Bentley’s SELECT Open Access is a no-cost commercial innovation providing any electing subscriber with unrestricted portfolio-wide access to a “playlist”
Bentley SELECT’s unique Portfolio Balancing allows a once-per-year exchange of underutilized licenses for new software titles of equal value based on their respective current pricing. This provides subscribers with unmatched flexibility to adapt their software portfolios each year as their software needs change.
Phil Christensen, Bentley vice president, offshore, said, “MOSES has long been the choice of offshore engineers worldwide for projects involving the design, transportation, and installation of offshore structures, including jackets, topsides, FPSOs, spars, TLPs, semi-submersibles, wind turbines, and other platforms. This leadership position was achieved as a result of the software’s many innovative features, including its flexible and customizable MOSES Language and the integrated nature of its solver that improves efficiency and reduces the risk of error.”
He continued, “Now, MOSES users can have the added advantages that are available to Bentley SELECT subscribers, including the newly launched SELECT Open Access opt-in program. This advantage helps organizations of any size to maximize the value of their software investments while eliminating purchasing barriers to the most effective software utilization so that all Bentley applications become ‘Software at your Service.’ Moreover, MOSES users can look forward to two new releases of the software – the first of which is coming mid-year that will include a new language editor and new hull and compartment modeling capabilities. A second release later in 2014 will provide further integration with Bentley’s SACS software for the analysis and design of offshore structures.”

Bentley continues to be a leader in the provision of engineering software for better-performing, safer, and more resilient offshore structures, addressing key drivers:
• managing risks via compliance with design codes
• time to first production
• globalization of design teams
In addition to MOSES, Bentley’s engineering software for offshore structures includes SACS, for the structural analysis and design of fixed platforms as well as topsides for fixed platforms, floating platforms, and FPSO units; and MAXSURF, for the initial hull design of new vessels, and review of stability for modifications to existing vessels.
