We as NAVAIS partner invite you to participate in the EC-funded NAVAIS project webinar series. 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.

The NAVAIS project is developing a platform-based modular product family approach supported by the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform. This concept will increase efficiency in vessel design and flexibility in production networks. The project focuses 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.


Through these webinars we will not only inform you on the progress the project is making, but also get you up to speed on several other related developments, including the EC-funded TrAM project and inspiration from outside the marine industry.

First webinar, 11 February from 15:30 – 17:00

Model Based Systems Engineering – new concepts and how “standardization” can benefit owners;
. Why a structured approach to Requirements Functional Logical Physical (RFLP) – presented by Delft University
. Configure to Order – impact on ship contracting as compared to Engineer To Order – presented by Damen
. Model Based Systems Engineering – software system – presented by Dassault Systèmes

Second webinar, 18 February from 15:30 – 17:00

Modular Design & Engineering – Sustainable, low-impact platform-based ship design;
. System engineering principles in shipbuilding – a demo case example – (Damen);
. Environmental impact reduction – optimization (Bureau Veritas)
. Underwater Radiated Noise (URN) prediction tools – designing for low URN in early design stages (MARIN)

Third & fourth webinar, 11 March and 18 March from 15:30 – 17:00
