Bentley Systems extends electrical system design portfolio
By acquiring the promis•e product line last month, Bentley Systems has enhanced its electrical design portfolio.
Bentley Systemsrates electrical system schematics and supporting documentation.
The software, in combination with MicroStation, MicroStation PowerDraft, or AutoCAD, also makes the electrical design process more accurate by virtue of more than 2 million up-to-date parts in its
With promis•e, Bentley will be better able to respond to a growing need among building, plant, civil, and geospatial infrastructure professionals for more comprehensive solutions incorporating electrical wiring, diagramming, and drawing production, said company officials.
Commenting on this latest Bentley acquisition, Bhupinder Singh, senior vice president, Bentley Software, said, “Automating the design of electrical control systems results in important efficiencies, leading to increased professional productivity. But especially, Bentley user organizations have wanted automated electrical design to be fully integrated with other disciplines and workflows across the infrastructure lifecycle. They know that this advancement would multiply, many times over, their productivity improvements."

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
