Many questions are raised:
- What are we going to inspect?
- And why, what are we looking for?
- Are there other methods available?
- Is inspection the right choice to provide answers on our questions?
To reach your goal it is important to answer these before an inspection. The question seem simple, so why do we do this in practice? in practice but not full? There is much to be gained, mainly direct future cost savings.
Often there are many internal and external parties involved with inspections, like for cleaning, intelligent pig suppliers, inspectors/supervisors, but also preparatory activities. Which of these parties represents your interest? Unfortunately, we often hear that the reliability of the inspection results reduce due to the fact that there is no optimal match and follow-up of activities.
