Catalog Additions and Changes

ShipConstructor 2015 contains a significant augmentation that will immediately be of benefit: the addition of several new catalogs.These catalogs will help users quickly and accurately model components to correct specifications, increasing productivity and quality; both significant concerns of management and employees downstream in production. These catalog additions and changes include the following XML standard templates:

• Added PipeCatalog-ASME-CarbonSteel.XML
• Added ImperialWeldStandards.XML
• Added MetricWeldStandards.XML

Of particular note are the details related to the addition of the catalog for ASME Carbon Steel Pipe. It covers the standardization of dimensions of welded and seamless wrought steel pipe for high and low temperatures and pressures. The catalog contains a wide range of schedule 40/80 carbon steel pipes, elbows, tees, caps, connectors, crosses and reducers from the ASME B 16.11, 16.5, 16.9 and 36.10 standards. It also includes a set of end treatments (flanges, butt welds, saddles, socket welds, sockolets and plain), including flanges and couplings from Class 150 and 300.


EnterprisePlatform Compatability

press-release-enterprise-platform

An exciting new capability of ShipConstructor 2015 is its integration with SSI’s new EnterprisePlatform line of products. SSI EnterprisePlatform enables the enormous wealth of engineering information available in a product data model such as the ShipConstructor Marine Information Model (MIM), to be efficiently shared with, and easily accessed by, multiple individuals, software applications and production equipment utilized in the shipbuilding process. This includes people, programs and processes outside of the Engineering department. The SSI EnterprisePlatform generates information in the correct format and representation needed for varying use cases and brings a product-focused approach to enterprise-wide availability of engineering data that is cost-effective, scalable, configurable, consistent, and transparent. PublisherLT is the first in the SSI EnterprisePlatform line of products and it is being released at the same time as ShipConstructor 2015.

Modernized Licensing Technology

SSI has modernized the licensing technology for ShipConstructor 2015. This means that it will utilize purely software-based licensing rather than hardware locks/licenses. The advantages of this newer technology are:

• Faster turnaround time for replacement of corrupted files.
• State of the art encryption and piracy protection
• Capability for future support of some of the latest licensing capabilities:
   a. Roaming licensing and the management of roaming licenses
   b. Fallback/Failsafe/redundant servers
   c. Check-In and Check-Out of licenses.
