Integrated SmartMarine® platform speeds design process and increases accuracy
HUNTSVILLE, Ala - Intergraph® will now resell DNV Software's Nauticus Early Design software as part of its integrated SmartMarine® Enterprise solution to speed ship and offshore platform design and increase accuracy by seamlessly transitioning from the conceptual design and rules calculation phase to detailed and production design without the need to remodel.
Nauticus Early Design, which is based on Intergraph's SmartMarine 3D development platform with additional stringent DNV classification rule calculations modules for the marine industry, is a complete package for ship early design integrating 3D CAD and ship analysis systems.
It combines new-generation 3D modeling and drawing generation which are integrated with the well-established analysis capabilities of Nauticus Hull for class rules check and finite element analysis, Sesam and GeniE. The system's advanced rule engine allows knowledge-based marine engineering, a high degree of automation and elimination of repetitive modeling tasks which contributes to shortened lead time and increased quality of the design.
Early Design rule calculations are needed to receive class approval signifying that the offshore platform or ship construction proposed is of sound engineering and therefore applicable for insurance purposes. The rules are based on more than 100 years of experience gathered by the class societies.
Leveraging Intergraph's advanced development platform, Nauticus Early Design and SmartMarine 3D require no manual interface, allowing users to transition directly from conceptual design to detailed and production design, without the need to remodel ensuring design consistency and single entry of information.
Manual interfaces and remodeling require additional design time and contribute to errors. However with the Nauticus Early Design and SmartMarine 3D, customers can work completely in a single model and therefore ensure consistency in design, accuracy and the single entry of information.
"Our rules calculation and analysis modules combined with Intergraph's design platform provide an exceptional architecture to enable ship and marine designers to have a powerful new way to ensure safe designs with the speed necessary to meet today's demanding production deadlines," said, Elling Rishoff, managing director, DNV Software.
Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, "Our expanded alliance with DNV, one of the world's leading class societies, continues our commitment to our growing ship and offshore customer base and to delivering increased productivity to provide our customers a competitive edge."
Intergraph will offer Nauticus Early Design under a reseller agreement with DNV Software, an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for Intergraph's SmartMarine 3D design software.
