Total welding project management software

WeldTrace is a total project management software for fabrication projects of all complexities. Be it a small job or a very large project, WeldTrace can be configured to handle the project requirements or client specifications. WeldTrace's project module has been built to handle all codes with its own workflow which is very easy to learn. A single person can manage a job or hundreds of users can collaborate in a large project with each user's role allowing them to handle specific tasks. Experience the power and simplicity of WeldTrace - the end to end welding management software.
  • Manage a few welds to tens of thousands with ease
  • Visual inspection and NDE modules
  • Manage all the drawings with version control
  • Repositories for materials and consumables
  • Project calendar and Gantt chart views
  • Instant messaging between users, notifications and alerts
  • Rich dashboard and data analysis tools
  • Full traceability for each weld
  • Weld mapping and dimension mark-up

Weld mapping

WeldTrace offers a weld mapping tool to mark-up welds on drawings. It is a pictorial mark-up tool that will allow you to select a shape, colour and simply draw. Once a weld number is entered, subsequent weld numbers will be automatically entered in the sequence. You can also set attributes such as size and weld type. Welds can be automatically created for the welds mapped on the drawing. You may also leave notes on the drawing that won't be created as welds. In the view weld map mode, users can navigate to the welds from the weld map. All the traceability data for every weld like heat number, WPS, welders and so on are taken care of by WeldTrace automatically. WeldTrace also offers a module where dimensions can be recorded and you can produce as-built drawings.
  • Weld mapping tool 
  • Weld numbers marked up in sequence automatically
  • Create welds automatically
  • Pick attributes of welds like size, joint or weld type
  • View weld map and navigate to weld
  • Produce high quality weld map prints
  • Edit and move weld map annotations
  • Transfer weld map annotations when drawings are revised

Repositories for project data

WeldTrace provides separate repositories or areas in each project for tags, drawings, materials, consumables, documents, and test reports. There are common areas or modules for WPS & PQR, welders, fitters and machines where data can be stored and managed centrally that can be used across all the projects. It is easy to add data. WeldTrace provides a form style interface for adding one data at a time, an Excel spreadsheet style interface to add many lines of data and bring in a large set of data by uploading a file. You can also bulk upload file attachments like drawings that will get matched with the appropriate record. Repositories are access controlled with read, add, edit or no access based on the role.
  • Tags to manage fabricated items with multiple drawings
  • Drawings with version control
  • Materials repository manage heat numbers, MTCs, inventory control
  • Filler metals area 
  • Project documents with version control
  • Area to store all the test reports
  • Use welding procedures from the WPS module for all the projects
  • Welders are stored and managed in a central repository for all the projects

Welding workflow management made easy

WeldTrace has a built-in work flow for managing a weld's lifecycle from planning to allocating WPS and welders, stage-wise inspection, completion, different types of NDE, retests, automatic creation of repair welds, penalties, tracers, storing photographs of welds, all for individual welds or groups of welds, grouped by drawings or tags. You can use all of the features or some of them. WeldTrace offers the flexibility to manage your welding projects that would suit your company's culture. Calendar, Gantt chart, dashboard, alerts, progress bars and status counts will make managing fabrication projects that much easier.
  • Built-in workflow for weld lifecycle
  • Role based access control
  • Plan, allocate, complete, test, inspect
  • Visual inspection by stage
  • NDE module to request, test, handle repairs, penalty, tracer, sampling
  • NDE settings for project and drawings
  • Work packs to group welds and plan
  • Traveler, control sheet, job card print options for hard copies to the shop
  • Instant messaging for communication between project team members
  • Welder who is not qualified or out of continuity prevented from being used
  • Welder continuity is done automatically

Final project documentation or turnover packs, easy!

You can generate the project data book, which is also known as the turnover pack or the manufacturer's data report (MDR) for a few drawings or for the whole project with just a few clicks. You can choose what sections to show and in what order and even what should appear in the header and footer. WeldTrace will do the magic and create a PDF file that will contain the table of contents, bookmarks, data in tables, file attachments in relevant sections, all neatly stitched in. Imagine how much time you can save with such a feature. If you missed something or need to generate multiple turnover packs, few more clicks and you get the reports in next to no time. 
  • Produce turnover packs in a few clicks
  • Data shown in tables with links to files
  • Table of contents and section separators
  • Headers and footers can be customized
  • Include only what you need to show
  • Get through audits confidently
  • Archive completed projects to prevent them getting accessed and edited
