Aveva announced the release of its new Automated Plate Nesting, a plug-in module to Aveva Hull Detailed Design software. It automatically nests parts into raw steel plates, maximizing the usage of the material and drastically reducing the scrap ratio associated with this process.

Aveva said shipyards can achieve savings of up to 13% on raw material requirements by minimizing production waste in this manner,when compared to using semi-automatic nesting or other third-party systems. In addition, Aveva said this new module makes the nesting process easier which leads to saving significant man-hours in production engineering.

Aveva Automated Plate Nesting is a direct plug-in to Aveva Marine Hull Detailed Design, removing the need for costly interfaces or third party systems. It is compatible with the most recent version of Aveva Marine.
