CASE STUDY Central Marine Design Bureau Implements AVEVA Marine to Maintain its Design Leadership Shipbuilding is today a highly concurrent process. Engineering & Design bureaus must work in parallel with construction, so keeping project data accurate throughout the project is crucial. The Central Marine Design Bureau (CMDB Almaz) realised that to achieve this they would need an integrated approach to Engineering & Design supported by the appropriate tools. Implementation CMDB Almaz decided to migrate all work onto a common platform supporting all project disciplines. The company already had extensive experience with Tribon, so in 2012 it migrated to AVEVA Marine™, AVEVA's specialised Integrated Engineering and Design solution for shipbuilders. Now, CMDB Almaz uses a wide range of AVEVA Marine products which together form AVEVA's Integrated Engineering & Design solution: AVEVA Hull Detailed Design™, AVEVA Outfitting™, AVEVA Cable Design™, AVEVA Assembly Planning™, AVEVA Hull Finite Element Modeller™, AVEVA Diagrams™, and AVEVA Review™. The company also uses AVEVA Global™ to synchronise project data among users and AVEVA NET Workhub and Dashboard™ to ensure the quality and consistency of all types of engineering information. Results and business benefits CMDB Almaz's deployment of AVEVA's Integrated Engineering and Design solution helped the company to cut project timescales and costs. Immediate benefits included coherence between design elements and the ability to work from a common database, and the more efficient design of flat and curved hulls. Automatic production of outfitting drawings and deliverables is also a big advantage, as is increased efficiency in system administration. CMDB Almaz now benefits from seamless integration between outfitting and hull design. The company is now able to deliver accurate and detailed 3D design models to construction teams. For CMDB Almaz, it is the only way to work; the bureau always delivers the 3D model to customers as a matter of course, unlike many other Russian design bureaus. This enables significant reduction in hull construction and outfitting time, and cost savings through being able to accurately procure and schedule materials. AVEVA Marine is flexible enough to support all Russian standards and requirements, which is important for CMDB Almaz as the majority of its clients are located in Russia. However, it also broadens the company's horizons, enabling it to confidently respond to opportunities to work globally. After implementation, key CMDB Almaz specialists agreed that AVEVA Marine is the number one system for CMDB Almaz in supporting design activities.
