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.

  • Instant messaging between users, notifications and alerts

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.

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 also easy to add data to WeldTrace. You can also bring your own data and files with our easy to use wizards. 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 user's role.
  • Tags to manage fabricated items with multiple drawings
  • Drawings with version control
  • Materials repository manage heat numbers & MTCs
  • Project documents with version control
  • Test reports for NDE and visual inspection
  • Use welding procedures from the central WPS module 
  • Welders are stored and managed in a central repository 

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, through to completion and testing. WeldTrace will automatically create repair welds based on the project settings. 
Welding supervisors can manage the allocation of welders to weld joints, material traceability, marking welds as complete and then to arrange inspection and NDE.
Welding inspectors can perform stage-wise inspection of welds from fit-up, checking and recording during welding if the welding parameters were in accordance with the WPS and post weld inspection. 
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. Users can exchange instant messages that will help them complete welds or organize inspection and testing. 
WeldTrace is a complete platform for managing all the welding activities.
  • Built-in workflow for weld lifecycle - planning to testing
  • NDE module to create requests, record results and defects, handle repairs, penalty, tracer and sampling
  • Visual inspection for stage-wise inspection of welds
  • Work packages to group welds and manage them
  • Traveler, control sheet, job card print options 
  • Instant messaging for communication between project team members
  • Welder who is not qualified or out of continuity prevented from being used
  • Welder continuity is recorded automatically

Welding project management simplified!

With WeldTrace, managing welding projects or jobs will be so much easier. The project users' roles and access can be defined that will give them access to information and allow or deny them to edit data. History reports will show who has changed what and it is very useful to demonstrate compliance during a client audit. 
It is very easy to add data. In addition to forms, WeldTrace has Excel style multiple entry sheets as well as wizards to import data in spreadsheets. Files can be uploaded in bulk and will be matched intelligently with the relevant data. 
A separate document control software is not required. Instant messaging will allow users to communicate easily. You can generate welding shop travelers or work packages as PDF files.

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 data to be included in which 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 as a single PDF file. 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.
