New, Advanced and Value-added Innovative Ships

Worldwide competition is fierce, and in order to maintain world-leadership in complex, value-added and highly specialised vessels European shipbuilders must develop tailor-made innovative concepts that are efficient to design and build.

NAVAIS will develop a platform-based modular product family approach supported by the 3DEXPERIENCE® integrated business platform. This concept will increase efficiency in vessel design and flexibility in production networks. NAVAIS will specifically focus on passenger/road ferries and multi-use workboats integrating sustainability in the design of the ships. NAVAIS will support the transfer from an engineered-to-order business model to an assemble-to-order business model, which will allow shorter process lead-times, constant quality, reduced design and production costs and better integration of the SME supply chain, thereby increasing competitiveness of the European shipbuilding industry.
