Software applications from Siemens PLM Software have been incorporated by Revolution Design into their production process to increase efficiency, accelerate product development and reduce costs.
Revolution Design is a Tasmania-based high speed, lightweight catamaran manufacturer, well known for designing wave piercing catamarans built by Incat, one of the world’s premier builders of high speed vessels used by commercial businesses and military services around the globe.
Given the demands of the high speed marine market and a desire to significantly improve their existing process, Revolution Design wanted to increase production efficiency, accelerate product development turnaround as well as improve regulatory compliance and design approval process.
Revolution Design incorporated Siemens PLM Software’s Femap with NX Nastran software to improve design analysis and optimisation.
The software included a robust suite of statics, normal modes, buckling, basic non-linear and heat transfer capabilities. Femap with NX Nastran helped deliver design drawings faster to marine yards, optimise design analysis and cut down development costs.
Revolution Design selected EnDuraSim, a Siemens PLM Software Solution Partner to increase functionality and productivity based on EnDuraSim’s analysis, professional engineering, knowledge, expertise and training capabilities.
Key results achieved:
- Speeded up design turnaround while delivering higher quality designs
- Significantly reduced product development costs
- Reduced the use of outside contractors
- Improved process for meeting stringent industry compliance standards
