Simpson Strong-Tie will showcase their Component Solutions (CS) software at the Building Component Manufacturers Conference (BCMC) October 23–26 at the Wisconsin Center in downtown Milwaukee.


At exhibit booth #1115, Simpson Strong-Tie will provide BCMC attendees with an overview of Component Solutions software. CS Truss Studio and CS Director provide simple and robust tools for project management, truss design and fabrication. With its intuitive user interface, this flexible software solution is designed to support collaboration with other industry software and machinery applications. This approach provides a practical and scalable choice model for component manufacturing businesses. 


“The BCMC show is always a great venue for component professionals to share ideas and innovations for improving component design and manufacturing,” said April Burt, Simpson Strong-Tie vice president of Integrated Component Systems. “We’re looking forward to sharing the capabilities of the Component Solutions software and exploring how we can partner with component designers, fabricators and builders to take advantage of new opportunities in this growing building sector.”


CS Truss Studio software integrates truss design components into a 3D environment to provide dynamic interaction between layout and design, enabling manufacturers to analyze and engineer entire truss layouts with speed and efficiency. CS Director project management software complements CS Truss Studio software by consolidating project information into a single, central location accessible by both onsite and remote personnel. Other key highlights of Component Solutions include the following:


  • A configurable and scalable management solution that will grow with your business
  • An intuitive, easy-to-learn layout and design solution
  • PDF, DWG, DXF and BIM files that can be imported or exported as needed to expedite design and collaborate with other building professionals
  • Complete integration between layout and truss design view
  • Customized reporting
