CADMATIC is integral part of Meyer’s complex and extreme scale ship projects
Posted on February 17, 2022
CADMATIC's design and information management solutions have been used at Meyer’s Turku and Rostock shipyards for over 10 years and at its Papenburg yard since 2018. At Meyer Werft in Papenburg, CADMATIC was recently used to support ship design of a cruise liner with the capacity for 1,250 passengers and 144,000 gross register tons that is to be delivered this year.
"After using CADMATIC for more than three years in Papenburg, and longer in other locations, I am convinced that CADMATIC Outfitting Design and Information Management software is the best choice for our complex and extreme scale ship projects. Our partnership with CADMATIC is a key element in our journey to the next level of data-driven shipbuilding," says Meyer CEO Jan Meyer.
Complex cruise ship design requires best-in-class CAD tools
The use of CADMATIC allows Meyer’s designers to focus on innovation and solutions that realize the best layouts and arrangements, instead of spending time on routine checks and steps that software can efficiently execute.
“We are happy to announce that we have run through the whole design cycle and are successfully building an ocean giant with CADMATIC at Meyer Werft in Papenburg. CADMATIC is an open software platform that can be easily integrated into Meyer Werft software landscape. It streamlines the process from design to production and seamlessly links with materials management and other systems,” says Meyer CIO Paul Meyer, who was recently awarded with a 2nd place in the “CIO of the Year” competition for large companies in Germany.
Data migration and conversion in CADMATIC are performed entirely automatically to support Meyer’ digital strategy, and business processes include transfers of millions of parts between systems, ensuring production scheduling and execution accuracy.
"I am delighted that Meyer shares our vision of digital transformation and data-driven shipbuilding. Together we have shortened lead-times in design and construction, improved design quality, and harmonized the way of working across Meyer's shipyards and its subcontractors," says CADMATIC CEO Jukka Rantala.
CADMATIC has had deep roots in ship design and construction for more than 40 years. The shipbuilding-specific and open solution with its embedded shipbuilding know-how has been vital in helping shipyards around the globe to obtain visible and measurable benefits in completing high complexity projects in time and with high quality.
Currently, about 40% of active shipyards with commercial ship orders use CADMATIC around the globe. The projects designed with the solutions range from superyachts, OSV vessels, navy ships to highly complex cruise liners and offshore platforms.
