Engineered Software, Inc. Publishes Verification & Validation Document for PIPE-FLO® Professional

Lacey, WA, December 12, 2007 --( After much anticipation, Engineered Software, Inc. published their 2007 PIPE-FLO Professional Verification and Validation document. This fifty page booklet documents the various tests and calculations performed by PIPE-FLO® Professional along with acceptance criteria for those industries requiring such standards, for example the nuclear power industry.

“It was a team effort and we definitely have a few of our long-time customers to thank for helping us put this document together,” said Ray Hardee, P.E. and Chief Engineer for Engineered Software, Inc. “Our customers are loyal and we like to provide products that they request whenever possible, and this formal documentation will be a big help them.”

Verification and Validation (V&V) is the process of checking that, in this case, a software program meets the specifications it was designed for and that it fulfills its intended purposes. PIPE-FLO Professional is a fluid flow analysis software that simulates the operation of piping systems and shows the interaction of pumps, compressors, pipelines, control valves and other components in a fluid or industrial gas system.

“We have always tested our software quite rigorously, but this is our first formally published documentation to be used specifically for verification and validation,” said Carolyn Popp, Chief Technical Officer of Engineered Software. “PIPE-FLO does some major calculations, and we want our users to know that they can expect our software to reliably provide accurate results,” she added.

The 2007 PIPE-FLO Professional Verification and Validation documentation also comes with a consultation and interactive presentation explaining the V&V process along with electronic test systems and working spreadsheets. This whole package will be available to purchase for customers who require formal V&V documentation for the PIPE-FLO Professional Software.
