Vickers Shipbuilding Upgrades Software Capability

Computervision Corporation announced that Vickers Shipbuilding and Engineering (VSEL), a leading U.K. shipbuilder, has moved forward with its Electronic Product Definition implementation, acquiring software valued at $1.82 million from Computervision.

Computervision's software will be used to help design, build and support VSEL's future products. VSEL is recognized in the shipbuilding industry for its Electronic Product Definition (EPD) strategy. EPD is a tool for reducing costs and time to market in complex multi-part assemblies. Using EPD, VSEL will electronically define and analyze its ships, submarines and armament products in computer software prior to manufacture. The data will then be used to support products throughout their life cycles, ensuring improved levels of quality. The contract involves Computervision's CADDS' 5 total product modeling software, and Optegra enterprise data management software, Optegra Explorer and Concurrent Assembly Mock- Up (CAMU).
