Reporting Overview – Unity Plot
This is an overview of the Unity Plot report as part of our Cognitive Integrity Management user guide video series.
Before we get into the report please note that in order for this report to be effective you must have field repair data entered or loaded into Cognitive Integrity Management.
The purpose of this report is to compare the reported vendor ILI data to the actual measurements reported from the field.
The great thing about this report is it is powered by Microsoft Power BI which means it is interactive. To learn more about this functionality please refer to the Power BI tutorials that can be found https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/powerplatform/power-bi?WT.mc_id=sitertzn_learntab_guidedlearning-card-powerbi
We will also be doing a detailed video on custom visualizations that are possible within the Power BI dashboards in CIM.
To get started, the report will default to view the entire pipeline system. You are able to filter the data down by a number of different filters that can be found on the right-hand side of the screen. These filters include assessment name, year, vendor, etc to name a few.
Let’s focus first on the metal loss tab. The data will automatically refresh to display a unity plot for the selected filter. The slider to the right of the unity plot is defaulted to greater than or less than 10% tolerance, this can be adjusted according to the tool tolerance being evaluated. As you can see from this example (2011 Eureka to Lincoln) there is a single outlier when looking at the metal loss depth percentage.
The significance of the outliers is to depict the performance of the inline inspection tool that is being run which may help point out vendor performance. In this case, the reading shows that the tool performed outside of the 10% tool tolerance. You can then take these learnings into consideration when planning your next assessment or whether the data can be used for analysis.
This analysis can be done for cracks, dents, lengths of features, and burst pressure; these can all be found as tabs along the bottom of the dashboard.
The unity plot report also has a table that covers anomaly information which provides a detailed table view of the various unity plots.
This report can easily be exported to excel, saved as a PDF or word document to distributed across departments.
We have now covered a quick overview of the Unity Plot report in Cognitive Integrity Management.
