Does anybody have any input on how long roughly it should take to develop a WPS per D14.3 any input would be awesome thanks.
Regardless of the code, there are many other "variables" that come into play.
Materials, Joints, Code requirements, company requirements, inspection and testing, documenting, reviewing and many more come into play. Each one of those can take different amounts of time. Mix those up with someone new to the process, and the time goes up.
Why do you ask?
Have a good day.
How long is a piece of string ?
As Gerald has noted there are so many variables involved it is pretty much impossible to answer your question.
A lot depends on the client and how soon they need the WPS.
I am bending a test set today, August 27th, that was welded May 8th. The sample waited for RT, lingered for annealing, waited for cutting, waited for machining, waited for tensile testing, and now it is ready to bend.
That's pretty quick in comparison to a procedure for NAVSEA that took nearly 2-years before it was approved for production.
