ShipConstructor Software Inc. (SSI) is expanding 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 will participate in a US$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.
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.
SSI is the creator of an Autodesk-based shipbuilding CAD/CAM application. The majority of the US Navy and Coast Guard's future fleet is being 3D modelled by shipyards utilising ShipConstructor software.
