ShipConstructor Software Inc. is aggressively pursuing the needs of the international shipbuilding base by responding to industry desires to examine and develop the specifications for an electrical design module package. The project was recently selected for funding by the National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP) as an additional part of the larger Second-Tier Shipyard Design Enhancement Project II. The project, headed by Bender Shipbuilding & Repair Co., Inc. of Mobile, Alabama, includes an impressive cross-section of the shipbuilding industry including seven shipyards and four naval architect firms.

This project is an extension of the ongoing Second-Tier Design Enhancement Project II, which has already leveraged solid communication and support across all of the team members, assisting in ShipConstructor Software Inc.’s development of ShipConstructor 2006 with the revolutionary Database Driven Relational Object Model™ (DDROM™), currently undergoing extensive testing with project team members and key ShipConstructor users worldwide. This same level of communication and collaboration will be available as the needs and requirements of the users are examined to best define the specifications of the electrical design module.
The aim of the project is to examine the requirements and user needs to generate the detailed development specifications of an electrical design module for integration into the ShipConstructor software suite. This module will allow designers to take advantage of the advancements already made by ShipConstructor Software Inc. in streamlining the design and production process, and allow for rapid development of a product model. Coupled with the new DDROM technology, this presents a boon to the sophistication and possibilities of utilizing ShipConstructor.
The development of an electrical design module will allow electrical designers to enjoy the same tight integration and familiar user interface that other disciplines have already enjoyed using ShipConstructor. They will be able to work within the product model along with the rest of the design team, in the same database and model, increasing efficiency and collaboration amongst design teams.
