Space & Arrangement Design

Create ship spaces to support cross-discipline planning and develop the general arrangement plan

available on premise

The development of any large ship or platform is a significant undertaking. Space is limited so it is essential to define the various partitions such as fire zones, decks, watertight compartments, as well as the way major equipment is arranged. Shipyards also need to effectively communicate and coordinate general planning and layout information across all disciplines throughout the development process.

Space & Arrangement Design enables engineers to subdivide the ship into spaces in an intelligent and efficient manner. It also provides the ability to effectively arrange all major equipment. Complying with customer layout requirements can be easily managed using embedded rules. Thanks to integrated simulation and analysis, engineers can evaluate different layout options and identify the best alternatives. Once the general arrangement is complete, engineers can generate the general arrangement plan and associated drawings, which are critical for certification and planning.
