Autodesk, Inc., announced that China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) will purchase 10,000 licenses of the Autodesk Inventor Series over the next three years
, primarily for the use of Autodesk Inventor 3D mechanical design software included in the Autodesk Inventor Series. CSSC worked with China Daheng Information Technology Corporation, Autodesk’s Manufacturing channel partner in China, to select the Autodesk software as its standard for digital design.
The collaborative capabilities of Autodesk’s software will help CSSC promote digital information exchange among ship design enterprises and ship owners. CSSC also anticipates that improved collaboration will increase competitiveness throughout its shipbuilding supply chain, improving quality and enhancing results.
“The advantage of low labor costs in China cannot be undermined by low productivity,” said Qiu Huihui, vice president of Information Industry and Investment Development at CSSC. “Utilizing advanced and suitable information technology is one of CSSC’s strategies to address global competition. Cooperating with Autodesk has created an environment for CSSC to fully utilize the 3D design applications and resources available from Autodesk.”
“Autodesk’s work with CSSC plays a strategic role in supporting China’s policy of adopting advanced technology,” said Robert Kross, vice president of the Manufacturing Division at Autodesk. “Autodesk is committed to working with CSSC and China Daheng Information Technology Corporation to ensure they are able to take full advantage of the powerful functionality offered by Autodesk Inventor 3D design software.”
