General purpose computer software packages are being used more frequently in the hydraulic design of pipeline systems. The areas where the use of such packages are advantageous over earlier methods are addressed. An example illustrates the efficiency and increased confidence in the results for design problems involving system integrity, operations and control. The man-machine interfaces involved in the input and the output process are then addressed, followed by a discussion of reliability and quality assurance issues of importance in any use of engineering application programs.
