Schneider Electric’s release of ArcFM Designer 11.1.4 leverages the latest ArcGIS platform capabilities with its support of the utility network, as well as the utility and pipeline data model (UPDM). ArcFM Designer 11.1.4 is the next generation of graphic work design, providing engineers with a purpose-built application that supports the entire design lifecycle with simplicity, efficiency and intelligence. The software supports gas networks with functionality that seamlessly adjusts based on the user’s design. Users can now efficiently sketch new gas assets, abandon existing assets, generate material lists and update the GIS with new design information without needing to redraw. Designer 11.1.4 serves as the primary design tool for a utility through significant new functionality including support the ability to send a design to ArcFM Editor XI and ArcFM Session Manager, further digitising the design and construction processes. ArcFM Job Services provides configurable triggers to control when the ArcFM Session and corresponding ArcGIS geodatabase version are created for a design, resulting in fewer outstanding versions and less overhead in the geodatabase. ArcFM Designer XI is part of the ArcFM Solution XI Series, an ecosystem of applications that streamline the design and construction workflow, enabling utilities to get work done more efficiently.
