Thought-provoking questions

What should the next NDT and CM research projects be focused on? Should they continue to look at new-build, including the nuclear and aerospace industries? Does more research need to be focused on detecting in-service degradation that is occurring in many industry sectors? Does more effort need to be concentrated on the advanced manufacturing techniques, such as 3D printing? Should efforts be concentrated on improving signal processing and data recording? How much resource needs to be directed in removing the human factor from inspection and testing. Would equipment loaded with codes/standards and acceptance/rejection criteria be viable and useful? On the news there are reports of drones being used in hazardous parts of the world, is there a need to push for the development of advanced drones capable of inspecting in hazardous industrial environments? Sorry, no answers, just thought-provoking questions.
