Tianjin Standardizes on PTC Shipbuilding Solutions

Tuesday, January 09, 2007
PTC, the Product Development company, and Tianjin New Harbor Shipyard jointly announced that Tianjin New Harbor Shipyard has expanded its use of PTC Shipbuilding Solution, which includes CADDS5i to improve its design capabilities. With the expanded software implementation, Tianjin New Harbor Shipyard is standardizing on PTC Shipbuilding Solution as its manufacturing design platform. Tianjin New Harbor Shipyard believes that this decision will further accelerate its transformation into a modern international shipbuilding enterprise.

The CADDS 5i solution enables users to refer to each other’s evolving designs and facilitate concurrent engineering in a fully digitized ship design and 3D modeling environment. This sophisticated enterprise application for shipbuilding will shorten product design lead-time and accelerate time-to-market. With its new deployment of CADDS 5i, Tianjin New Harbor Shipyard is expected to bring additional revolutionary changes in digitization at its shipyard. CADDS 5i is now being used by over 40 engineers at Tianjin New Harbor Shipyard. As in any industrial sector, innovation is the key to capitalizing on opportunities and realizing market growth. However, the shipbuilding sector is often marked by lengthy product development cycles, due largely to archaic manual design processes that are still in place. Tianjin New Harbor Shipyard led the industry in adopting CADDS 5i, which offers flexible 3D hybrid modeling and 2D drafting capabilities across a broad application range, easing engineers’ workload, and freeing up their time to develop more innovative products. For many years, PTC has worked closely with the shipbuilding industry. As part of this effort, PTC has focused on improving 3D design tools and 2D drafting functions based on the shipbuilding industry criteria. As a result, CADDS 5 is widely used in both military and civil products.
