3D Multi-discipline Ship Design Software for Accurate and Error-free Outfitting of All Types of Ships and Offshore Structures
AVEVA Outfitting combines years of experience from AVEVA’S plant design system with shipbuilding specific features to deliver the most powerful, multi-discipline 3D coordination and production solution. Benefit from parametric equipment models, specification-driven parts placement, integrated data management and intuitive model manipulation to deliver the highest-quality production deliverables
AVEVA Outfitting's power and productivity comes from its combination of specific shipbuilding features with many functions used in the best-in-class Plant Design Management System (AVEVA PDMS™), with which it shares a common database. This integration enables the most complex marine or offshore projects to be designed collaboratively in a common design environment. Moreover AVEVA Outfitting is seamlessly integrated with AVEVA’s Engineering products for master object management and functional design, providing flexibility under control over the iterative design spiral. The engineering backbone, in turn, offers endless possibilities to integrate with other enterprise systems, all under flexible and highly-customisable business control.
Ease of Use
Creating complex outfitting design requires rapid initial layout and often many adjustments and improvements as the design evolves. AVEVA Outfitting's functions have been developed over many years to make day-to-day design tasks quick and easy to perform. Graphical manipulators and workflow-orientated dialogues guide users through complex design scenarios. And, with Design in Context, users always have direct access to contextual information and documentation from other shipyard systems. Users can focus on the end product, not on the technology.
Quality and Manufacturability
AVEVA Outfitting embodies extensive rule- and catalogue-based functions, as well as years of industry experience so that design quality is built in as the work proceeds. A wide range of sophisticated design checks can be carried out to ensure the highest quality design. Typical of these is the ability to check piping designs for manufacturability on the actual production machines to be used. This helps designers create least-cost configurations, minimising waste and maximising shipyard productivity.
The more complex the vessel, the more important it is that hull and outfitting specialists can work together on the design. Outfitting designers create and develop their designs in context, with full visibility of the hull structure. Negotiating pipe routings, equipment placement or hull penetrations can be carried out quickly and clashes between hull and outfitting objects immediately highlighted for resolution with built-in features such as live clashing and penetration management.
Features and Capabilities
Optimum Materials and Resource Use
