WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING W5 PIPING?2020-02-25T19:44:27+00:00

There are various benefits of using W5. Firstly Tenders will be accurate, time and profits will not be lost, and projects will be easily managed. By using W5 Piping, the entire workforce will always know that there is an accurate plan in which they are able to follow and what their role is within that plan.

We simplify and speed up the process of capturing drawings and technical information, we then create an easily exportable file
that can be read by your project planning software.

Data-Capturing and planning is done with advanced software and algorithms ensuring all factors are taking into consideration, tasks assigned accordingly, as well as taking human error out of the equation.

We prioritize batching, we can manipulate resource information and we can issue/update the weekly to do lists.

We focus on Who, what, when, where, and with what.

HOW IS W5 SPOOL TRACKING SOFTWARE SO ACCURATE?2020-02-25T19:43:52+00:00

W5’s advanced spool tracking Software uses algorithms and formulas and removes human error from the equation.

By considering the variables below.

Materials: Type Nominal Bore, O.d., I.d , Wall Thickness , Kg’s per meter
Welders: Name, stamp #, qualifications
Equipment: Available tools per function (eg “Cutter” hacksaw, bandsaw, cut-off saw etc)
Pre-Planners: Name, contact, availability details (report on all captured drawings, spools etc per individual)
Time: Per material type, diameter, wall thickness, location, equipment used etc

W5 takes all these variable and allocates it to WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE AND WITH WHAT

Who will be doing the job?
What task will they be doing?
When will they be doing the job?
Where will the be working?
With what tools will the?

Thus providing extremely accurate reports
