etc. Easily track procedures according to type or category and manage revision history for each. Directly record the location of physically boxed archive records.

Exchanger

Included in Base Installation.

This module comes equipped with three additional equipment types: Bundle, Exchanger and Plate Exchanger. Additionally, this module provides Glycol/Sodium Sampling Trending.

AutoCAD

Seamlessly integrate database information with AutoCAD drawings. With this feature, each piece of equipment may be linked with any AutoCAD drawing, and each entity in an AutoCAD drawing can be linked to any piece of equipment.

Once a drawing is registered in Visions, you can retrieve pertinent information about equipment, components, or TMLs. Link drawings and colorize them based on a variety of scenarios. Visions Graphics AutoCAD module simplifies access, allows you to extrapolate inspection results, and enables you to produce meaningful visual representations of current conditions.

Enterprise Resource Planning (CMMS)

Enjoy seamless integration with Enterprise Resource Planning applications. Create work memos in Visions based on your own intervals and then seamlessly export those work memos to an ERP system of choice, where notifications or work orders are created. That work is planned and tracked in the ERP system, and once complete, status updates are sent back to Visions.

Packaged Integration Systems

Enjoy seamless ‘out of box’ integration with SAP and EAM applications. Full, seamless integration between Visions and SAP or EAM is achieved with no additional software or configuration.

Custom Integration Systems

Seamlessly integrate your Visions client with third party computer maintenance management system applications like Maximo and JDE. Some customization will be required to facilitate these integrations.

SmartPlant Review

Access your SmartPlant Review (SPR) 3D viewer right from within Visions using the Visions SPR interface. The interface allows you to display TML information within the 3D system, store TML annotation information when plotted on a DRI or VUE file, create and save 3D inspection views, and more.

The SPR enables you to link and integrate a plant’s 3D model with the Visions database, providing a better focus of resources. The creation of inspection/engineering isometrics directly from a 3D model improves accuracy, reliability and safety, while significantly reducing time and expenses.
