Intergraph, LR to Team on Ship Interface

Wednesday, June 21, 2006
Intergraph Corporation reached an agreement with Lloyd's Register to build an interface between Intergraph's IntelliShip multi-discipline ship design software, and the Lloyd's Register assessment applications, RulesCalc and ShipRight SDA. The interface will result in significantly greater efficiencies in the classification process for Lloyd's Register classed ships. IntelliShip coupled with this new interface will improve the overall ship design, certification, construction and commissioning process. Shipyards and ship designers can readily check the model created in IntelliShip against Lloyd's Register's classification rules, eliminating redundant modeling and reducing errors. Since IntelliShip is rule based, checks early in the design cycle automatically carry over to detailed design and construction. Paul Roberts, Lloyd's Register's Design Systems Software Integration Group Manager said, "Lloyd's Register is committed to providing interfaces to the software design applications used by ship designers. IntelliShip is among the leading solutions for shipbuilding design and manufacturing, so creating an interface to our assessment applications is a strategic decision that will drive efficiency and create value for users of both organizations' software applications." The interface between IntelliShip and Lloyd's Register assessment applications will enable ship designers to check their designs against class requirements more easily, and this will help to increase the efficiency of the initial design process. The interface between IntelliShip and Lloyd's Register's RulesCalc and ShipRight SDA will be created using the open data exchange tools contained within Lloyd's Register's existing Interface Toolkit. "The interface fits with our goal of providing risk management solutions to enhance the quality, safety, environmental and business performance of our clients," said Roberts.
