Siemens Simcenter enables naval architects and shipyards to design, develop, construct, and support more efficiently advanced naval, commercial and offshore platforms, reducing the total cost and improving fleet performance. The shipbuilding industry is being presented with a unique opportunity as operators aggressively upgrade their fleets to meet the need for more energy efficient, reliable and environmentally friendly ships with better overall performance and lower total operating costs.

Designing and building highly-complex ships and stationary platforms while facing intense global competition and price pressure as well as meeting operational requirements over the lifespan of a ship is a daunting task. Vessels and stationary platforms must withstand the long-term effects of deep water environments. They are built in small production runs, are highly customized and require an enormous amount of scientific knowledge and production technology.
