Designed for Rapid Definition and Analysis During the Contract and the Structural Design Phases of a Project

AVEVA Initial Design is an integrated suite of advanced, yet cost-effective and practical, ship-design tools developed for naval architects and design engineers. The application is best used as the front end of the complete, integrated AVEVA Marine solution, but it can also be used on its own for the conceptual parts of the design.

Its close integration with other AVEVA Marine applications ensures smooth and rapid design development on projects taken into basic and detailed design.
