NAOS adopts DS solution experiences to support ship design processes

Marine vehicle design company NAOS Group is to deploy Dassault Systèmes’ ‘Designed for Sea’ and ‘Optimized Production for Sea’ industry solution experiences to help virtually create and manage the master reference of a superyacht.

NAOS will use the industry solution experiences to integrate all design, engineering and manufacturing processes through a single virtual environment. The company will also be better placed to facilitate the numerous design changes requested by shipyards and shipowners during the project development process with greater ease thanks to the solutions.

Running on the Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, the two solutions allow naval architecture and marine engineering services teams to be connected to requirements, regulations and project planning, with full traceability throughout the development process.

“We have used various shipbuilding CAD systems in the past to develop superyacht projects for shipyards, but wanted a new, more efficient approach that a business platform provides,” said Roberto Prever, president, NAOS. “‘Designed for Sea’ and ‘Optimized Production for Sea’ make it possible to seamlessly decide on design changes related to stability, basic design, advanced structural design, or safety. Now, we can deliver a project’s entire design and engineering much more efficiently. In addition, the integration of manufacturing documentation gives our shipyard clients significant advantages to optimise their production and assembly costs.”

Teams at NAOS can capture and reuse existing data, handle design changes, start planning manufacturing early in the design process, and deliver high-quality documentation for hull structure scantling and fabrication.

“Leading shipyards around the world strive to build high-value, high-performance ships that are tailored to specific customer requests, and the way in which they design and build can have huge business impacts,” said Alain Houard, vice president, Marine & Offshore Industry, Dassault Systèmes. “The 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables NAOS to design and engineer ships with high quality and sustainability, while fulfilling budget and time requirements, enhancing their reputation in the marketplace.”
