ShipConstructor 2015 R2 & Enhanced Communication
A major determinant of shipbuilding productivity is clear communication. The SSI's ShipConstructor 2015 R2 distinguishes this with modified improvements focused on how information is conveyed.
Improve the Welding Processes
SSI continues to make advancements in regard to how ShipConstructor facilitates the modeling and management of welding. Welding can represent 20-30% of production hours and approximately 10% of total cost. Therefore, improvements in this area have immediate bottom line implications.
Adopt Japanese-Style Advanced Engineering/Production Techniques
ShipConstructor 2015 R2 further facilitates communication, quality, and efficiency by enabling the seamless adoption of advanced Japanese-style engineering and production techniques. This is accomplished via the introduction of catalog-based standards to dynamically manage property markings on parts.
Gain Early Access to Productivity Enhancements
The Subscription Advantage Pack for this release allows ShipConstructor Subscribers to become early adopters of features with related communication enhancing benefits. A UDA editor allows User Defined Attributes to be managed on a global basis. A new Weld Manager Palette makes the most relevant welding information more easily apparent.
Finally, the Subscription Advantage Pack for this release includes ShipConstructor Sheet Sets. This feature speeds up the creation of production packages by adding ShipConstructor functionality to the Autodesk Sheet Set tool which allows documentation to be easily grouped and managed as sets, a key part of generating production packages.
