Permanently installed guided wave sensors are an attractive option for pipeline inspection as they offer significant inspection cost reductions and enhanced damage monitoring. This paper presents a statistical method with which data collected from industrial sensor installations over time can be analyzed to detect damage with set probabilities of detection and false-calling, and to model how damage sensitivity will evolve over time as a result of environmental effects. This information can be then used to actively adjust the data collection interval of permanently installed sensors in order to guarantee the detection of a given magnitude of damage growth.
