Front End Engineering & Design AMGroup offers a unique model-centric engineering capability for the marine industry, which enables managing data within a unified modeling environment to automate the generation of products for various disciplines at different asset life cycle stages. The capability is based on a model-centric engineering environment that uses an advanced object-oriented modeling framework and underlying software language (AML) to enable automated rules-based generation of products from a central 3D product model. The technology and software developed by TechnoSoft fundamentally change the present CAD/CAM/CAE approach to integrated design and analysis processes.
As part of AMGroup’s marine platforms capabilities, our front end engineering and design services provide: • R ules-based generative modeling, enabling trade studies for model design configuration and shape optimization • Varying levels of modeling and analysis fidelity – capturing conceptual, pre-FEED and post-FEED methodologies • Concurrent design, analysis, optimization, and cost modeling • Ability to link multiple users over a network of distributed heterogeneous workstations
Benefits: The majority of CAD tools available on the market today are configured for creating 3D manufacturing models and 2D fabrication details. They lack the ability to rapidly feature and analyze designs within one unified modeling environment. AMGroup’s ability enables a broader set of platform design configurations, rather than being limited to simple parameter changes common during the concept design or front end engineering design stages. Using a system that has these greater capabilities brings many benefits to customers in the aviation, missile, automotive and marine platforms industries. These benefits include: • A nalytical modeling fidelity that is twice as great, in half the time and for half the cost • Product generation based on industry standard rules and specifications plus design and fabrication knowledge • Levels of model fidelity that can be varied to support design, manufacturing, analysis, costing, and testing • Automated detailing capabilities for structure and distributive systems • Automated regeneration of affected products • Configuration and product version control within the same environment • Distributive collaborative design
