The PCC application uses databases to store and retrieve data. There are mainly two databases: one is the standards database with all the dimensions of the components and material properties, the other one is the project database which stores the user input of the projects and pipe classes.

The databases can be local computer databases or server databases. Red-Bag uses for the development the Sqlite database for local storage and the MySQL or MarianDB for server databases. It is advisable to use a  central server database when working in a projectteam or for larger companies with pipe classes for different process units.

Consult Red-Bag for more information on use cases.
