Overview of Data Management

Data Management refers to the process of collecting and organizing data in a way that makes it useful and easy to retrieve, navigate, and read at a later date. Over the course of a single day, the average facility will generate immense amounts of data. This data includes things such as pressure, flow, and conditions of various pieces of equipment such as pipelines, valves, and pressure vessels

Data management can be a complex process. This is because data can come from numerous incompatible sources, with different levels of completeness and complexity. Getting these distinct sources of data to all mesh together can be difficult. Although the process can be made a bit easier with the use of a good data management system.

Proper data management is incredibly important for effective Asset Integrity Management programs.
