SENER Ingeniería y Sistemas SA informs it has launched a new version of its marine CAD/CAM system, the FORAN V80, which incorporates new capabilities to cope with demands from the marine shipbuilding, civil, offshore and naval sectors.
The new version is fully compatible with the previous ones and includes improvements in all of its modules, SENER said in launching the update. The main upgrades come from the initial and basic project stages, where the calculations and results can be reused in further steps. Regarding the hull structure and outfitting modules, they add extra functionality such as the new advanced welding managing, or enhancements in the P&ID – 3D piping link, now with a more flexible and complete data locking system.
The update bolsters total integration between FORAN and other PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) tools, which optimize the access control (security), the configuration and changes management (maturity control) and offers a solution for the handling of series of sister ships.
The FORAN System has also incorporated additional functionality oriented to the design and manufacturing of offshore structures, while SENER continues with the development of the design and production particularities required by the Far East shipyards. Finally, the use of the information generated by FORAN is optimized and propagated by cutting edge technology in the virtual reality, like its use in tablets and other portable devices, the developer said.
