Bentley’s Integrated Structural Modeling (ISM) allows structural engineers and designers to share structural engineering project information among modeling, analysis, design, drafting, and detailing software applications.
More details on the philosophy behind ISM and how the process works can be found HERE and HERE. The chart below shows how structural engineering and BIM software brands interoperate with one another using ISM.
