  • Patent number: 8224881
    Abstract: A system and method for managing welding information is provided. The invention includes a remote system, a client system and/or a welder. The invention further provides for establishment of a secure connection for transmission of information between the remote system and the client system and/or the welder and/or establishment of access rights of a user/client system/welder. The invention further provides for formulating of a query based upon a request for welding information from a user/welder/client system and searching of data store(s) based at least in part upon the request and/or access rights. The invention further includes filtering of search results and a design of experiment(s) component to facilitate creation of welding procedure(s). The invention further includes calculation of weld costs for potentially suitable welding procedure(s) and communication with a customer's resource planning system in order to facilitate further automation in the industrial environment.
