Design, construction, and operation of ships

Intergraph serves a variety of shipbuilding owner operators and engineering, procurement, and construction companies. These include shipyards and ship owners, naval architects and engineers, marine engineers, and directors of engineering technology. Intergraph drives improvements in design efficiency, production schedule, and overall life cycle cost control for shipyards. You can increase the number of ships completed per year, and compress your schedules.

3D Modeling & Visualization

SmartMarine™ 3D is the most advanced shipbuilding solution in the market today. It is the "next generation" ship design, construction and life cycle software solution that directly addresses the highly competitive shipbuilding industry. Its open, rule-driven, data-centric architecture enable business process improvement by removing many of the technical barriers of today's software tools. For example, the use of a single product model allows all disciplines including detailing, manufacturing, analysis, planning, and life cycle support to fully participate in all design phases.

Engineering & Schematics

Intergraph’s Engineering & Schematics tools support the conceptual design phases and provide data back and forth to engineering tools such as SmartMarine 3D.

SmartPlant® P&ID enables engineers to create several design scenarios, have the rules drive the consistency, and access external data sources, such as pipe specifications, to make sure the design can be built. The control system and electrical solution offer tools to make sure that the ship is equipped with safety and backup systems. Because safety is a major issue, the design can constantly be evaluated for safety and HAZOP studies using SmartPlant Process Safety.

SmartPlant Electrical supports the power distribution design and interfaces with the physical 3D design for cable management.

SmartPlant Instrumentation does the same for controls and associated cables. Reliable power with backups and controls for safety such as fire, water, and shutdown of systems is key for ship and personal/passenger safety. In addition, SmartPlant Instrumentation offers solutions for the design of remote measurement and telecommunication systems on ships. Learn more

Information Management

Intergraph's SmartMarine Enterprise Solution supports the marine design and construction industry's most significant Information Management challenges at companies like Samsung Heavy Industries, Odense Steel Shipbuilding, and Keppel Fels. These challenges include:

  • Coordinating design and production information for hull, outfitting, and offshore topsides design for the entire project life cycle
  • Rapid information dissemination of consistent, complete, correct data from design to production
  • Configuration and change management
  • Supporting information exchange with owners and classification agencies

Materials Management & Project Controls

For a typical new ship, 10 to 15 percent of the total cost is for engineering design and 50 to 60 percent of the costs are related to material. It is obvious that surplus materials caused by ineffective materials management, even to levels of only five percent, can result in the loss of millions of dollars on an average new build. Without continuous management and project performance, it is difficult to take the appropriate corrective action to prevent schedule delays. These delays can often be even more costly when they affect ship delivery. Effectively managing these complicated business processes in an integrated environment throughout all phases of the project life cycle is vital. Learn more
