        • Maintain
        • With the majority of a ship’s life taking place after it’s been built, it’s crucial to ensure that the organization has a clear picture of the vessel at all times.

About Huntington Ingalls Industries
For more than a century, Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) has built more ships in more ship classes than any other U.S. naval shipbuilder. Seventy percent of the US Naval combatants have been built by Huntington Ingalls Industries. 

Sample Projects: 
•    US Navy LHA-6 (Big Deck Amphibious Assault Ship) 
•    US Navy DDG-113, 114 (DDG-51 Arleigh Burke Class restart) 
•    USCG Legend Class National Security Cutters 

Switch away from CATIA
At one time, Ingalls Shipbuilding did most of its modeling in CATIA but has now transitioned to ShipConstructor due to ShipConstructor’s unparalleled production oriented output that is specifically geared toward the needs of the marine construction industry. ShipConstructor’s AutoCAD foundation has also helped Ingalls find and train workers more quickly since AutoCAD is the world’s most widely used CAD program. 

Efficiency and Quality Control
The usefulness of ShipConstructor was proven on Ingalls’ construction of the US Coast Guard’s Legend Class National Security Cutters. With a 4300 ton displacement, these cutters are the largest in the history of the Coast Guard but the Engineering Department completed the first vessel, USCGS Bertholf, on time and on budget. ShipConstructor’s quality control features such as interference checking and integration with Autodesk Navisworks were key contributors to this success.
