Welder Performance Qualification Software
C-spec automates WPQ creation in compliance with the latest ASME Section IX and AWS D1.1 code requirements.
The most reliable code checking supported by ASME, AWS and ISO committee members. Your welder performance qualification record will be instantly recognized as a code compliant industry standard.
Welder Performance Qualification (WPQ) creation and management is simple, fast and accurate with automatic code checking and links to code related software modules. The latest software update applies code rules published in the 2019 Edition of ASME Section IX (including 2020 Errata) and in the 2020 Edition of AWS D1.1.
Only C-spec's WeldOffice® offers superior up to date code compliance and code rules verification supported by active code committee members. Your welder performance qualification will be instantly recognized as a code compliant industry standard.
User enable/disable code checking for ASME IX, AWS D1.1 and ISO 9606 provides the flexibility of expert assisted or self-guided WPQ creation.
C-spec automaticaly updates the software to reflect the latest requirements. The periodic update schedule depends on each code and standard publication date. The updates are always published before the code mandatory date goes into effect, usually 6 months folowing the publication date. The latest software update applies code rules published in the 2019 Edition of ASME Section IX (including 2020 Errata) and in the 2020 Edition of AWS D1.1.
Universal WPQ multi-process forms supporting multiple codes, including ASME IX, ISO 15614, AWS D1.1, D1.2, D1.3, D1.4, D1.5, D1.6, D9.1, API 1104 and other standards.

English and metric units.
User defined multi-level security access with secure electronic signatures.
Program uses dynamic forms for data input. Dynamic forms prevent entry of non-relevant information to minimize potential introduction of errors. These forms grow dynamically based on the information that you enter. For example, unless you select a process that uses gas, no information pertinent to gas will appear. Dynamic forms follow a natural flow of information acquisition. They are logically organized to manage complex relations and to present it in the most simplified manner.
Selectable pipe schedules are provided for Carbon steel and alloys (ANSI-B36.10), Stainless steel (ANSI-B36.19). Tube gauge/thickness table is included. Schedules are in both US Customary and Metric units. Non standard Monster and MAV pipe test coupons are included.
Supports groove welds, fillet welds, overlays and stud welding.
