The AIMS Division's CORE System(CORE) is comprised of proprietary inspection productivity modules, databases, spreadsheets, processes, procedures, works and creations, workflows, strategies, methodologies, and related proprietary subject matter developed to specifically address subject matter specific mechanical integrity initiatives.

The CORE System (CORE) provides safe, cost-effective solutions in the development, implementation, optimization, and ever-greening of either risk-based or traditional time based mechanical integrity programs.

CORE™ - CUI Manager – Corrosion Under Insulation Program Management Module is a cloud based software solution that prioritizes fixed equipment susceptible to Corrosion Under Insulation either by a RBI - Risk Assessment or by conventional API requirements. The module establishes and maintains a standardized regime for the planning and execution of every aspect of the CUI Inspection life cycle.

The program contains a systematic CUI inspection process breakdown within the software, progress reporting, tracking of all access requirements, such as scaffolding, insulation, inspections, NDT, coating planning as well as repair and mitigation activities. The program has dynamic real time reporting of every phase of the CUI inspection life cycle for every piece of equipment contained with your program, eliminating the frustrations experienced by many owner-users trying to determine what CUI inspection steps have been completed and what is remaining by Equipment Category, Process Unit, or Facility at any one given time.

PMIM™ – Positive Material Identification Module is a software solution to track the progress and cost of the scaffold, insulation, and inspection activities at any given time during a PMI or Retroactive PMI program. The module allows the client to choose between a risk-based or strictly by API 570 pipe class when prioritizing equipment to be included in the program.

  • PMIG™ – Positive Material Identification Group is a piping component that consists of multiple energy-dispersive x-ray fluorescence analysis.
  • PMIL™ – Positive Material Identification Location is a single energy-dispersive x-ray fluorescence analysis within a Positive Material Identification Group.

HFAM™ – HF Flange Assessment Module quickly and accurately gives an inspector a “go” or “no-go” analysis of a corroded HF Alky flange, based on the client’s specific rejection criteria. The data is transmitted to the software. The software determines proper repair plan depending on the size and the extent of damage recorded.

DESM™ – Deficient Equipment / System Module is a Process Safety Management deficiency analysis and tracking software. The software analyzes the deficiency, ranks the deficiency according to priority, assigns a date due when the deficiency is to be mitigated, and tracks the progress and number of deficiencies that are either outstanding or completed.

TAPM™ – Turnaround Planning Module tracks all facets of pre-turnaround and turnaround planning. The software is compatible with MS Project or Primavera to provide current cost and progress analysis as well an accurate one, three or seven-day look-ahead.

CCDM™ – Corrosion Control Document Module is a library of corrosion control documents for every unit that exists within a refinery. Documents are easily customized to reflect the operating and design conditions of specific client.

HTAM™ – Heater Tube Assessment Module is a comprehensive tube life program that prioritizes heater tubes by initial estimates of remaining life, Inspection prioritization/identification of critical heaters, includes Heater inspection/condition assessment, gives an accurate determination of remaining life by probabilistic analysis, and provides tube replacement recommendations.

UORM™ – Unit Overview Reporting Module provides a standard for reporting by unit in relation to damage mechanisms, equipment counts, equipment deficiencies, and the number of corrosion monitoring locations.

NEPM™ – National Emphasis Program Auditing Module provides a range of PSM related Auditing services, including Assessment of compliance for pressure vessels, relief valves, piping, and tanks. The program includes review and updating, evaluation of inspection program initiatives vs. execution to identify gaps that may exist.

DBMM™ – Database Management Module give our clients the option of having a dedicated server that host all of their inspection data remotely. Secure data that only they have access to, regardless of how many facilities are being managed, and regardless of the mechanical integrity software being utilized.
