The competitive realities of shipbuilding drive those in our industry to consistently focus on the next critical milestone. Everything from financing to timelines play a part. Quickly getting engineering teams up to speed can make the difference between meeting those milestones or missing them 


How does an organization ensure their teams have the right knowledge? 

Technology that is intuitive and allows experienced users to learn about new features while they work is one effective way. When starting from a low experience level, the “learn while you work” approach creates risks 

  • Knowledge gaps that slow down work later on 
  • Rework at critical project stages.  
  • For a complete novice – someone coming in at zero – learning while they woradds overhead for the entire team. 

Helping novice users get up to speed, no matter their previous exposure, is an immensely powerful way to align the goals of design and engineering teams with the overall business goals of a shipbuilder. Recognizing this, we knew that creating a solution for this problem would make it easier for shipbuilders to focus on shipbuilding. 


Novice User Training Goals 

Our goals are simple, we want to: 

  • Introduce novice users to ShipConstructor through a simple project with concrete milestones in quick, concise stages. 
  • Align the onboarding needs of the new hire, their team, and the organization as a whole. 
  • Show the power and ease of use of ShipConstructor by going from 2D line drawings to a 3D model. 

Introducing Project Zero 

Achieving those goals is Project Zero, providing an effective bridge between the training needs of novice ShipConstructor userswhile recognizing the realities of the shipbuilding industry. There has never been a way to explore and understand ShipConstructor quicker and easier than by working through the different parts of the Project Zero curriculum.  

By mitigating the risk of knowledge gaps resulting in unforeseen rework down the road through clear training during the onboarding processProject Zero offers a tangible benefit to help with project successClear, distinct stages make it easy to align the training time invested with what the organization needs to get done today. 


What to Expect 

Starting this week, SSI MyLearning members will be able to access the first of Project Zero’s 10 partsTogether, the parts will walk a user through the design process of a 5m vessel from 2D AutoCAD line drawings all the way through to the creation of a 3D model and exporting that model to Navisworks. Subsequent parts will be released weekly. Each part of the curriculum consists of a video and accompanying PDF.
