ISM (Integrated Structural Model)

Bentley’s Integrated Structural Model (ISM) is a technology for sharing structural engineering project information among structural modeling, analysis, design, drafting and detailing applications. ISM is similar to Building Information Modeling (BIM), but focuses on the information that is important in the design, construction and modification of the load bearing components of buildings, bridges and other structures.

The following describes the integration between OpenBuildings Designer and the ISM (Integrated Structural Model) application Structural Synchronizer.
