How to Create a WPS in Shopfloor®
A Welding Procedure Specification or WPS is a document that contains welder instructions on how to make a particular weld. It describes all the essential, non-essential, and for impact tested materials, supplementary essential variables required to perform this task. Non-essential variables are those variables that do not affect the mechanical properties of the weld. Both essential and supplementary essential variables do affect the weld’s mechanical properties. The WPS is derived from and references one or more supporting Procedure Qualification Record (PQR) documents.
This tutorial video shows how to create a WPS from an existing PQR using Codeware’s cloud-based welding management software, Shopfloor.
