Engineers can use the Automated Network Sizing (ANS) add-on module for AFT Fathom and AFT Arrow to automatically size their piping and ducting systems to reduce weight or energy cost. The software sizes your piping network as an integrated system to ensure you find better design combinations, all while maintaining your design requirements. ANS minimizes system costs such as pipe weight, surface area, or volume to avoid developing a monetary cost database. Use the module to automatically size an initial system while accounting for planned, future expansions. Or, size an expansion for an existing system.
