May 20, 2014 - Alignment Manager allows Pipeline Integrity Engineers to align inline inspection (ILI) and close interval survey (CIS) data with PODS database. While semi-automatic guided workflow and data mapping templates streamline alignment process, accurate correlation of ILI data with GIS centerline provides complete picture of pipeline condition. ILI vendor templates help conserve time and improve productivity, and information validated prior to submission to PODS database ensures accuracy.

New software application, Alignment Manager, integrates and aligns ILI and CIS data with the PODS GIS for improved pipeline integrity

FORT COLLINS, Colo. – New Century Software, Inc., a leading provider of GIS-based pipeline software and services, announced today that is has released an inspection alignment application, Alignment Manager, that allows Pipeline Integrity Engineers to align inline inspection (ILI) and close interval survey (CIS) data with the PODS database. The solution replaces its legacy product, iAlign, and offers additional functionality, including a guided workflow and data mapping templates that streamline the alignment process.

“In today’s regulatory climate, the ability to use accurate integrated data to make pipeline integrity decisions is more important than ever,” says Ron Brush, President of New Century Software. “Alignment Manager allows engineers to accurately correlate ILI data with the GIS centerline to get a more complete picture of the condition of the pipeline, accelerating their ability to use that data to make key decisions.”

Alignment Manager is the most recent addition to New Century Software’s growing suite of pipeline integrity management software products. Using an intuitive visual display to integrate ILI features with the GIS and prior inspections, users can meet inspection and repair deadlines. A semi-automatic alignment process guides the user, replacing time-consuming manual alignment with streamlined workflows that are easy to learn and use.

“We develop software solutions that enable users to get their jobs done more effectively and efficiently,” says Sam Acheson, Director of Software Engineering for New Century Software. “Alignment Manager is a key application in the integrity management process adding several features that enable integrity engineers to do just that. Real-time visual alignment, tight integration with the pipeline GIS, and integration with our Integrity Management solution set Alignment Manager apart from the competition.”

Additionally, Alignment Manager offers the following benefits:
• Streamlined workflows align data with GIS features and weld-to-weld with prior ILI inspections.
• ILI data is aligned with GIS features to improve centerline quality and accuracy.
• Predefined ILI vendor templates save time and improve productivity.
• Information is validated prior to submitting it to the PODS database; ensuring data is verifiable, accurate and traceable.
