Hi Mihalis, I'm for sure curious to see what the Schneider team would recommend as a standard here. We have Bus Bar distribution as well and have an active project to get BCM integration fully mapped to drive capacity metrics, etc.

It basically comes down to modeling a standard PDU and then creating panels which represent each bus bar feed. We've set the panels using the modular setting... with 255 positions since we are integrating with ModBus. As we snap in the tap boxes and model out the receptacles.. we try to match the labeling using  panel/position. 

We have also adopted a standard where we use the DWG autocad back ground layers to visually mark up the floor map showing which bus bars go where. Trouble though, as you may know... the standard layers of DCO overlay on top of the CAD layer... so it's not ideal.
