IBAS is an online software that can give you the weight and sections of your steel structure, using only simple questions and no more than 5 minutes of time spent.

For a small/medium size steel company, when a client asks for a budget of a portal frame building without a structural design, the company has only two options. Use the internal engineering resources spending time and money of the team or use the company experience to define some steel sections in order to build a total weight for a building. In both options the company uses the internal resources to design the structure and do all the structural elements measurements, spending between 2 hours to 8 hours of their technical team and taking the risk of being heavier and more expensive than competitors. In extreme cases, an external engineer needs to be hired in order to give the weight and quantities of steel.

IBAS can give you the weight measurements of the structure and the steel profiles to be used. With simple questions that everyone can answer, like the building dimensions and location, IBAS returns a complete list of quantities of the structure so every steel company can have support data to build the structure budget. IBAS is designed to be used by every person related to the budgeting, even if it’s not from the technical team.

After an internal comparison between the designs of experienced engineers and IBAS, we achieve an average of -1,4% less weight in IBAS. If we compare with the designs of non-experienced engineers, usually the difference is much bigger. IBAS is a tool for every company, from the big ones to the small ones, with a big impact on internal resources optimization.

IBAS is the best tool on the Portuguese and French market with this specific propose. Check an example report from IBAS in Portuguese here or French here, and IBAS website
