The use of composites is growing rapidly as shipbuilders seek to reduce weight, increase payload, and reduce fuel consumption to meet carbon-emission standards. Composites can offer ship designers these advantages, but shipyards must be able to design and manufacture composite structures with reasonable precision, acceptable production yields and operational durability suitable for the challenging environments many ships must face. Additionally, in-service standards for marine composite structures must be developed and validated by regulatory agencies. Proper in-situ repair procedures are necessary for restoring damaged structures while in service.

The composites engineering and manufacturing solution supports the end-to-end design of marine composite structures from individual components to full load-bearing structures. The advantages of composites in ships, from improvements in stability, weight reduction and corrosion-resistance, to ballistic protection for critical systems on military ships, is well established.

The composites engineering and manufacturing solution can also be used to assess the in-service performance of marine composite structures and develop proper repair and restoration processes for damaged composite structures .

Bill of Materials Management

Teamcenter helps you know your product by providing a common source of BOM information across your organization. Whether you need basic BOM management, or more advanced BOM management and configuration with greater flexibility and scalability, you can meet and exceed the market demand for more innovative and varied product offerings.

Composite Design & Analysis

React to change in composite shape and specification based on CAE feedback quickly through Fibersim to ensure producibility of your composite part design.

Composite Design and Manufacturing

Automatically generate composite manufacturing data — such as flat patterns and data to drive automated cutting machines, laser projection systems, fiber placement machines, and tape laying machines — and share it downstream and across the enterprise

Composites

In the quest to make products lighter yet stronger, manufacturers are increasing their use of composite materials. Simcenter is at the leading-edge of composites analysis through continuous development of material models and element types. Simcenter speeds the entire process for simulating laminate composite materials through a seamless connection to composites design, accurate solvers and comprehensive post processing.

Fastening & Joint Design

For design engineers, Syncrofit facilitates an intuitive approach to the authoring of fastener management design data throughout the iterative process of assembly definition, design rule verification, fastener/hole visualization, and documentation release. The software stores the design data, linked to the associated 3D CAD geometry, directly inside the commercial 3D CAD model, completing the 3D product definition.

Manufacture Composites

Address the complex and specialized composite manufacturing processes through an intelligent design-to-manufacturing composite solution that is fully integrated into commercial 3D CAD systems.

Mechanical Design Management

Teamcenter brings together all your mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD) data in a single product data management (PDM) environment to improve engineering productivity. Whether your company uses one or more MCAD tools, you can easily find parts and assemblies created in other tools within your preferred MCAD environment, then modify and incorporate them into multi-CAD assemblies or product designs. You can automate engineering change, validation and approval processes to speed cycle time and improve product quality.

Product Modeling

Deliver greater innovation and higher quality at lower cost. NX product design software from Siemens PLM Software delivers power, efficiency and cost savings that extend beyond the design process to all phases of product development.
