Cadmatic and CONTACT Software have agreed a strategic OEM partnership which will see Cadmatic use the CONTACT Elements platform and its apps to improve its shipbuilding-specific digital systems.
The move aims to enhance the full lifecycle of shipbuilding projects from design and engineering to prefabrication and production, as well as maintenance and operation, by integrating CONTACT Elements apps with Cadmatic’s design, engineering, and information management systems.
Cadmatic says that this integrated offering will bring “the first shipbuilding-specific PLM (product lifecycle management) solution to the market” and deliver time efficiency gains throughout the full shipbuilding process.
“Shipbuilding is a unique industry with unique needs and levels of complexity,” said Cadmatic CEO Jukka Rantala.
“Our PLM and digitalisation solution will come with in-built shipbuilding intelligence with the facilitation of data use and management to effectively support the life cycle of complex engineering systems at shipyards. It will reduce the need for consultancy and implementation services that are typically required for general PLM applications on the market.”
