Abstract

In safety critical and non-routine situations, inspection capability may need to be demonstrated by an independent process of Inspection Qualification (IQ). This process is costly and time consuming. Therefore an approach that could aid in its production would be beneficial. This paper describes the development of interactive software tools empowering the NDT engineer to design and evaluate the capability of an ultrasonic inspection within a single environment. This paper discusses the motivation for the system, the design and implementation of the tools and the benefits it will provide.
