A minimum branch thickness table for is an efficient tool to determine whether further inspection of pipe branches is required. Many calculations are required to make these tables for the different pipe sizes, thicknesses and branch pipe size combinations.

Together with the customer the governing design conditions were defined and the pipe material. Red-Bag software engineers developed additional methods to the software to generate the calculations and the report. The report was exported to spreadsheet format.

The software development and the creation of the reports was done within a few weeks. With regular tools this would have taken months up to half a year to create the reports with over 8000 calculations. (Vopak)
