Japan’s leading shipyard to demonstrate use of Intergraph software by cutting steel plates at BARI-SHIP 2011

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., April 26, 2011 – Shin Kurushima Dockyard Company Limited (SKDY), recognized as one of the world’s most productive shipyards, has standardized on Intergraph® SmartMarine® 3D as its 3D design and modeling solution of choice for its ship projects.

Japan-based SKDY sought to implement leading-edge technology to increase its leading productivity numbers, as well as to drive improved quality and performance. The company found SmartMarine 3D to be the perfect match for its requirements, being truly a next-generation solution with rule-based technology, enabling SKDY to include and enhance its own sophisticated automation rules to continuously drive productivity numbers. With SmartMarine 3D, SKDY continues to enhance its competitiveness in the global shipbuilding industry. SKDY has now standardized on SmartMarine 3D for its ship design department, using it as the shipyard’s enterprise solution of choice for all of its projects.

SmartMarine 3D’s unique architecture enables users to create their own custom rules that allow the automated creation of parametric structure detail, as well as manufacturing parts through either manual or automatic selection. SKDY has succeeded in changing part selection rules from manual to automatic through the integration of its unique shipbuilding know-how and expertise into SmartMarine 3D. SKDY will demonstrate cuts of four steel plates with the use of SmartMarine 3D’s manufacturing application and data at BARI-SHIP 2011, Japan’s premier shipbuilding industry event, to be held on May 19-21, 2011 in Imabari city.

“We chose to standardize on SmartMarine 3D because of its proven efficiency and ability to include further design automation, leading to less labor costs without having to sacrifice quality,” said Isshin Fuji, general manager, Ship Design Department of SKDY. “SmartMarine 3D’s data-centric capabilities ensure that we always use high-quality manufacturing data with minimal design errors for enhanced safety, quality and productivity.”

Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, “We are pleased that our solution has delivered continued productivity results for SKDY, one of the world’s most productive shipyards, and it is an honor to have SKDY demonstrate the use of SmartMarine 3D at BARI-SHIP 2011. SKDY’s choice validates Intergraph SmartMarine 3D as the premier ship design and engineering software in the industry.”

SmartMarine 3D is the world’s most advanced offshore and shipbuilding design solution, providing companies with the capabilities they need to gain and maintain an edge in a highly competitive industry. SmartMarine 3D is breakthrough engineering technology that is data-centric, knowledge- and rule-driven, streamlining marine asset design processes and improving delivery schedules, with increased detail and manufacturing design productivity of up to 30 percent. SmartMarine 3D is endorsed and used by leading offshore and marine companies globally, including the most productive shipyard, the top offshore owner operator, the top fabrication yard and the top classification society in the world.

The ARC Advisory Group, a leading industry analysis firm, ranked Intergraph the No. 1 overall engineering design 3D software and process engineering tools (PET) provider worldwide according to its PET Worldwide Outlook Market Analysis and Forecast through 2013.
