Interactive Design Systems (IDS), founded in 1987, develops Bridge Engineering software with unique, important capabilities: time-dependent construction simulation and geometry control. Our software helps bridge engineers, bridge designers and builders in design firms, governmental and educational entities, to design better structures more economically. 

IDS Software  is composed of three key modules, which function independently or as a whole to help Bridge Designers effectively manage bridge engineering challenges in the areas of:

  • 2D/3D Bridge Analysis & Design
  • Bridge Modeling & Geometry Generator
  • Geometry Control of Precast Segmental Bridges

“Bridge Designer’s™ straightforward input syntax, flexibility in modeling construction sequences, and reliable, proven performance allowed us to quickly generate independent design verification models to keep pace with aggressive project schedules.”
