Together, PROFIS Engineering and RAM Structural System facilitate a seamless data transfer, saving users time and enhancing their precision.
FREMONT, CA: The strength of a design depends as much on its creation as on its implementation. The process—the sum of time, effort, and attempt at addressing the given design problem—displays the care a designer is willing to take and the depth to which he is willing to go on behalf of the customer. A suitable method will pretty nearly guarantee a good result. Hilti North America, a global leader in innovative tools, technology, software, and services for the commercial construction industry, has integrated the cloud-based PROFIS Engineering Suite software with Bentley's RAM Structural System to streamline the base plate design workflow for PROFIS Engineering Suite users. The cooperation with Bentley Systems, the infrastructure engineering software provider, enables structural engineers and designers to move designs between the two programs more quickly and precisely.
"Our customers have requested integrations between their structural analysis software and PROFIS Engineering to increase user productivity while ensuring accuracy of their design," states David Crawford, director of technical marketing and application solutions at Hilti North America. "We are eager to align with an organization like Bentley that shares our values in providing solutions that move the industry forward. Integrated with RAM Structural System to deliver a seamless experience further enables our customers to simplify the entire anchor design process from start to finish, while delivering considerable time savings for each design. This is yet another example of Hilti listening to our users and providing additional value that benefits the customer's bottom line."
Now, RAM Structural System and PROFIS Engineering collaborate to improve the workflow and simplify the process of designing base plate anchors. A user-friendly cloud-based program, PROFIS Engineering Suite, facilitates the calculations and analysis of the many aspects of a steel-to-concrete connection, including the base plate and anchors, with fewer iterations and complete documentation. RAM Structural System's connection with PROFIS Engineering's design capabilities enables users to input, design, and export anchor and base plate designs with correctness and optimal efficiency. With only a few clicks, PROFIS Engineering can get all the data required for the baseplate and connection design, reducing the requirement for manual data transfer. By improving your workflow, this technique will save you up to one hour for every design.
"At Bentley, we are always looking for ways to increase our users' engineering productivity and accuracy," comments Josh Taylor, senior director of structural product management at Bentley Systems. "We are excited to give our RAM Structural System users the additional benefit of a seamless interface with Hilti PROFIS Engineering to improve accuracy and save time for their structural steel-to-concrete connection designs."
