Dominion East Ohio (DEO) is using smartphones and tablets to read and transmit RFID tag data to document aboveground pipeline coating and corrosion inspections. Historically, DEO performed the inspections using a paper-based process, but this did not provide the company with adequate information regarding which assets were inspected, their location, the severity or proof of inspection. After a successful pilot, employees now use the system to provide a visual record of the station’s current conditions and confirm that maintenance functions have been completed. Learn how DEO has utilized the technology to increase documentation and reduce clerical human error, as well as provide real-time data, proof of identification, “before” and “after” photos, GPS verification and onsite audit verification.
