Outfitting includes comprehensive functions for all aspects of 3D vessel outfitting design. Select from the list to learn more.
- A fully interactive, easy-to-use 3D environment, with a Microsoft Office-style user interface and the latest in 3D graphical design editing tools.
- Outfitting designers can work concurrently with hull designers and can see the entire design as it evolves.
- Parametric, catalogue-based component selection, clash-checking, specification-driven design, and configurable integrity-checking rules help create ‘right first time’ intelligent design and enable effective design quality assurance.
- Conventional issue, revision, and change-control processes can all be applied efficiently, regardless of the size of the project.
- Configurable Status Control provides visual highlighting and clear reporting of design maturity status of Outfitting objects.
- Highly configurable, automatic generation of a wide range of reports and drawings, direct from the project database, supports all requirements, including classification society approval and shipyard production processes.
- Integrated with all AVEVA Marine applications to form a complete and configurable ship design solution.
Outfitting allows all electrical and instrument items, including cabinets, transformers and switchgear, to be located in the 3D model for layout, visualisation, clash checking and the production of arrangement drawings.
- 3D models of electrical and off-line instrument items can be created from parameterised templates.
- The Cable Tray function selects components from a catalogue via an engineering specification to create a complete cable tray layout. A Fill command automatically fills straight parts of the route with straight lengths of tray.
- Cable tray isometric drawings can be automatically generated for manufacturing purposes.
- Outfitting integrates with AVEVA Cable Design for routing electrical and instrument cables, and with AVEVA Multi-Discipline Supports for the design of cable tray supports.
Outfitting provides a specialist function for the design of all types of ducting.
- An engineering specification is used to select parametric duct components from a catalogue, allowing a full 3D model to be built.
- A Fill command automatically fills straight parts of the route with straight lengths of duct.
- In-line equipment such as dampers, vanes, diffusers and hoods can all be included.
- The ducting model can be split into spool parts for manufacture and pre-assembly. Spool and isometric drawings can be produced automatically.
Outfitting integrates with AVEVA Multi-Discipline Supports for the design of ducting supports.
Outfitting contains many specialist functions for designing and detailing the steel structures found in marine projects. A wide range of layout/arrangement and detail component drawings can be produced, together with accurate weight and materials information.
- The Beams and Columns function defines a fully-connected network of structural sections, including all joint and fitting details. Simple structures can be created in a single step. The network, and the ability to define loads in the model, supports integration with structural analysis software.
- Customisable standard bracing configurations are included.
- Extensive use is made of parameterised catalogues covering the leading national and international standards for structural components such as section profiles, joints and fittings. Catalogue additions may be created to suit particular project or other requirements. Curved, tapered and built-up beams are all available.
- The Panels and Plates function defines flat panels of any shape, while the Walls and Floors function defines walls and floors of standard shapes.
- Fittings can be added to all types of beams, plates, walls, floors and so on, to apply items such as doors, windows, intelligent piping penetrations, stiffeners, lifting lugs and fire-proofing.
- Intelligent parametric penetrations can be defined and connected to both the structure and the penetrating item (for example, a pipe or duct) to maintain design intent as the model evolves.
- Joint catalogues contain standard types of steelwork joints including cleats, end plates and sniped ends. Parametric joint definitions ensure that, if a section is resized, its associated joints are resized automatically.
- Fittings catalogues contain a selection of parameterised structural and industrial fittings, including lifting lugs, stiffeners, windows and doors.
- A range of interfacing options is available to link to specialist analysis software and structural fabrication systems.
