Shin Kurushima Dockyard (SKDY), recognized as one of the most productive shipyards worldwide, has standardized on Intergraph SmartMarine 3D design and engineering software. After an intensive two-year benchmark study, SKDY found that SmartMarine 3D will increase productivity, promote global worksharing, and reduce labor costs.
“We are pleased with the results of our benchmark that led to our selection of SmartMarine 3D and the best next-generation solutions available for ship design and production,” said Isshin Fujii, general manager, Ship Design Department of SKDY. “We chose to standardize on SmartMarine 3D because it offers proven efficiency and design automation to enable us to reduce the costs and time of building ships.”
SKDY enjoyed significant productivity improvements in the benchmark study and expects even further improvements in productivity and production planning using SmartMarine 3D’s automated structure detailing. Labor costs will be reduced by using global worksharing from the company’s yards in Japan to its offices in Indonesia . Read more about SKDY’s decision.
