AVEVA releases major enhancements to AVEVA Marine

Cambridge, UK: AVEVA (LSE:AVV), a leader in engineering design and information management solutions for the plant, power and marine industries, today announced the 12.1 release of its AVEVA Marine solution which offers enhanced reporting options, improved productivity and extended language support features.

The enhanced reporting options offer an efficient tool, with an enriched User Interface, enabling sharing across many of the AVEVA Marine modules and other AVEVA products. The new and improved capability means that users are able to create report templates via a wizard and can inserts images and charts, making it easier to use with a more professional presentation. Users benefit through the standard model library allowing the ability to reuse designs from existing built-in complex components, reducing the man-hours spent on the design.

Extended language support features and extended data exchange capabilities meet the requirements of AVEVA’s global customer base, offering greater flexibility in multi-location projects involving different simultaneous languages. There is also greater flexibility when working within an Integrated Engineering & Design environment due to the automatic creation of symbolic-type marine drawings from the model database, as well as general 2D drafting functions.

AVEVA Marine Drafting provides improved productivity through the automatic creation of Marine drawings.

Further new products, available in this release, include:

AVEVA Design Reuse - enables the intelligent and adaptive copying of ship’s data between projects.
AVEVA Surface Manager - allows the transfer of surfaces to and from external systems
AVEVA Space Management – a tool to create and manage the automatic subdivision of the ship into spaces.

“The latest version of AVEVA Marine has created a technological breakthrough. It brings shipbuilders and ship designers to a new level of efficiency in marine design”, said Stéphane Neuvéglise, Head of Business Management – Marine Systems, AVEVA. “The AVEVA Marine technology makes possible the fully integrated, concurrent development of engineering and 3D design data. This allows naval architects, engineers and designers working together on a marine design project to deliver savings of up to 30% compared to alternative solutions”.

Additional product releases to follow include:

AVEVA Engineering - an application enabling multi-discipline engineering teams to concurrently create and maintain engineering objects and their attributes as a project is developed.
AVEVA Pipe Supports – Marine - enables easy and efficient design of support for pipes.

AVEVA’s Integrated Engineering & Design approach offers users entry points to a wealth of other products. AVEVA Engineer products create schematics, diagrams, datasheets, naval architecture, engineering lists and indexes. The AVEVA Design products create 3D models for detailed design and produce all associated deliverables. AVEVA’s Manage products enable global work share, clash management and design review.
