The engineering design process is constantly driven toward faster, better, and lower-cost design without sacrificing accuracy, operational flexibility, and safety. For systems that handle fluids, this means meeting pressure and flowrate requirements while minimizing both the capital and operating costs of a system. Like any engineering design, however, these simple goals are easier said than done.
Engineers routinely face large uncertainty during the design of their system, inheriting cryptic tools from other engineers that require as much effort to troubleshoot the tool as to troubleshoot the system. This sink in time and margin for inaccuracy restricts the design alternatives engineers can evaluate… which means they are forced to settle for an inefficient design certain to work rather than an optimized, flexible solution.
Take a look at how using software can help resolve these pain points. See how it allows engineers to quickly model the system, easily build team communication, and efficiently design better systems.
