Live Load auto-generation in RC-PIER

Live Load auto-generation in RC-PIER

I was wondering if anyone has software verification for the live load auto-gen function in RC-PIER. The office I work in at my firm says they cannot verify the LL auto-gen output, so they have been hand comping LL. Another office of ours still uses the LL auto-gen (don't know if they've verified or not). I would certainly hope a software suite as popular as LEAP Bridge (or simple RC-PIER) would be capable of computing bridge live load correctly. I've come to discover in my 3+ years in the industry that most mainstream bridge design software is lackluster at best, but to screw up LL generation in mainstream bridge design software is unacceptable in my opinion.
