BIM in shipbuilding

Business, New Tools.
What is BIM?
BIM is a software
approach whereby massive amounts of information
about a construction project are stored within a
“virtual model”. Autodesk is the leader in this
field and SSI, whose ShipConstructor software is
based on the Autodesk platform, has applied this
concept in a new form, tailored to shipbuilding,
called MIM (Marine Information Modeling).
Real world applications of BIM (MIM)
Norway is an ideal
setting for a conference on this subject as Norway
is a leader in ship design and engineering. An
excellent Norwegian example of the BIM approach in
practice can be shown by the company
Skipskompetanse AS uses ShipConstructor software
to produce extremely sophisticated designs for the
fish farming industry such as the Ro-Arctic Live
Fish Carrier shown above.
