Kronodoc Oy and SYX to Collaborate
Kronodoc Oy and ShipyardXchange AS (SYX) have made an agreement to develop a prototype, conduct a pilot, and finally to develop a project collaboration portal based on Kronodoc’s technology and collaboration functionality.
A pilot team comprised of Langsten shipyard (Norway), Skipsteknisk ship design consultants
(Norway) and Braila shipyard (Romania) has tested Kronodoc in an actual project since
November 2002. In this pilot, Kronodoc is used to support the exchange and approval of
design drawings between Braila (supplying the hull) Langsten (outfitting the ship) and
Skipsteknisk (responsible for the design). In a geographically distributed work environment it
is a challenge to ensure that all involved parties have access to the correct drawings - when
they need them. Kronodoc’s user friendly, web-based solution has provided the project team
sufficient functionality, and it has required a minimum amount of training for the users to
utilize the system.
