Industrial Database Solutions

Quote Software now has available for purchase as an add-in update to our mechanical estimating software a labor-by-joint industrial database.  It allows the user to takeoff as they do now but to also count shop and field joints to account for the labor.

The new database update adds the following materials to our core of 75,000 items, and includes pipe, fittings, flanges and valves for:

Chrome Moly (P1, P5, P9, P11, P12, P22, P91)
Carbon Steel (A106B, A53, A106C)
Stainless Steel (A312 and A778 for 304, 304L, 316, 316L)

We include the following for all of the above: Sch 40, 60, 80, 100, 120,140, 160, XH, and XXH as well as Sch 5 and 10 for SS and the minimum wall thicknesses (0.5”, 0.75”, 1.0”, 1.5”, 2”, 3”, 4”, and 6”) for Chrome Moly.   While many of the Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel items were in our original database, the new industrial database allows the users to assign the labor task to the joint and not to the pipe, fittings and valves (as MCA does).  That being said, you will still be able to assign labor to those items, which you might use to account for material handling.

Once you are done with the takeoff, you can export the BOM to Excel and email to a vendor and later import it back into our program.  We also will report diameter inches with the shop and field joints.
