The French company has chosen to use the Designed for Sea and Optimized Production for Sea, two industry solutions based on Dassault Systèmes 3DExperience, to integrate all design, engineering and manufacturing processes of a superyacht project in a single virtual environment for efficient, real-time collaboration.

Dassault Systèmes, a 3D design software specialist, has announced that NAOS Group, a leading company in the design of marine vehicles, is the first to deploy its 3DExperience platform to virtually create and manage the master reference of a superyacht project from digital design to production documentation.

The French company has chosen to use the Designed for Sea and Optimized Production for Sea industry solution experiences to integrate all design, engineering and manufacturing processes in a single virtual environment for efficient, real-time collaboration.

“We have used various shipbuilding CAD systems in the past to develop superyacht projects for shipyards, but wanted a new, more efficient approach that a business platform provides,” says NAOS president Roberto Prever.

“‘Designed for Sea and Optimized Production for Sea make it possible to seamlessly decide on design changes related to stability, basic design, advanced structural design, or safety,” he explains.

Prever says that with these tools the company can deliver a project’s entire design and engineering much more efficiently.

“In addition, the integration of manufacturing documentation gives our shipyard clients significant advantages to optimise their production and assembly costs,” he adds.

With these software, which are based on Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, NAOS can virtually experience a superyacht throughout its development.

Naval architecture and marine engineering services teams are connected to requirements, regulations and project planning, with full traceability.

NAOS can capture and reuse existing data, handle design changes with high reactivity, start planning manufacturing early in the design process, and deliver high-quality documentation for hull structure scantling and fabrication as well as for systems design and installation.

“Leading shipyards around the world strive to build high-value, high-performance ships that are tailored to specific customer requests, and the way in which they design and build can have huge business impacts,” comments Alain Houard, VP Marine & Offshore Industry at Dassault Systèmes.

“The 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables NAOS to design and engineer ships with high quality and sustainability, while fulfilling budget and time requirements, enhancing their reputation in the marketplace,” he concludes.
