If you’re like most design, welding and fabrication companies, you’re managing your data across multiple systems (including your design calculation program), a modeling program, and a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) program (if it’s not included in your modeling system). Using three different systems to manage the same data can feel overwhelming, not to mention you’re wasting too much time re-entering the same data into these different systems.
For example, you’re spending man-hours having someone input the drawing information into one program, input the same geometry again into a pressure vessel design program to make sure it can meet code, and then also keying that information into your FEA to see if it can handle nozzle loads. That’s a lot of wasted time, compounded by the fact that the longer and more tedious the process, the more likely someone on your team will make an error.
When you integrate the multiple systems you use for pressure vessel design and fabrication, you centralize the process and eliminate data re-entry as much as possible. As a result, you’ll find yourself liberated from time-consuming and stressful operations and free to put your focus and attention where it can be utilized confidently and productively.
