Development and the use of software for structural engineering are not regulated in Germany. For quality assurance, there are no specific guidelines or general rules for the user or manufacturer side. Poor quality of software solutions as well as the trend towards more complex structures not only produce unnecessary discussions between the designer, test engineer and contractor on the relevance of the results of a structural software, but can also lead to damages to the buildings, in limiting cases up to structural failure. The application of the standard helps to minimise shortcomings in the software-based detection of the bearing capacity and serviceability, to meet higher quality standards and thereby allowing for a higher level of acceptance of the software-based safety testing in international competition.
