Ship design software and ship information management software in one
Fast Track your way to an improved shipbuilding process
Competitive advantages with a shared digital ship model
Design ships to match customer requirements, easily perform feasibility studies and efficiently lay the basis for the ship’s digital twin.
Create 2D and 3D visualizations to share with other stakeholders, prepare marketing materials or visualize complex spatial relations.
Keep track of the current project status, utilize data from previous projects to conduct plausibility checks to minimize risks.
Share information across various stakeholders, including internal communication across departments as well as external communication with other organizations.
Derive quantities, areas, volumes, and other key figures directly from the model to have a reliable basis for weight, time, cost, and other estimations.
Rethinking Software for Ship Design
Naval Architect is a cloud-native design platform that connects stakeholders of shipbuilding projects in order to get the right information to the right people at the right time.

While other shipbuilding software merely focuses on the improvement of isolated tasks, Naval Architect addresses the overall process. It fundamentally changes how stakeholders engage and interact in shipbuilding projects by moving from a process with information distributed across technical drawings, CAD data, and other documents towards a shared digital representation of the ship.
This central digital ship model serves as a reliable “single source of truth” for all stakeholders to collaboratively work on, which simplifies both ship project management and the ship design process.
We believe that optimizing the design phase is the best way to avoid unwanted additional costs caused by time delay, planning errors and poor change management. Our ship design software can be applied from project start to also cover the early ship building process where the improvement potential is high.
Ship Information Modeling (SIM)
Consistent information throughout your project
Increase design efficiency and minimize planning errors.
Efficient teamwork and coordination with all stakeholders
Save time and accelerate the ship building process.
Data and Change Management
Maximum transparency on all changes and updates
Reduce the coordination effort and ensure data consistency.
Reliable data for optimized decision-making
Minimize project risks and increase your competitive advantage.
Build a digital ship model which combines geometrical and non-geometrical information in one unified place. Derive quantities, areas, volumes, and other key figures directly from the model to have a reliable basis for weight, time, cost, and other estimations.
Create detailed CAD models and drawings containing the information required to manufacture parts, assemblies and systems.
Rapid 3D Ship Design:
Draw in 2D plan views to create a 3D model combining the speed of 2D drawings with the added value of a true 3D model.
Access the software through the web browser and avoid the hassles of software installation and maintenance. Scale with your business needs based on a flexible subscription and delivery model.
Partner Integration & Collaboration:
Collaborate across departments, suppliers, subcontractors, and other partners in shipbuilding projects. Integrate all stakeholders to work on the project at the same time. Simply share status updates and information.
Roles & Rights Management:
Control precisely who can view, edit and export which information in your project.
Change & Configuration Management:
Keep track on all versions and provide a transparent project status to all users. Implement an efficient change and configuration management based on branching & merging.
Access and modify your project data through an open and well-documented application interface (API). Export project data including geometric data to various standard file formats.
Create stunning 2D/3D visualizations to share with other stakeholders, prepare marketing materials or visualize complex spatial relations.
