SPInspector Version 1.8

 

Our latest release of SPInspector version 1.8 is packed full of features and new inspections to help keep your SPI Database running efficiently.  With project level inspections you can now see how individual projects are progressing, and any errors or issues that may arise before the project is merged into the as-built SPI database.  A new group (Module) allows for auditing instrument specification data fields. This in turn provides the ability to select instrument specification data fields that are required to have engineering data. See below for further information

Upgraded Installation Options

  • Create a New Installation or Append to an existing Installation.
    • New installation allows for using a previous version and latest version.
    • Append to an existing installation allows for upgrading to the latest version.

Multi Database Configuration Technology

  • Create multiple database/domain configurations (Profiles).
    • Similar to SPI/SI Database (Profile) function.
    • A drop down selection for the configuration names.
  • Benefits:
    • Configurations can be either for Oracle or MS-SQL and for different SPI/SI versions.
    • Eliminates users from having to provide database credentials everytime when switching between databases.

Specification Audits

  • A new group (Module) that allows for auditing instrument specification data fields.
  • Dependence on SPI/SI Spec Data Dictionary (SpecDD) for each specification form.
    Benefits:

    • Ability to select instrument specification data fields that are required to have engineering data.
    • Ability to provide a percent completion per instrument specification data (Selected fields or Entire instrument specification data).
  • Additional Functions:
    • Ability to Export and Import Configuration from one installation to another.
    • Ability to Add additional fields to the result files such as Status, Criticality, and other. This capability dependence on the SPI/SI tables that are available to be mapped to SPI/SI spec pages/forms.
    • Ability to add translation to the XML file for specification DDDL and DDDT fields. Example: Value G in a field means @Gage in the Spec Display.
  • Field Selection per SpecDD
  • Resolution of Conflicts with field names
    • Orif_pipe_mat_id in Flow and Line Tables.
    • Notes are provided to resolve conflicts.
  • Adding Fields to the result files
  • Adding Translation
  • Result File for selected fields
    • Notice, Yellow cells indicates blank (No engineering data is provided)
  • Result File for Selected Fields and Percent Completion
  • Result File for Overall Percent Completion
  • Result File for Overall Percent Completion with KPI Charts
  • Password Protection for Configurations and Result File

Designed by Mangan’s in-house SPI Subject Matter Expert (SME) Nezar Faitouri, SPInspector marries technology with industry best-practice approaches to ensure your SPI database is in sync with your facility.

Safeguard your SmartPlant® Instrumentation Investment

SmartPlant® Instrumentation has evolved into the industry standard for the design, documentation and management of Process Instrumentation and Control Systems. SPI functions for defining relationships among instrumentation components, wiring, control modules and control module resources are very powerful, but complex. In working with our clients’ SPI databases, our engineers found the following common issues:

  • Unintended data discrepancies in our clients’ database prevented efficient functionality (i.e. 3rd party interfaces).
  • Clients were unaware that data discrepancies existed.
  • Clients that knew of data discrepancies didn’t have the ability or resources to address them.
  • Clients lacked the ability to thoroughly verify the overall condition, quality or consistency of project data.

Product Features

SPInspector was created by our engineers as an empowerment tool designed to provide SPI users a full, real-time assessment of the SPI database. Our system enables complete data accuracy, thereby improving production by identifying problems early-on and minimizing their impact.

Inspections:

  • Duplicate Items
  • Minimum Data
  • Instrument Index
  • Wiring
  • Reports
  • ESL Tables
  • Claim and Merge Flag
  • Document Binders
  • Custom Queries of your own!

Features and Benefits

 

Defend your database

SPInspector is an intuitive software that audits your SPI database to identify discrepancies and ensure the accuracy of your data. SPInspector will standardize, organize and streamline your inspection protocol to save your resources and protect your SPI investment.

Innovated By Instrumentation Engineers And Spi Subject Matter Experts

Instrumentation Engineers and Subject Matter Experts designed SPInspector to be user-friendly, intuitive and plant-ready, which is the ultimate benefit of software designed by engineers, for engineers.

Data validation

SPInspector quickly and easily conducts a full SPI database inspection with 271 queries. One-click access and organized pre-loaded inspections provide immediate results to your entire SPI database; saving your project time and money.

View project status

SPInspector interrogates the SPI database directly, and provides continuous access to project status. You can quickly identify fragmented or insufficient project work as it’s being populated.

Customised inspection protocol

Design and organize your database inspection protocol by incorporating your own custom queries into the tool, or have our experts customize the software to your specific requirements.

Protect 3rdparty interfaces

With SPInspector, you maintain a healthy interaction with 3rd party software as it identifies problematic threats to the free flow of data between software and saves resources by avoiding troubleshooting and down-time.

Target inspections

By grouping inspection criteria, you can control the scope of your database examination and capture a snapshot of the SPI data you want evaluated.

Database synchronization

Through the identification of problematic data, SPInspector ensures synchronization between your SPI database and the current state of your plant. Your virtual plant will accurately portray the real one.

Scaled result files

Manageable results to individual inspections provide brief, comprehensive files (.CSV or .XLS) to best address issues efficiently.

No active SPI license required

SPInspector is an independent application which is recognized by Intergraph® to work alongside SPI and maintain high-quality data content within SPI databases.
