Independent audit services for your SPI instrumentation database.
WiseTools Inc. can examine your instrumentation database and identify erroneous, missing and non-conforming data, so that the data can be easily and quickly corrected.

Do you have a project that is ready for commissioning and is scheduled to be signed off?
Asset management is more than a buzzword. Millions of dollars are spent building your instrumentation database and often data is provided by an EPC without checking for accuracy or ensuring adherence to your corporate standards.
WiseTools can audit an EPC instrumentation database for compliance at critical stages and prior to commissioning the project. A WiseTools data audit eliminates the migration of erroneous and non-conforming data thereby improving the continued accuracy of your instrumentation data. It increases confidence in your data and the value of this important asset.

Customizing your SPI Data Audit to your Standards
WiseTools Inc. uses the information you provide from the Audit Services Questionnaire to customize the data audit to your corporate standards. Providing us with accurate information about your Smart Plant Instrumentation and INtools database standards ensures a complete and comprehensive data audit.
The Audit Services Questionnaire interrogates and summarizes your standards for the Instrument Index, Spec/Datasheets, Process Data, Wiring and Loop Modules. Your responses are applied to the WiseTools INAConfig® program, creating appropriate rules and exceptions for the INAudit® program.
INAudit® uses I/O values for many of the data audit functions. As each database can have several descriptions and types of I/O, understanding and defining this relationship is the first step.
The data audit expects that core instrument index fields will always have a value.
For example, fields such as Equipment Number, Service Description, Manufacturer, Model and PO, Line Number, I/O, Location, P&ID generally have a value. If a value is not required, such as a Line Number for a tag with a SOFT I/O, a triple dash (---) is recommended to indicate that the designer has reviewed the field and not just left it blank.
The questionnaire must be completed prior to scheduling your data audit. Please contact us if you have any questions.
