Overview of Inspection Data Management System (IDMS)

An Inspection Data Management System (IDMS) is a software program utilized in the oil and gas and chemical processing industry to organize data related to a facility’s fixed equipment inspection regime.[1]

Most IDMS software focuses on two primary tasks. The first is creating and keeping track of inspection schedules for various equipment. The second is to record the results of each inspection for later review and analysis. Some IDMS software can perform other tasks as well, but virtually all IDMS software performs these two essential functions.[1]

As Risk Based Inspection (RBI) has become more widespread within the industry, more and more IDMS programs are incorporating RBI techniques into their programs.
