Ship design software and ship information management software in one

Product

Fast Track your way to an improved shipbuilding process

Competitive advantages with a shared digital ship model

Design

Design ships to match customer requirements, easily perform feasibility studies and efficiently lay the basis for the ship’s digital twin.

Visualization

Create 2D and 3D visualizations to share with other stakeholders, prepare marketing materials or visualize complex spatial relations.

Analytics

Keep track of the current project status, utilize data from previous projects to conduct plausibility checks to minimize risks.

Collaboration

Share information across various stakeholders, including internal communication across departments as well as external communication with other organizations.

Quantities

Derive quantities, areas, volumes, and other key figures directly from the model to have a reliable basis for weight, time, cost, and other estimations.

Our Solution

Rethinking Software for Ship Design

Naval Architect is a cloud-native design platform that connects stakeholders of shipbuilding projects in order to get the right information to the right people at the right time.

While other shipbuilding software merely focuses on the improvement of isolated tasks, Naval Architect addresses the overall process. It fundamentally changes how stakeholders engage and interact in shipbuilding projects by moving from a process with information distributed across technical drawings, CAD data, and other documents towards a shared digital representation of the ship.
This central digital ship model serves as a reliable “single source of truth” for all stakeholders to collaboratively work on, which simplifies both ship project management and the ship design process.
We believe that optimizing the design phase is the best way to avoid unwanted additional costs caused by time delay, planning errors and poor change management. Our ship design software can be applied from project start to also cover the early ship building process where the improvement potential is high.

Ship Information Modeling (SIM)

Consistent information throughout your project

Increase design efficiency and minimize planning errors.

Intelligent 3D Model of the ship right from the start
Fast modeling: combine the speed of 2D drawings with the added value of a true 3D model
Define project-specific standards for information exchange
Model all relevant details of a ship to capture key technical parameters, cost characteristics, relationships, etc.

What sets us apart from existing software

Focus on the bigger picture – revolutionize the ship design process

Naval Architect is the first shipbuilding software solution that focuses on the entire process rather than isolated tasks. It fundamentally changes the way work is done and how stakeholders interact.

find out more

Existing CAD systems only reflect on the needs of the particular task addressed. In simple terms: CAD ship design systems provide a way to share CAD data across CAD users. Other stakeholders which are not familiar with CAD simply won’t be able to get the information they need without asking a CAD specialist.
Naval Architect – in contrast to traditional CAD ship design systems – provides a true digital representation of a ship for all stakeholders and disciplines. Being able to represent the information needs of the various stakeholders throughout the entire shipbuilding project is what makes Naval Architect unique. Therefore, our software for naval architecture is built as a cloud-native application that is completely accessible through the web browser, making it the easiest solution to incorporate all relevant users.

Information Management:
Build a digital ship model which combines geometrical and non-geometrical information in one unified place. Derive quantities, areas, volumes, and other key figures directly from the model to have a reliable basis for weight, time, cost, and other estimations.

Computer-Aided Design:
Create detailed CAD models and drawings containing the information required to manufacture parts, assemblies and systems.

CAD Data Management:
Receive, track, manage and store CAD data and files during the project lifecycle (PLM/PDM).

Rapid 3D Ship Design:
Draw in 2D plan views to create a 3D model combining the speed of 2D drawings with the added value of a true 3D model.
