BSD SpecLink(R)-E Software Demonstration

ATLANTA, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Building Systems Design, Inc. (BSD) today announced live demonstrations of the final beta release of its new BSD SpecLink-E (SLE) software at Construct2009, a national trade show for the commercial construction industry being held this week in Indianapolis. SpecLink-E is the successor to BSD's award-winning BSD SpecLink+ specification-writing software currently being used by thousands of design professionals nationwide. SLE is client-server software that uses Microsoft's SQL Server database management system to support multi-user collaboration over a local area network or a wide area network between multiple offices. The SLE software is also easily installed on a single computer for standalone operation by a single user.

SpecLink-E will participate in the building information modeling (BIM) process through integration with CAD environments such as Revit Architecture 2009 via an integration manager called BSD LinkMan-E(TM) (LME), also in development at BSD with a patent pending. With LinkMan-E and SpecLink-E in place on the same computer or the same network, relevant project data can be transferred in both directions between the CAD environment and the specifications environment. Users will also be able to set SLE so that data from the drawings will inform the specifier about product choices, or the software can be set to automatically select appropriate sections and "pre-edit" the specifications, based on decisions made in the CAD environment. In addition to showing its current products, BSD will demonstrate linking between BSD SpecLink-E and Autodesk's Revit at Construct2009 in Indianapolis, June 17-19, 2009.

SpecLink-E has been designed to allow real-time updating of its master database over the Internet at any convenient time. The master database updating can be scheduled in off hours with little or no disruption to the specification preparation process. Updates to the individual user's client software take advantage of Microsoft technology called ClickOnce installation. This allows the client software on each user's computer to update itself automatically from a central location on the network once the site manager decides to make the update available to users at that site. As with the previous generation SpecLink+ software, data updates to SLE will not overwrite user modifications in any existing projects, including so-called "office master" projects, because of the product's unique database structure. Project-specific information entered by a user is stored in separate project overlay tables that are automatically merged with the master database content when a project is viewed or printed.

The production-ready beta version of SLE being demonstrated this week in Indianapolis is now being distributed to current BSD SpecLink subscribers, together with updates to BSD SpecLink+ and BSD CostLink/AE.
