From the first stage of the conceptual design, through the initial and classification designs to the detail engineering, FORAN is a fundamental tool to reduce costs and to improve the productivity in the design and construction of vessels.
The System is applicable to all types of ships, regardless of their size, and can be fully customised to the particular requirements of each user.
FORAN represents the leading edge CAD/CAM/CAE technology in shipbuilding, providing an integrated solution for the complete design of the ship, including hull forms definition, naval architecture calculations, hull structure, outfitting, electrical and accommodation spaces, which allows the application of the concurrent engineering concept in a distributed design office environment.
