AVEVA announced today that Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries (HSHI), one of the world’s largest shipbuilders, has successfully completed its upgrade from Tribon M3 software to AVEVA Marine for engineering, design and production. HSHI has used AVEVA’s legacy Tribon M3 design software very successfully for many years, but chose to upgrade to the very latest AVEVA Marine software portfolio after a thorough evaluation that identified major advantages in the new platform, including its powerful features such as customisation.

“One of the big benefits we found when upgrading to AVEVA Marine is its comprehensive and powerful capabilities for customisation,” said Ok Jae Huh, Senior Vice President, Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries. “AVEVA Marine is very user friendly. It will help keep us competitive as it includes efficient tools for the easy development of our own specialised scripts (macros) that can be adapted to the demands of our customers around the world.”

Mr Huh continued, “The difficult economic conditions in the marine industry, combined with new opportunities in the Offshore and Plant markets, have seen a diversification in the traditional shipbuilding industry. As the result of the merging of the AVEVA PDMS and the Tribon hull technologies, AVEVA Marine is responding to these market changes and is now one of the best names in the CAD industry for ships, offshore facilities and plants.”

“HSHI has been a long-standing AVEVA customer and we have worked very closely with its team to help develop its long-term strategic direction for shipbuilding”, added Eun Joo Park, Senior Vice President – Korea & Japan, AVEVA.  “Organisations like HSHI who have migrated from Tribon M3 to AVEVA Marine have benefitted from cost savings across all disciplines as a result of our Integrated Engineering & Design approach. AVEVA Marine combines the world’s best hull design applications with the best outfitting capability using AVEVA’s powerful object-centric technology.  It integrates completely into a much larger production environment, which is why customers are realising such significant project savings.”

All AVEVA Marine products are part of AVEVA’s Integrated Engineering & Design approach that improves project efficiency and reduces engineering and design costs by offering complementary products that draw on common processes, disciplines and deliverables, through a single managed information model. AVEVA Marine’s set of integrated applications were created specifically for the unique processes of the engineering and design of ship and offshore structures, design management and the generation of accurate production information.
