Support Paralleled Generators Connected to Switchboard
DM does not currently support more than one source on the Normal side of an ATS or the EM side of ATS, however larger I-2, I-3 occupancies generally have paralleled generators connected to a switchboard. This feature would avoid cumbersome work arounds.

This might be more useful if you could have more than one source for a BUS device. We often model multi-section switchboards as separate pieces of equipment, with the first section as either a gutter (if it's MLO) or as an enclosed breaker (for a main). Having a BUS that allowed multiple inputs would make either of these possible.
Similarly, we recently had a project with an existing MDP with a main but no capacity. We needed to add a second MDP, but the power utility would not strike the building more than once and the existing transformer was the largest one they normally stock. The solution was to place a second transformer in parallel, join them in a junction enclosure, then bring in separate service entrances for the two MDPs. his would again be easier to model if we had a bus gutter that allowed multiple inputs as well as outputs.
