AVEVA’s Marine Technology & Service Centre develops new product with leading Asian shipbuilders to increase design and production efficiency
Cambridge, UK – 4 April 2012: AVEVA (LSE:AVV), announce today that AVEVA Pipe Supports – Marine 12.1, an entirely new specialised product within the AVEVA Marine portfolio, is now available. Designed to meet the unique requirements of the shipbuilding industry, it was developed in collaboration with leading Asian shipbuilders at AVEVA’s Marine Technology & Service Centre (MTSC) based in Busan, Korea. AVEVA Pipe Supports – Marine increases design and production efficiency through the precise definition and management of pipe supports, saving costs and compressing project schedules.
“AVEVA Pipe Supports – Marine offers a highly tuned user interface, improved design consistency, accurate materials information and reduced production time compared to other non-specialised tools,” comments Stéphane Neuvéglise, Head of Business Management – Marine Systems, AVEVA. “Users benefit from greater flexibility and control, while shipyards benefit from reduced production time and costs. This new product is a good example of how we are working to make shipbuilding altogether more efficient and cost effective”.
“Pipe Supports – Marine draws on the experience of an already established solution in use by hundreds of our plant customers and combines the insight and experience of the shipbuilding industry”, said Dave Wheeldon, Chief Technology Officer, AVEVA. “It has been created with direct involvement from leading names in the Marine industry. This collaborative approach is an important part of AVEVA’s strategy to develop game-changing solutions for our customers”.
AVEVA Pipe Supports – Marine makes available tools to create pipe support details in the AVEVA Marine 3D model and then automatically create pipe support manufacturing drawings for each pipe support.
