Welcome to the Substation Design Solution (SDS) Industry Consortium or SDSIC. We are made up of member utilities that have adopted or are investigating for adoption the Autodesk and SBS suite of software products (Inventor, AutoCAD Electrical and Substation Design Suite) with Autodesk and SBS, the software developer.

The Consortium meets, as needed, to establish common workflows, common toolkit functionality, shared libraries, common standards, technology needs and any other topics that help drive Autodesk and SBS to software development according to an industry standard.

The SDS Industry Consortium drives standards to promote common library development from internal resources, external partners, and/or equipment manufacturers.

Our Committees

The SDSIC has several committees that focus on their individual workflows from physical design to electrical design to technology. The committees interact on a regular basis and publish standards and recommendations for all members.

The goal is to enable collaboration and provide a voice for each discipline. To take part in a committee simply register your own account here.


We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
