Abstract

Substantial reduction of the cycle time between the piping layout design and the stress analysis is still a challenge that engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) are facing. This paper discusses such a design problem. The research proposes a knowledge-based expert system, which integrates professional knowledge and codes, expert experiences, and the effective robust design concept, in order for piping designers to create ready-to-approve layouts in an easy and fast way. This paper aims to eliminate the unnecessary cycle time for the current design procedure – not to change the procedure.
