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
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
