Capabilities
  • Analyze and visualize utilities networks

    • Use GIS tools to create buffers, overlays, joins, thematic maps, dynamic labels, reports, and queries. Perform radial, upstream/downstream, shortest/multiple/redundant path traces for flow, conduit, and cathodic protection networks. Analyze and report on leaks for an area or the entire network.
  • Configure utilities network models and rules

    • Tailor out-of-the-box commodity-specific data models using simple meta data-based tools to create and manage data structures. Define compatible units with material and labor costs by job type and service region. Define design, symbology, and compatible unit rules to match your company standards.
  • Design district energy networks

    • Create, manage, analyze, estimate costs, and report on as-built asset information and design plans for extensions, repairs, renewals, and maintenance activities. Layout single, two-pipe, and multi-pipe networks for steam-based and water-based district energy systems. Achieve engineering-grade precision with MicroStation-based smart placement and editing.
  • Design electric distribution networks

    • Layout your primary, secondary, and public lighting networks. Achieve engineering-grade precision with MicroStation-based smart placement and editing. Design above- and below-ground network assets with detailed models of conduits and their cables. Define rules to ensure designs adhere to standards.
  • Design gas distribution networks

    • Layout main and service pipe networks as well as cathodic protection networks. Achieve engineering-grade precision with MicroStation-based smart placement and editing. Export layouts to other Bentley products to model and analyze the performance of your network design.
  • Design wastewater networks

    • Layout sewer, storm, and combined sewer/storm networks. Achieve engineering-grade precision with MicroStation-based smart placement and editing. Use 2D profile tools to check elevation grades. Export layouts to other Bentley products to model and analyze the performance of your network design.
  • Design water distribution networks

    • Layout main and lateral networks. Achieve engineering-grade precision with MicroStation-based smart placement and editing. Use 2D profile tools to check elevation grades and find preferred routing. Export layouts to other Bentley products to model and analyze the performance of your network design.
  • Estimate material and work costs

    • Get real-time cost feedback on each design decision through dynamic cost estimates. Create detailed cost breakdowns of labor, materials, and equipment at each work location and for the entire design. Compare costs of design alternatives to find the least-cost design meeting the project requirements.
  • Integrate with work management systems

    • Integrate design work with enterprise-level planning to avoid budget and schedule issues. Configure a two-way connection with the most common enterprise work management systems. Use standard message-based interfaces to implement and maintain the integration with less effort.
  • Maintain utilities network models and maps

    • Employ a full-featured utilities GIS based on the proven Bentley Map platform. Speed edits with intelligent GIS features and automated tools that apply your standards and business rules. Use the tight integration between your design system and GIS to avoid rework and ensure accurate as-built status.
  • Manage design workflows and approvals

    • Create, assign, manage, and approve work orders in stand-alone mode or through integration with your work management system. Define dashboards and reports to help managers track project status and progress. Avoid delays with automatic status updates, approval requests, and e-mail integration.
  • Synchronize design versions with enterprise GIS

    • Create new projects and study future projects without harming data integrity. Use short and long transactions as well as multi-user editing to look at multiple options. Resolve conflicts for graphical and non-graphical data and use reports to compare the costs of design options.
