Bentley Systems' OpenPlant software offerings enable real-time sharing and interoperability of data across different systems

Bentley Systems has added three products to its OpenPlant software for plant creation based on an open data model. The plant offerings are designed to enable real-time, seamless sharing and interoperability of data and information across different organizations and systems using an internationally recognized standard.

The three Bentley OpenPlant products include:

  • Bentley OpenPlant Modeler V8i — 3-D plant modeling software that uses the ISO 15926 data model. OpenPlant Modeler V8i is designed to support workflows that combine commonly used software standards, including DGN, RealDWG, point clouds and PDF
  • Bentley OpenPlant ModelServer V8i — plant design server software that manages both files and components
  • Bentley OpenPlant Isometrics Manager V8i — isometrics generation software that extracts and incorporates complete intelligence from 3-D plant models in real time

The OpenPlant Modeler V8i provides functionality for piping and equipment, and serves other disciplines involved in real-world plant design projects through Bentley’s V8i intraoperable applications. OpenPlant Modeler V8i offers infrastructure organizations the ability to:

  • Create 3-D models using MicroStation V8i user interface
  • Reuse corporate standards, including piping catalogs and specifications from PDS, AutoPLANT and PlantSpace
  • Review and augment existing PDS designs, through ISO 15926 protocols and/or i-models, to escape proprietary lock-in

OpenPlant ModelServer V8i can automatically migrate PDS models, piping catalogs and piping specifications so data can be reused for design modifications. It lets infrastructure organizations:

  • Empower individual users to check out the information they need to work on and maintain tight version control for all deliverables
  • Create reports from any and all project components
  • Simultaneously manage all files and components on a project
  • Administer project contributions across disciplines

OpenPlant Isometrics Manager V8i provides management control capabilities for pipe models and isometrics from OpenPlant, Bentley plant products and PDS. It offers users:

  • Automatic versioning and global distribution of isometrics using ProjectWise
  • The ability to create isometrics that contain component information from multiple sources
