BENEFITS


REDUCE ENGINEERING HOURS
Reusing existing work, and the underlying design intent, on new designs, sister ships, or within an ongoing project can significantly reduce the engineering man-hours required.

REDUCE ERRORS AND REWORK
Reuse not only lowers the effort required to complete a design, it also reduces errors and rework as the existing work has likely been built and checked in the past to a degree that a new design cannot have been.

STANDARDIZE PRODUCTION
Reusing standard blocks, systems or standards to a significant degree reduces the variation of designs seen on the shop floor and allows for a greater degree of optimization in production processes.

LEVERAGE EXPERIENCE
By reusing existing designs that have been created or approved by more experienced engineers, junior designers or draftsmen can be more effective sooner.

FEATURES


•    Copy part of an existing model between projects
•    Snapshot the 3D model, design intent and production drawings for reuse
•    Overwrite existing blocks or systems with modified information from sister ships
