Software designed for AECO professionals acquired
Bentley has acquired SpecWave software, designed to help professionals configure structured text content for projects.
Bentley Systems Inc. has acquired SpecWave software that helps architectural, engineering, construction, and operations (AECO) professionals author and configure structured text content, including engineering specifications and related codes and standards. SpecWave makes specifications an integral aspect of information modeling, creating text objects to be change - managed by Bentley’s eB Insight – facilitating and enforcing enterprise, project, and owner standards, and delivering documents that are rigorous, controlled, and connected throughout the project and asset lifecycle, to save time and improve quality and performance.
SpecWave provides optimized editing for specification writers, with advanced attributes and tagging of content enforced by templates, and specification-driven process support for submittals, quality assurance, and other business workflows. SpecWave enables users to create, administer, and automate complex specifications and other content as highly portable SPECX files that can be leveraged in familiar workflows, exchanged as i-models, and now managed within ProjectWise and AssetWise.

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.
