Developing need of "chemical process design software package" is analyzed to put forward the total design thought of the "software package" based on multi-agent(component) technology. It is regarded that the "software package" should have the kernel functions of intelligence creation, analyzing computation, design expression and material statistics; the system configuration is composed of 3 subsystems (components) as process flow simulation, piping material statistics system of the process and design management. Suggestions on the software package development in the future are put forward.
