According to the marketing of the request of the SMEs shipyards. the purpose of the present software was established.
Dedicaced to naval architects and shipyards, the module of weight estimation offers a considerable help to determine the weight in preliminary design stage of tug boats (up to 70 m), trawlers (up to 70 m) and cargoes (up to 110 m). The weight estimation is based on an analysis of existing ships using statistical regression functions to provide:
-the light weight of ships;
-the center of gravity / base line;
-the center of gravity / PPAR.
The electrical balance module is based on the analysis of existing building ships data and
allow to determine :
-the electrical balance of ships (direct and alternative current);
-the cable specification, their lengths and their installation cost / hour
These modules can be coupled with others navals modules and data base.
