HHI has signed a technical cooperation agreement for the development of next-generation design systems.
Hyundai Heavy Industries has signed a technical cooperation agreement with a Finland-based technology supplier for the development of next-generation design systems.
The design systems, which include artificial intelligence, Big Data analysis, advanced 3D modelling and drawing automation, will form the basis of digital twins for ship design.
Jukka Rantala, the ceo of Cadmatic, noted that the project extended beyond the development of a next-generation design system and included a digital capability enhancement project.
The scope of the agreement also covered Cadmatic’s information management tools such as the eShare information portal to engineering, maintenance, and operation data, the eBrowser file-based 3D viewer and project review tool, as well as our eGo tablet solution.
“We will focus all our technologies and capabilities to provide a total solution for smart design operation at HHI. We will do our best to ensure a successful transition to a completely digitalized system,” says Mr. Rantala.
The Motorship notes that HHI has already integrated engineering and design software solutions into its manufacturing process, to improve coordination between different teams and eliminate inefficiencies. One particular advantage of Cadmatic’s data systems solution is that changes can be efficiently implemented while the consistency of data can be retained.
Cadmatic established a South Korean representative office in 2019 as well as a domestic sales and technical support system.
