Defect Management

In 2009, we asked the North Sea integrity management community what the requirements were to manage their multiple common repair registers and remove the historic problems; which were predominately centered around spreadsheets. We applied our software engineering knowledge and created the first standardised anomaly management system.

Defects includes our industry standard anomaly creation wizard to ensure the information you need is captured from the initial reporting of the issue.

Supporting documents, images and video clips can be stored within each anomaly. Users add recommendations, assessments and review comments directly to each anomaly record. All changes to the anomaly details, status or completion timeline, require a justification comment, which is stored in each anomaly’s individual history log.

Providing a fully transparent and comprehensive history log helps ONE users manage anomalies appropriately and to a safe conclusion, which also assists during HSE and compliance audits. A range of remediation and mitigation task types may be added to each anomaly, to detail the work which the assessment driven outcome requires.

An extensive suite of live and historic anomaly reports have been developed based on client users requests - to visually represent the status, parameters and monthly trends of all anomaly data types. This reduces the time to collate key management information, in some cases from days and hours, to a single click of a button.

Our clients tell us that there is no other anomaly management system for oil & gas operators, which offers a fraction of the benefits that ONE provides for them. ONE has completely revolutionised our clients anomaly management: reverting back to spreadsheets is not an option.
