- The Automated Data Analysis of Pressure Tubes (ADAPT) software has been developed to provide decision support to analysts interpreting ultrasonic inspection data
- The knowledge based system incorporates human expertise and has undergone testing at Strathclyde and at Bruce Power
- Data-driven techniques enable the automation of more subjective tasks
- The software identifies features and calculates parameters of the data, mirroring the existing analysis process to provide decision support
- Recent testing has demonstrated performance comparable to that of a human analyst in a fraction of the time currently required
- Side-by-side sessions with analysts highlighted key areas for improvement related to “edge cases” and large-scale analysis
