What is checkSTRESS?
checkSTRESS is a unique solution to the old problem of project delays caused by "back and forth" piping layout design reviews between the Design and Engineering departments.
Simple and elegant, checkSTRESS' graphically intuitive interface helps the designer produce code-compliant designs in the first iteration, dramatically reducing the project execution and the total elapsed time.
Announcing NEW checkSTRESS products!
Under the checkSTRESS brand name, three products (For PDMS, CADMATIC, SmartPlant, AutoCAD Plant 3D, CATIA, and others) are available namely:
- checkSTRESS (which generates only CAEPIPE input file)
- checkSTRESS II (which generates input files for both CAEPIPE and CAESAR II) and
- checkSTRESS Nuke (which generates input files for both CAEPIPE and PIPESTRESS).
Does It Make Business Sense?
Consider five designers working on piping layout with one stress engineer validating their layouts. The engineer becomes the bottleneck; s/he simply cannot sign off on all the stress projects in a timely manner, what with having to do a "back-and-forth" with the five designers to first arrive at an acceptable layout before delving into the analysis details. The engineer spends most of his/her time working with the designers to first arrive at an acceptable layout, ONLY after which will s/he be able to attempt to get into the real analysis work.
RESULT: Less reliable piping systems due to hastily done analyses. Might lead to either a failure in the field or expensive redesigns.
FINAL OUTCOME: Inevitable project delay. Projects cannot be signed off.
With checkSTRESS, you get reliable systems without project delays. It makes perfect business sense.
How Does checkSTRESS Work?
checkSTRESS works an add-on to PDMS or CADMATIC and as a standalone software for others. A designer selects checkSTRESS from a menu inside PDMS/CADMATIC. For details, watch the short video below.
