Getting delayed in traffic at 2AM on a weekday night on a major highway isn't all that common, but when it does happen it's often due to some gargantuan industrial equipment being escorted to its destination or waypoint. Piping designers are often also industrial plant layout designers, meaning that they work towards determining how a facility is laid out and the units within are configured. This includes the spacing and locations of pipe racks, equipment, buildings, roadways, storage tanks, etc. It's all well planned, and there now exist programs to visualize construction - animation type software that can simplify to some extent the logistics of millions of pieces fitting together. For example, different sequences of large equipment erection and placement can be simulated to discover the most efficient order offsite activities.

Lee College in Baytown has rejoined SPED.  We are glad to have them as an Academic Institution Member.  Lee's Instrumentation and Process Technology programs are excellent covering as SPED does, not only the 'How To', but the 'Why' in piping design.  Welcome, Lee College!
