Bentley MicroStation Test Scores Around The World

MicroStation is a CAD software product for two and three dimensional design and drafting, developed and sold byBentley Systems.

Over the years, KnowledgeSmart has captured test scores for thousands of MicroStation users, in several countries worldwide.

Here is our overall benchmark data, from 2011 to 2015:

Average Score: 59.3%
Average Time: 1 hr 24 mins

Let's take a look at some overall aggregate score and time data on a country vs country basis. Numbers of test scores vary, so this list does not imply that one country is 'better' than another. It's interesting to see what kind of data is generated in different parts of the globe.

Country Score (%) Time (secs)
Australia 58.7 4873.3
Canada 57.7 5172.2
China 65.0 3965.7
India 54.7 4660.0
Ireland 57.0 6195.0
Oman 55.0 6620.4
Portugal 63.0 6680.6
S. Africa 62.4 6801.3
Spain 61.2 4420.0
UAE 58.2 4145.2
UK 61.3 4859.4
USA 59.2 5373.6

We also capture data on a per State basis, for our US customers. The list below represents those States where the volume of data makes for meaningful data sharing.

State Score (%) Time (secs)
USA (all) 59.2 5373.6
California 59.8 5567.5
Florida 64.7 4400.8
Indiana 55.1 4060.3
Kansas 58.8 4600.4
New York 66.2 4225.2
North Carolina 53.7 5710.1
Texas 61.4 6025.0

As with AutoCAD, even though the software has been commercially available for many years, there are still notable skills gaps across the overall user base. Our data shows that MicroStation users reach a performance 'plateau' after about 5 years and then remain at a similar skill level in subsequent years. 

MicroStation has traditionally maintained a strong base in Rail and Infrastructure projects, with a large legacy .dgn file format history in this sector.
