Beaglefrom NDES is a generic name of 3D data usage solutions for the shipbuilding industry. Beagle provides the platform used to share and to make the most of 3D ship information or design/production information.
Concrete purposes of Beagle are information exchange among processes, review and utilization of 3D data at production sites. Beagle significantly contributes to integration (synthesis) and efficiency (optimization) of shipbuilding operations.
Beagle View,a 3D viewer, plays a leading role in the Beagle solution.
Using Beagle View, you can view 3D data (hull and outfitting data) from various shipbuilding CAD systems such as GRADE/HULL (developed/maintained by NDES) . In addition, you can use 3D data effectively in all processes of shipbuilding operations by adding new information on Beagle View.
Beagle View is linked to the data management system SPACE-Doc (developed/maintained by NDES). SPACE-Doc can systematically manage not only 3D hull information converted from 3D CAD systems but also drawings and specifications as well as documents about the amount of materials to be managed and about operating instructions. In addition, you can use data in a high-security state in terms of confidentiality.
When you view, edit, or save 3D data and its associated information managed on SPACE-Doc, Beagle View can distribute information useful for shipbuilding operations.
For example, the information can be used effectively in the following cases: (1) In downstream design, view the 3D hull information generated in upstream design, (2) Calculate the necessary amount of materials based on the results of downstream design used in a ship designed in the past and use the calculated value for the next upstream design, (3) Use the 3D hull information generated in upstream design for process planning, and (4) Use the 3D hull information generated in downstream design for production consideration and production preparation.
