Piping Design

Piping Design, like other technician specialties, has a Body of Knowledge (BOK) based in company standards, field experience, engineering knowledge and applicable "ilities". Beyond drafting and CAD tools, this knowledge is acquired by reading customer standards and specs, field visits, correcting the work of others, mentoring by checkers and managers, vendor presentations and other means. The classical metric of piping knowledge is "years of experience."

There are two distinct trajectories into piping: Designer and Engineer. The piping engineer specializes in applied physics and chemistry. The piping designer specializes in applied "ilities," i.e., fabricatability, constructability, operability, maintainability, etc. This article deals with the piping designer.
