This includes use of a Computer Aided Design (CAD) Toolset, which allows multiple-access and management of a variety of data from all ship disciplines.
The scope of supply under the contract and the number of licences is expected to increase according to the activity at the shipyard.
“With FORAN we cover all the design and production needs, so we simply concentrate in the ship itself,” said Ghani Japlus, engineering manager at Oakwell Shipyard.
“That’s a big step forward when it comes to compete with other shipyards, leaving more resources to gain in design quality. Yet FORAN has proven to be flexible and close to the customer, so we feel there’s support whenever we need it.”
