ShipConstructor: Part of $1.4m NSRP Research Project

Thursday, December 22, 2011

ShipConstructor Software Inc. (SSI) continues to expand its involvement in the US National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP), created to advance technology and help shipbuilders increase efficiency. Alongside six other industry partners, SSI USA will participate in a $1.4 million project entitled “Production Planning Integration with CAD” whose objective is to “decrease man-hours and eliminate errors by automating the data exchange from a Product Data Model or Computer-Assisted Design (CAD) model into a Production Planning System.” This project will leverage work done on a previous NSRP “Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Integration with CAD” project.

“A fundamental part of our company’s philosophy is to promote interoperability between various applications used in the shipbuilding process,” explained Patrick Roberts, Director of Operations for ShipConstructor USA. “The ShipConstructor Product Data Model contains a wealth of critical information and so our goal has always been focused towards enhancing the ease of sharing that data with other programs." The project will be led by Bollinger Shipyards and other team members include VT Halter Marine, Marinette Marine, BAE Systems Southeast Shipyards, Genoa Design International and Praeses, LLC.
