Analysis of automated risk based inspection cost & accuracy on industrial tank maintenance & other critical NDT aspects: An executive approach

Title variants
Languages of publication
This research ventures one of the major concerns in the field of Industrial engineering as well as Quality management on the inspection environment. Determine the accuracy and defect rate for present & future inspection respectively in bottom plate thickness evaluation of tank. Analyze the decision about future inspection 100% or not, on the basis of inspection cost during the examination and decision making activity. Basically in critical inspection condition, where two or more times of inspections are needed for minimizing the risk. This project addresses modeling an automated inspection methodology for bottom plate inspection in storage tank and other critical inspection aspect.
