The article focuses on the impact of technology to boiler inspection methods. It states that a few organizations have spent in off-the-shelf software applications, while some have formulated and carried out their own applications for boiler inspection. It imparts that the adoption of radio-frequency-identification (RFID) chips is likely one of the key developments in boiler inspection. It adds that an intensive effort can help strengthen the boiler inspection industry as a progressive field.
