Integrated Structural Modeling enables you to exchange data, synchronize revisions, track progress, compare alternatives, and publish deliverables.
Do you use separate software applications for modeling, analysis, design, drawing, detailing, and BIM interoperability? Normally, firms use three or more solutions from different software vendors, along with spreadsheets and other in-house solutions, with each product being specialized for a particular task in the workflow. If you must work with a subcontractor or a customer who uses a different software, your situation is further complicated.
But with interoperability, you can avoid all of the inefficiencies in your process, such as different formats, data re-entry, manual redlines, tracking files, engineer-drafter redline loops, BIM integration, addressing changes, and last-minute surprises. Bentley’s solution is an open platform technology to facilitate and address the major challenges of structural interoperability.
Bentley’s Integrated Structural Modeling (ISM) functionality offers interoperability across your engineering and design teams, enabling you to exchange data, synchronize revisions, track progress, compare alternatives, and publish deliverables.
You can share your structural engineering project information across all of your structural modeling, analysis, design, drafting, and detailing applications.
By sharing information, you can save time by avoiding the duplication of steps in each product. You can also create an accurate finished product by detecting any clashes during the design phase instead of during construction.
Take advantage of the key capabilities that ISM provides:
Each application that links to ISM must develop and deploy a Product-ISM Link. This key component may be embedded in the application executable or provided as an independent component. This link enables you to:
In this video you will learn how to:
ISM offers significant improvements to your project profitability. For example, Gustavo Vasconcellos, Director and Partner, FG Consultoria Empresarial, noticed improvements to project execution time by about 60%, structural modeling by 80%, and executive design by 50%, in addition to avoiding construction phase errors. For more information, check out the Project Summary.
In addition to being an open platform technology, ISM is free to our customers.
