CENIT NAVAL ARCHITECT Optimizes Ship and Yacht Design
Monaco Yacht Show (Monaco), September 24, 2008 – Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Nasdaq: DASTY; Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, and CENIT AG, a DS CAA partner and Value Added Reseller, today announced the launch of CENIT NAVAL ARCHITECT, an add-on product of the CENIT MARINE product family, which integrates weight evolution management, hydrostatic and stability analysis in the CATIA solutions for yachts and ships.
The new CENIT NAVAL ARCHITECT product and Dassault Systèmes’ CATIA provide a breakthrough end-to-end solution that streamlines the boat design and engineering process to fully enable the naval architecture design spiral.
“CENIT NAVAL ARCHITECT enables integrated boat design in CATIA, allowing shipyards, marine engineering companies and naval architects to cut down development times dramatically, reduce costs and efficiently optimize areas of ship development like weight management, hydrostatics and stability,” says François Mathieu, yacht market development leader, Dassault Systèmes.
Naval architects traditionally use disconnected solutions for weight definition, shape modelling, structure and layout drawings, and hydrostatic and stability calculations based on 2D offsets methodology. Combined with CATIA, CENIT NAVAL ARCHITECT offers a powerful innovation platform that integrates the complete process from shapes design to stability and structure calculations for the development of increasingly audacious boat designs. Using MAAT Hydro+ volume-based computation engine, CENIT NAVAL ARCHITECT facilitates advanced hydrostatic and stability calculations with real-time simulations as well as automatic report generation in compliance with classification societies’ requirements.
“Our new software NAVAL ARCHITECT is an important addition to our wide range of software solutions and thus a significant component for an important industry,” stresses Kurt Bengel, member of the board at CENIT. “With the new software, ship builders can now also benefit from the advantages of an integrated solution.”
Some of the most famous yacht designers, naval architects, small/large yacht shipyards and suppliers across the globe are using Dassault Systèmes solutions based on CATIA. Dassault Systèmes provides yacht professionals from small and large yacht builders to naval architects and subcontractors with packages dedicated to their specific line of business. These solutions address the associated processes with the right styling, hull design integrating hydrostatic calculations, structure, and composite design products, industry methodologies and best practices. CENIT NAVAL ARCHITECT offers a wide variety of CATIA integrated functionalities for the ship and yacht building specific development processes.
Dassault Systèmes and CENIT will be present at the Monaco Yacht Show September 24-27, 2008 at booth QP62.
The company has been active since 1988 as specialists for Product Lifecycle Management, Enterprise Information Management solutions and Application Management Outsourcing.
