Ship Design for Shipbuilding

Shipbuilders are are under pressure to make designs more energy-efficient, reliable and environmentally-friendly with better overall performance and lower total operating costs. It is a formidable task to develop future ships and offshore structures while facing intense competition and price pressure as well as meeting all operational requirements over the service life of a ship.

Accelerate development of modern ships and offshore structures with a next-generation ship design solution. A holistic shipbuilding solution drives innovation and facilitates global collaboration. It addresses all disciplines of shipbuilding, including hull and structures, outfitting (piping, HVAC, electrical), accommodation and mechanical. It enables production planning and generation of manufacturing data. A differentiating solution also provides a unique integrated design and analysis environment for faster design-analysis iterations to deliver better designs faster.

By leveraging our PLM ship design solution, designers and engineers can create and maintain 3D ship models in context of key work groups such as major ship modules, compartments, systems and locations.
