Kyushu University Chooses SmartMarine

Friday, September 04, 2009

Kyushu University, one of Japan’s top maritime and naval architecture academic centers, has selected Intergraph SmartMarine 3D design and engineering software for use in its Department of Marine Systems Engineering to teach students shipbuilding design and operation training. The curriculum will also integrate Lloyd’s Register rules calculation software solutions to provide the analysis and evaluation of ship structure strength against classification rules.

Kyushu University will change its existing manual drafting education program to a new program consisting of SmartMarine 3D design and engineering software. Students will be able to create ship structure models and export these data to Lloyd’s Register’s RulesCalc software for structural assessment during the initial design process. Together these solutions help improve efficiency, integrating ship design and assessment with classification knowledge and experience. They also will offer better opportunities for students to use their skills upon graduation, many of whom will join major Japanese shipyards. Kyushu University is the first higher education institution in Japan to use SmartMarine 3D in its curriculum.

SmartMarine 3D is a key component of Intergraph’s multidiscipline SmartMarine Enterprise portfolio which provides all the capabilities needed to design and build offshore devices or ships from design to fabrication to operations and maintenance – all in a single, integrated environment. It is a data-centric, rule-driven solution for streamlining design processes while preserving existing data and making it more useable/re-useable over the operation, maintenance and modification life cycle of the device.
