LDAR Data Management Wish List - “Now It’s Possible”
Abstract: Spending countless hours jousting with databases and reports trying to get information that makes sense. Data entry piling up from monitoring done months ago. Technicians standing around because they can’t load their data loggers. Auditors. For years I contemplated what it would take to help me rise up above all of this. I had databases. What I needed was an LDAR “data management system.” This paper offers the wish list I developed after years of managing LDAR programs at plant sites. It reveals not only what you should be looking for in a data management system, but also what’s possible when you use today’s information technology to address the complex requirements of managing LDAR program operations, reporting, and record keeping.
