Simplify the challenges of traditional pole loading methods.

Utilities can streamline the engineering and design processes, and simplify the challenges of traditional pole loading methods.

Schneider Electric’s ArcFM Designer XI is a robust design, workflow and asset management solution. Integrated with SPIDA Software’s SPIDAcalc structural analysis software, they enable utilities to validate the safety code compliance of structures while managing risks and optimizing asset investments.

ArcFM Designer XI is the premier choice for GIS-based Graphic Work Design that modernizes the entire design lifecycle. A focused application built specifically for designers and engineers of electric and gas utilities, Designer XI offers only the tools relevant to design – so nothing gets in the way of getting work done. Customers have a broader range of integrated solutions that allow them to complete tasks more efficiently and with better visibility into processes.

    • Works with the Geometric Network or Utility Network, providing a bridge from legacy technology to new technology – whatever your timeline
  • Maximum Productivity
    • Remove features with a simple brushstroke and auto-assign materials and labor
    • Utility customers have experienced +75% reduction in the time required for designing new services
    • An array of engineering analysis tools that automatically solve optimization challenges with sound engineering designs and lowest-cost options
  •  Unmatched Efficiency
    • Each feature mimics actual equipment in the field, enabling faster and more accurate task completion
    • Speed up the design and construction lifecycles to reduce backlogs
    • Enable structural analysis to ensure designs standards are met
  • Streamlined Processes
    • Automate and digitize engineering and design processes
    • Simplify the challenges of traditional pole loading methods while respecting asset integrity
    • Eliminate redundant data entry and reduce time for creating a work packet
  • Built for Design Intelligence
    • Full support for 3-phase electric networks, gas networks and all equipment types so that all jobs can be designed – regardless of complexity
    • Offline Sync Status indicators allow a designer to easily see if offline work is waiting to be synced
    • Configure which attributes from the GIS are viewable and editable in order to support setting attributes during design that are not CU-driven, such as ownership on a pole
