Abstract: A piping support is an element installed to maintain the stability of a piping system in the design process of a construction plant project. The type and size of the components are determined according to pipe size and pipe load values. Pipe supports change depending on the type and characteristics of the fluid flowing through the pipe, the weight of the pipe and the installation environment. In particular, in the order production environment, the design is frequently changed at the request of the ordering party. Whenever a design change occurs, the type and specifications of the piping supports are changed. When the piping is changed, selection of the piping support must be repeated, which consumes a large amount of time and money. This study proposes a method for constructing a portable document format drawing and an optimised design bill of material without two-dimensional drawing design for piping supports that are frequently changed. This is achieved by a programme according to the characteristics of the piping.
