Product Key Customer Benefits
|Allows Structural Designer to generate Structural parts from Design block and existing functional specifications defined with SFD...Designers can reuse Functional Design specifications such as Material, Grade, Thickness, Profile sections, Functional parts, that were previously defined with CATIA - Structure Functional Design 2 (SFD). This approach results in significant productivity gains. Tight integration within CATIA V5 also allows the designer to reuse standard productivity tools such as the sketcher, catalog, knowledge, etc.
Gives user dedicated features to manage structural systems and connections ... Users can use, define and manage such shipbuilding-specific parts and elements as : Plates (Deck, Bulkhead), Stiffeners on free edge (Web Frame), Stiffeners, Beams (Pillar, Stanchion). Users work with intelligent 3D objects to incorporate such information as material description, weight and other technological specifications important to production and analysis.
Provides a collection of industry-specific features to detail structural connections. CATIA - Ship Structure Detail Design 2 (SDD) is a ready-to-use application. As a turn-key system, it includes a customizable library of industry-standard ship parts and features to speed users along with their task. Users can use, define and manage such shipbuilding-specific parts and features as : Endcut (Profile extremity re-limitation), Slot (Profile Cutout), Connection detail (Bracket, Chock, Transition, Cover, Collar).
Provides productive tools to incorporate Shipyard rules and standards... Tight integration with CATIA V5 knowledgeware products enables the user to remain compliant with standards throughout the entire design concept process. In fact, the designer can check classification and design rules to avoid design inconsistencies while enhancing collaboration. CATIA - Ship Structure Detail Design 2 ( SDD) allows user to reuse shipyard know-how by creating templates based on expert specifications. The templates are compliant with industry skills and allow the user to automate complex tasks in a few clicks. The result is a significant increase in design productivity and comprehensive instantiation of corporate standards and design practices.
Allows definition of project resources at project level through the integration of Object Dictionary in PRM (Project Resources Management) ... Users have direct access to catalogs that are shared among all structural applications and various project resources. Because it is a centralized repository, the PRM dictionary avoids duplication of information and eliminates the needs for users to search multiple catalogs.
Integration with CATIA V5 Drafting application... CATIA - Ship Structure Detail Design 2 (SDD) is natively integrated with CATIA - Interactive Drafting 1 (ID1) and CATIA - Generative Drafting 2 (GDR). This tight integration allows user to perform extensive drawing generation from structure detailed design elements and comprehensive 3D models. Drafting is used for downstream purposes, such as fabrication, installation, reporting and maintenance.
