ISDP Integrated Ship Design and Production (Intergraph CAD software) ) software. ISDP is an integrated set of ship design software modules that provides a common 3D product data model for use by all engineering disciplines associated with the design, planning, production and construction of a ship. The latest version includes enhancements and new features that enhance ship design, construction and maintenance and improve integration with data management systems.
Driven by ongoing use in both new ship construction and life-cycle support, refinement of ISDP and its ongoing integration with Intergraph's Asset and Information Management / Ship Information Repository An information repository is an easy to deploy secondary tier of data storage that can comprise multiple, networked data storage technologies running on diverse operating systems, where data that no longer needs to be in primary storage is protected, classified according to captured (AIM/SIR), an enterprise data management system, provides users with an integrated, data-centric tool that is immediately available and capable of meeting military requirements for ship design and production. New features for this version include enhanced drawing extraction and annotation 1. (programming, compiler) annotation - Extra information associated with a particular point in a document or program. Annotations may be added either by a compiler or by the programmer. , added production planning Production planning

A distributed system consists of a collection of autonomous computers linked by a computer network and equipped with distributed system software. modeling and hull applicability, which enables use of data for multiple, alternatively configured ships. Built-in integration of the product model with the AIM/SIR solution provides configuration data management, supports legacy systems and allows users to develop, access and maintain ship configuration information for design, manufacturing and life-cycle support.
Key features of ISDP include:
-- Production-ready model - ISDP supports detailed design and production, including assembly management, lofting and steel cutting functions, pipe spool drawings, steel cutting functions and routing of piping and electrical systems. -- Integrated 2D and 3D design capabilities - ISDP integrates 2D system design with the 3D product model. The 3D model and associated walkthrough capabilities enhance understanding of the design by the entire team and contribute to reduced life-cycle cost. -- Fully associative model - Association among model components ensures that the software properly reflects changes, maintains dependencies and minimizes errors. -- Integrated data environment (IDE) support - ISDP posts engineering and design information to the product-centric SIR system, ensuring accurate configuration of objects in the ship. SIR manages configuration changes, facilitates controlled access through the corporate or program intranet and provides workflow, product structuring, redline and document management.
"We continue to enhance ISDP to help our customers reduce total ownership cost," said Tammi Thomas, manager of Marine and Life Cycle Solutions at Intergraph Solutions Group. "ISDP integrates fully with an IDE, a fact which contributes to significant long-term savings and meets military requirements. It's the only production-proven software environment deployable immediately that can meet this requirement today."
