SSI CEO Darren Larkins continues to consult with shipbuilders around the globe on how to leverage 3D Product Data Models using Autodesk technology.
His next presentation on 3D Product Data Models will be October 22 at the shipbuilding and offshore show KORMARINE in Busan.
Larkins will demonstrate the shortcomings of traditional methods such as using drawings, Excel files and supplementary 3D viewers, and will highlight how a better approach utilizes neutral formats and platformization.
For more than 13 years Larkins has met with shipbuilders around the world, developing an understanding of industry challenges and global best practices. In response to shipbuilders' call for true concurrent engineering capabilities, he co-invented the SSI’s Database Driven Relational Object Modeling software technology. He is consulted by government and industry officials worldwide on applying software solutions to marine construction and has been internationally recognized for his published papers. Larkins played a lead role in the U.S. National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP) - Second Tier Shipyard Design Enhancement Project (STSDEP) and projects focused on Design for Production (DFP). He is a longstanding member of SNAME and an associate member of RINA.
