Las Vegas-based provider of enterprise engineering software for the process, power and marine industries, Intergraph, says it has released Intergraph Smart Production powered by NESTIX, the offshore and shipbuilding industries.

Stephen Furze, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine's executive vice president of Industry Solutions, said, "Intergraph Smart Production powered by NESTIX brings the principles of digital shipbuilding and offshore construction to fabrication shops. This specialized solution controls all aspects of the parts and module/block production process in ship and offshore yards into one integrated package. With Intergraph Smart Production, we now offer a complete solution through our Intergraph Smart Yard offering that supports all major processes within an offshore, shipyard or module fabricator."

A new solution within its next-generation Intergraph Smart Yard offering, Intergraph Smart Production enables yards and fabricators to control the entire module/block production process from digital design to parts fabrication through the completion of sub-assemblies, pipe spools, panels and module/block assemblies.

The production-oriented solution contains all the work preparation, part nesting functions and Numerical Control (NC) generation, and load balancing in one integrated solution, to support lean manufacturing.  Intergraph Smart Production features a unique bottom-up approach to control the fabrication shop. The solution has been developed in conjunction with leading yards and fabricators and incorporates production philosophies imported from the mechanical engineering industry, allowing continuous improvements.

Intergraph Smart Production integrates with Intergraph Smart™ 3D design, construction, material management and process machines on the shop floor to speed up part/piping/block/module production and prevent mistakes. The solution considerably increases material utilization and its design interface with the semi-automatic work preparation process helps to significantly reduce man-hours in the total production process.

Integraph claims that its Smart 3D for the marine industry is the most advanced marine asset and ship design software offered in two decades. It is a next-generation, data-centric, rule-driven solution for streamlining marine asset design processes while preserving existing data and making it more usable/re-usable. Smart 3D is a complementary, full-suite solution that provides all the software capabilities needed to design and build a marine structure.
