AVEVA announced that BMT Defense Services Ltd (BMT) has chosen AVEVA Marine software to serve its current and future customers through improved design efficiency. BMT has selected AVEVA Marine to enable tighter integration between its hull and outfitting disciplines, aiming to improve design efficiency through closer collaboration between disciplines.

“AVEVA Marine is used by our key clients, and many potential clients, and hence was an obvious choice for us,” said Roy Quilliam, Technical Director, BMT Defense Services Ltd. “We are always striving to improve our internal processes, and ultimately to better serve our customers by giving them more effective solutions and services. Here, improving design efficiency was our key goal. We evaluated other products on the market, and determined that AVEVA Marine best suited our needs.”

BMT an independent center of engineering design that provides complex engineering and design capabilities for U.K. and international defense customers. It is the design contractor for the Norwegian Defense Logistics Organization’s logistics and support vessel which will be built by Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) in South Korea, who have been using AVEVA software for more than 20 years.

One of the main reasons behind BMT’s decision to adopt 3D software was the ability to produce an accurate weight estimate from the model, which was previously done using a combination of 2D and spread sheets. This alone saved BMT around two to three man-months of effort on this project. AVEVA provided tailored training for BMT employees to ensure rapid and efficient implementation. “It is a big step to go from 2D to 3D, but with AVEVA’s support we were able to make the transition very smoothly. We will certainly look to deploy AVEVA Marine software on future projects as well,” added Mr. Quilliam.

“We are very happy that we can help BMT to improve their design processes by providing them with our proven, integrated solution,” said Fredy Ktourza, Senior Vice President, Western Europe & Africa, AVEVA. “AVEVA Marine integrates engineering and 3D design data into one managed ship information model, which will enable BMT to work more efficiently with less risk of error.”
