EFFECTIVE USAGE OF CAE/CAM IN SHIPBUILDING: DREAM OR REALITY FOR MEDIUM AND SMALLER SIZED SHIPYARDS?

This paper presents experience on the use of Computer Aided Engineering (CAE)/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) and the vision on the possible benefits for medium and smaller sized shipyards. The aim of the paper is to determine what possibilities and benefits of CAE and CAM are now available and economical for medium and smaller sized shipyards and how these benefits can become reality now within a period of weeks, with a state-of-the-art, open, flexible, modular CAE/CAM-system, while bigger shipyards began years ago with long lasting investment programs and months of training and implementation.
