In the wake of the recent announcement that Alion Canada has invested in SSI’s EnterprisePlatform Software, Seaspan’s Vancouver Shipyards have decided to invest in SSI’s innovative application for leveraging engineering information. The software will be used to aid in the process of designing, engineering and constructing projects for Canada’s National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS).
SSI EnterprisePlatform is software that enables the enormous wealth of engineering information stored in a ship’s virtual product model to be utilized by an entire team.
