The software for determining charged track parameters of the Spin Physics Detector (SPD) experiment on the future Nuclotron based Ion Collider fAcility (NICA) collider (JINR, Dubna) is presented along with the results obtained. The use of this program allows prompt simulations of various magnetic field configurations and the tracking system of the SPD experiment to determine the optimal structure for better track reconstruction.
