Design Power Announces the Release of Design++ Version 9.0

San Jose, CA, USA - August 30, 2012 - Design Power, Inc., a new company dedicated to bringing to a larger audience the power of knowledge-based engineering, today announced the availability of its first Design++ software release. Design Power was formed in 2011 when it spun out of Bentley Systems, Incorporated.

Design++ has over 20-year history of supporting high-value design automation and product configuration applications at companies such as NCI Building Systems, General Electric Oil & Gas, Fluor Corporation, and Bühler AG. Design++ is also the foundation for a commercial end-user application product for conceptual plant design: Bentley PlantWise, which has been on the market for 16 years.

Design++ is a knowledge-based engineering platform that significantly simplifies the capture of in-house engineering expertise and integration of legacy systems into design automation and product configuration solutions that boost productivity, improve quality, accelerate delivery, and create a sustainable competitive advantage. Design++ provides a stable and proven design automation and product configuration infrastructure. It is used for automating design and engineering processes for products and systems as diversified as electrical systems, capital equipment, building structures, and process plants.

Design Power President Tapio Karras says, "We focused on making the transition to Design++ 9.0 as easy as possible for the existing users. Design++ 9.0 is backward compatible with previous Design++ versions reducing the upgrade effort to a simple recompile."

Karras continues: "Design++ 9.0 integrates with the latest MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 3) and AutoCAD 2013 (both 32 & 64-bit) versions making the upgrade appealing for users looking to upgrade their CAD system."
