New FORAN Update from SENER
SENER Ingeniería y Sistemas SA launched a new version of its marine CAD/CAM system, the FORAN V80.
The new version is fully compatible with the previous ones and includes improvements in all of its modules. 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. www.sener.es
