Virtual Reality in Shipbuilding

Immersive solutions for real-time access using virtual reality tool for shipbuilding

A demonstration of FORAN's Virtual Reality Solution for shipbuilding showing real-time access to review the FORAN 3D virtual model

The FORAN Virtual Reality solution provides access to the 3D model of the ship developed in FORAN, taking advantage of the latest technologies. Visualization and model navigation can be managed from different devices (one-side view environment, complex multi-wall simulator as caves or head-mounted displays) and for many purposes (such as design review, simulation of operations, ergonomics, marketing) using our virtual reality tool for shipbuilding. Benefits can be seen in fabrication and construction, where many costly errors can be easily avoided.

  • Complete set of solutions to navigate and review around the FORAN 3D model
  • SENER can provide customizable installations, including large screens, caves, head-mounted displays, or tablets.
  • FORAN offers a virtual reality viewer that can handle a vast amount of data and can be applied for the design review.
  • Ergonomic studies and operations simulations.
  • Training activities in a virtual environment
  • Marketing applications
  • Better product design, avoiding many costly errors in production
  • Faster decisions and savings in maintenance costs

Applications

  • Resolve complex design or manufacturing issues in a collaborative environment
  • Validation of complex assembly processes
  • Virtual prototypes, variants, and configurations to achieve the final design
  • Detection of design errors
  • Improved production and maintenance operations
  • Ergonomic studies (reachability and usability)
  • Training of assembly personnel
  • Training of new personnel in ships and offshore platforms

FORAN

Construction of a ship at a shipyard, made efficient through FORAN ship design software

Used at every stage of the design and production of a vessel, FORAN is the only ship design software of its kind as it encompasses every aspect of shipbuilding in a fully integrated manner. It is currently licensed at more than 150 shipyards and design offices in 40 countries.
