You've created design using utility design software, but now you wonder if you can exchange the model data with advanced engineering tools to enforce regulatory and integrity checks. This lecture will attempt to show you how to integrate a utility model used for distribution, transmission, and substation into advanced engineering tools like O-Calc, SPIDA, Robot Structural Analysis software, and Advanced Steel software. We will also discuss the capabilities of APIs to exchange data between design and analytical tools so that you can plan your integration and extend your utility's workflow without copy/paste data.
- Learn how to identify opportunities and challenges for exchanging design models with engineering tools
- Explore and learn how to send model information to external tools
- Identify the workflows that will benefit utilities by this integration
- Learn how to use the Utility Solution APIs for integrated workflow
