Intergraph Corporation announced
the newest version of its advanced IntelliShip(r) software for shipbuilding. The 6.0 version of IntelliShip provides new capabilities
and enhancements in ship molded form design, manufacturing planning,
structural manufacturing and drawings along with improved performance in
these respective areas. The IntelliShip 6.0 release, available now,
represents Intergraph's continued commitment shared with clients and
business partners to provide shipbuilding software that appreciably lowers
manpower and material costs and significantly reduces overall design and
construction outlays and schedules.
For ship outfitting, new capabilities and enhancements include those for
drawing production, reporting and model translation. Automated drawing
production enhancements include improved performance for piping isometric
drawings, new orthographic and isometric drawing types and batch scheduling
for drawing generation. Report improvements include simplified creation and
editing of reports as well as a number of new report types ready for
Intergraph now also provides capability to reference AVEVA Tribon hull
objects and structural designs in IntelliShip for outfitting. The capability
allows Tribon users to apply advanced Intergraph technology for outfitting
while continuing to use Tribon for structural tasks. Intergraph is
demonstrating the capability at the International Conference on Computer
Applications in Shipbuilding, where IntelliShip is at center stage.
Gerhard Sallinger, president, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine, said,
"Companies using Tribon can now implement Intergraph's highly-productive 3D
software for outfitting by referencing Tribon structural designs in
IntelliShip. They can begin implementing the advanced Intergraph ship design
technology today with limited impact on their engineering IT infrastructure.
Intergraph's core commitment is to provide clients with open and flexible
solutions that enable improved work processes for competitive advantage."
Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) Vice President Yeong Soo Bae, Ph.D., said,
"IntelliShip will make tremendous changes in the traditional ship design and
construction process and these changes put SHI well on the way to our goal
of significantly reducing design and construction errors and associated
costs." Bae is directing IntelliShip design
efforts at SHI, which is using
IntelliShip on a growing number of projects at its Geoje shipyard, among the
largest marine production facilities in the world.
