Description

The PACE system has been designed by Electricité de France (EDF) to meet the needs of NDT data analysis encountered in the electricity production industry (but which can be extended to many industrial fields) [1]. Its main objective is to allow the exchange, the visualization and the processing of multitechnique NDT data being provided in a standard format, and their representation in a 3-dimensional environment, with respect to actual component geometries. The system has to be adapted to the requirements of multiple user profiles, ranking from a mere replay of an inspection to a more or less advanced expertise. It is also meant to take into account the difference of competence between NDT and computer science specialists, so that software developments must not be carried on by the NDT expert.
