ShipConstructor Software Ltd. and IFS North America are partnering to enhance the integration between their respective applications.

ShipConstructor provides shipbuilding CAD/CAM software based on the familiar AutoCAD program and IFS offers a project-based ERP system designed to support the asset lifecycle including design, fabrication, construction, procurement, aftermarket support, and financials, all of which are typical in ship building. The majority of the US Navy’s future fleet is being modeled with ShipConstructor software, while renowned shipbuilders such as Damen Shipyards and Babcock utilize IFS Applications, an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution.

Both companies support interoperability with multiple vendors and this agreement between the two companies is seen as an addition to the work the companies have already done to integrate with other competing applications.

This relationship is a natural evolution for both organizations. ShipConstructor and IFS have a long history of collaboration in the United States National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP) and both companies have several common clients such as Austal and Todd Pacific Shipyards.

“Both of our organizations are committed to providing solutions that best meet client needs,” said Darren Larkins, CEO of ShipConstructor Software Inc. “We want to enhance interoperability and integration to provide greater benefit to shipbuilders.”
