Dutch software developer Shipbuilder has unveiled its new and revolutionary virtual reality module Shipbuilder VR during the recent Shipbuilder and Relatics Client Day.

“Shipbuilder VR allows the real-time publication of project management data, technical data and logistical data in 3D on smartphones, tablets and PCs,” said Shipbuilder director Geert Schouten. “This enables users to retrieve all the information relevant to spaces within a vessel and visualise them as if they were actually on board. Shipbuilder VR offers a highly attractive form of information management and we expect that this new type of accessible, integrated information provision will become the standard in our industry.”

Schouten claims that Shipbuilder VR has major benefits for yards and operators alike: “Shipbuilder VR enables mechanics to study the space in which they will be working and immediately see which materials they will need for construction or maintenance work before they go to the yard. They can also view the drawings which belong to the space they are virtually observing and examine other available information. This saves a lot of time and money because they can set out well prepared and will always have the latest correct information at hand.”

Cees Verkerk, manager of Marketing & Communications at Shipbuilder, continued: “Shipbuilder VR has such added value because humans are visually oriented. By translating the plain, dry information into Shipbuilder VR, we make the context visible and let the data speak, as it were. This rapidly improves the quality of monitoring and, therefore, data. Changes to data in our Shipbuilder software are translated into VR in real time, creating an uncluttered control system.”
