Plant Design WorkSuite

Multi-discipline plant design software

Complete conceptual and detailed design software in one affordable bundle

Having the right tools when you need them is essential to meeting project demands. Whether you’re doing conceptual design for new water treatment facility, creating detailed piping designs and producing isometric drawings, creating electrical systems for process plants or drawing P&IDs, Plant Design WorkSuite has your needs covered. The bundle includes Bentley’s purpose-built plant design solutions, such as OpenPlant Modeler, OpenPlant PID, Bentley Raceway and Cable Management, OpenPlant Support Engineering, and more.

WHAT IS PLANT DESIGN WORKSUITE?

Plant Design WorkSuite is a collection of plant design software solutions that helps to deliver mechanical, process, electrical and structural engineers and designers the tools to design virtually any process plant project.   Whether designing power plants, water treatment facilities, industrial facilities, creating detailed support assemblies or drawing schematics for new concept, Plant Design WorkSuite has tools to go from concept, to detail, to deliverables, to visualization, to digital delivery.  Plant Design WorkSuite allows firms to grow in services without the worry of costly new software.

  • OpenPlant Modeler

    OpenPlant Modeler

    Included in Plant Design WorkSuite, OpenPlant Modeler is a 3D plant design and modeling software that enables you to accurately and rapidly perform 3D plant designs of any size. Using OpenPlant Modeler, your project team can work remotely on the go or in a connected environment via iTwin technology. OpenPlant Modeler supports many data types such as DGN, DWG, JT, point clouds, and PDFs so that your design and review process remains flexible.

     
  • OpenPlant PID
  • Computer screen of OpenPlant PID showing P&ID Intelligence Viewer with plant information

    OpenPlant PID

    Included in lant Design WorkSuite, OpenPlant PID allows you to generate P&IDs with components verified against valid piping specifications. Computational drafting routines are used to speed drawing generation. Task-based navigation and other advanced user interface features make the system easy to learn and use.

     
  • OpenPlant Isometrics Manager
  • Computer screen of OpenPlant Isometrics Manager showing plant documentation

    OpenPlant Isometrics Manager

    Included in Plant Design WorkSuite, OpenPlant Isometrics Manager allows isometrics to be independently produced by document control or other supporting project personnel, freeing piping designers to focus on design activities. By managing isometric production through project-based rules, the software provides users with a way to easily generate isometrics from inside OpenPlant Modeler, OpenPlant based iModel, directly from connected iTwin project or other sources using a simplified interface, without the need for a complex design application. It also enables project teams to output in either DGN or RealDWG formats.

     
  • Bentley Raceway and Cable Management
  • Computer screen of Bentley Raceway and Cable Management showing six different 3D models on one screen

    Bentley Raceway and Cable Management

    Included in Plant Design WorkSuite, Bentley Raceway and Cable Management allow designing complex raceway and cable systems in integrated environment and includes wide range of design and documentation tasks typically involved. Bentley Raceway and Cable Management provide the complete layout, routing, and material estimating functions in a single, integrated system. It creates the framework for an effective workflow spanning all phases of the design, from initial concept to detailed layout and construction. Fast track your next project with automated workflows for conceptual and detailed design phases.
