Abstract

[Abstract]: This dissertation is a documentation for the creation of a Structural design, quotation and production support system using parametric CAD tools and national and international standards for fluid storage systems. The project looks at establishing a parametric tool for bolted unanchored panel tanks with the use of SolidWorks's integrated program DriveWorksXpress. The object of which were to, - Develop a feature based bill of materials - Automate engineering and part drawings - Provide an inlet/outlet orientation function - Have a 3D representation of the tank Methods for obtaining these objectives were to use MS Access to develop the bill of materials using a database aspect to retain inputted tank information and with DriveWorksXpress part dimensions could be captured and altered based on user input and standards that govern the construction and design of tanks. Results from which varied as issues arose with capability and programming requirements. Which leaves future work open to a variety of opportunities.
