  • Patent number: 10437203
    Abstract: A computer-implemented system includes a plurality of metrological interface devices. Each metrological interface device is in communication with a metrological sensing device configured to detect metrological data from a physical asset. The computer-implemented system also includes a portable computing device. The portable computing device is configured to a) receive a metrological data set, the metrological data set substantially representing data associated with the physical asset at a point in time, b) process the metrological data set and an asset data model into a processed metrological data set, c) upon determining, based on the processed metrological data set, a metrological variance, recalibrating the asset data model and returning to step (a), and d) upon determining no metrological variance, reporting the metrological data set and the asset data model to at least one report recipient.
