. The interface will result in significantly greater efficiencies in the classification process for Lloyd's Register classed ships.

IntelliShip coupled with this new interface will improve the overall ship design, certification, construction and commissioning process. Shipyards and ship designers can readily check the model created in IntelliShip against Lloyd's Register's classification rules, eliminating redundant modeling and reducing errors. Since IntelliShip is rule based See rules based. , checks early in the design cycle automatically carry over to detailed design and construction.

, Lloyd's Register's Design Systems Software Integration Group Manager said, "Lloyd's Register is committed to providing interfaces to the software design applications used by ship designers. IntelliShip is among the leading solutions for shipbuilding design and manufacturing, so creating an interface to our assessment applications is a strategic decision that will drive efficiency and create value for users of both organizations' software applications."

The interface between IntelliShip and Lloyd's Register assessment applications will enable ship designers to check their designs against class requirements more easily, and this will help to increase the efficiency of the initial design process.

The interface between IntelliShip and Lloyd's Register's RulesCalc and ShipRight SDA will be created using the open data exchange tools contained within Lloyd's Register's existing Interface Toolkit. "The interface fits with our goal of providing risk management solutions to enhance the quality, safety, environmental and business performance of our clients," said Roberts.

"Intergraph is pleased that Lloyd's Register can quickly take advantage of our open data exchange layer to provide additional value to our mutual clients. This integration is in line with our vision of reducing the design-build cycle for ships and marine structures," said Phillippe Marceau, Executive Vice President of Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) Refers to that region of the world. For example, one might see products packaged differently for the UK, EMEA and Asia Pacific markets. ), Intergraph Power, Process & Marine.

Intergraph's IntelliShip is a knowledge-based, integrated 3D modeling and 2D engineering software that streamlines shipbuilding, appreciably lowering manpower and material costs and significantly reducing overall outlays and schedules.

Lloyd's Register's RulesCalc helps to ensure that ship designs will comply with Lloyd's Register's Rules and Regulations for the Classification of Ships prior to plans being submitted for approval. RulesCalc supports the official publication International Association of Classification Societies The introduction to this article provides insufficient context for those unfamiliar with the subject matter.

Data exchange interfaces to RulesCalc and ShipRight SDA will be built using the Lloyd's Register's Interface Toolkit, which provides an open and 'available to all' interface solution to third-party ship design packages. The Interface Toolkit contains the components and supporting documents to implement successful data transfer to Lloyd's Register's assessment applications.
