ffs subscription buttonBechtFFS software is an API 579-1/ASME FFS-1, 2016 edition compliant, web-based software designed to assist operators/owners in evaluating equipment items which have developed defects in service. The quantitative calculations performed in BechtFFS assess the structural integrity of the flawed component and ultimately provide a recommendation whether the component should be taken out of service and retired or repaired, or is fit for continued service.  The software’s calculation methodology was developed by Becht’s API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 experts. Our FFS experts include contributors to the API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 guideline document. A number of our FFS experts are current or past members of the API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 committee, including several committee vice-chairs.

BechtFFS software is easy to use, with a paged format that provides logical input sequences and comprehensive pop-up help for all input pages.  This web-based format allows users to begin using it immediately once logon credentials are approved. The software can be used from any device with an Internet connection.

Finally, the web-based software ensures that users are always working with the most up-to-date version of the software.

The software generates a series of reports for each assessment module, from summary to detailed reports documenting the outcome of the assessment. The user can select the format of the report from HTML, Excel, Word and PDF.

BechtFFS is a web-based software application service custom-built on Microsoft’s Windows Server, Internet information services (IIS), ASP.NET, and SQL Server technologies.  Reports are generated using SQL Server Reporting Services and are available in HTML, MS-Excel, PDF, or MS-Word format.  See figures below for samples of the reports.

Paid-for-FFS consultation also is available from the software’s dashboard, so that you can quickly connect with one of our FFS experts. We guarantee a quick response!
