Kockums Computer Systems (KCS) recently announced that Tribon, a totally integrated design and information system created to fit the specific business needs of the shipbuilding industry, will be available this October.

According to KCS, Tribon is tailor- made to support the main activities in the shipbuilding process, including: tendering; design; production; materials; planning; finance; and follow-up.

Tribon, by improving accessibility to information, gives the user full control over all stages of building a vessel, from tendering through delivery. To date Kvaerner Masa- Yards, Turku and Helsinki yards, Finland, and Kvaerner Warnow Werft, Rostock-Warnemunde, Germany, have all purchased the Tribon hull application. Some of the features Tribon possesses which make the system beneficial to the industry include: a specialized design application for all disciplines integrated into one environment; product information model database; production information for parts manufacture; integration of a materials application with design applications; use of industry standards e.g. the graphical interface PHIGS new modern user interface; ant more. Tribon is available on Digita and Hewlett Packard, and soon IBIV hardware. Some of the benefits o using Tribon, as touted by KCS, in elude reduced contract elapsed tim< from order to delivery, reducec manhours in design and productioi and reduced cost for materials. For tendering, Tribon sports ai array of tools to make the initia project design in a structured way t< allow full details for exact pricing For design, the system contains spe cialized design applications for hul structure, pipe work, cabling, ac commodation, etc. For parts pro duction, Tribon generates necessary production information which car save the designer time, and in as sembly the system provides tools t( define each assembly stage and ere ate the specific production informa tion for each assembly.

Also, Tribon can be fully inte grated with the data processing sys tems of other departments. Foi more information on Tribon fron KCS,
