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.
