All structures are analyzed & designed according codal requirements using manual calculations or by the use of many different analysis and design software like STAAD PRO, ETABS etc. used in various design offices. But it has been found that analysis & design procedure becomes very tedious and time taking process when performed manually. So to overcome this problem these days most of the analysis and designing work are done by the use of software meant for this work. Different softwares are based on different methods of analysis and design, due to which final results may vary from actual results. This paper will check the degree of variations between the results of those obtained by two different design softwares i.e. STAAD PRO and ETABS. An appropriate and economical way of analysis and design of the structure will also be discussed in this paper with the help of an example of a multistory building.
