FUKUI COMPUTER, Inc, the CAD vendor for the construction industry, has entered into a strategic partnership with Bentley Systems to accelerate the adoption of digital workflows in the Japanese construction industry and support the promotion of digital transformation (DX) in the infrastructure field.
In Japan, there are concerns about the increasing shortage of labor in the infrastructure field, which is impacting the ability to take measures to mitigate aging infrastructure. This situation is further aggravated by the intensification and frequent occurrence of natural disasters. To help combat this, FUKUI COMPUTER will leverage the Bentley iTwin platform to augment its cloud-based data sharing service CIMPHONY Plus with 3D/4D visualization, simulation, and digital twin capabilities. The company will launch a digital solution that supports the entire infrastructure lifecycle, spanning project management, design, construction, and maintenance. FUKUI COMPUTER will also launch TREND ROAD Designer for road design, a new 3D application that will leverage Bentley’s OpenRoads Designer, an industry standard for road concept, design, construction, and operations.
By entering into this strategic partnership, FUKUI COMPUTER will provide solutions for digital transformation (DX) in the infrastructure field promoted by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT), leveraging Bentley’s cutting-edge digital technology. The partnership aims to contribute to the improvement of productivity in the construction industry by introducing and utilizing 3D and digital twin solutions in the design, construction, and maintenance management sectors under the i-Construction and BIM/CIM strategy promoted by MLIT.
