Autoship Continues To Make Waves

Autoship Systems Corporation (ASC) is making waves in a host of maritime industries — they remain a leading software supplier with a range of products that include complete CAD/CAM suites, Stowage Planning Systems (SPS), real-time Hydrostatic Engines, and real-time Structural Strength simulation.

With a customer list that includes companies such as Newport News, ASC can never forget its CAD/CAM roots - and the tradition continues with major additions coming soon to both Autostructure and Autoship product lines. Starting October 2003, Autostructure includes a complete Production Manager program (structural fabrication functions such as part nesting onto stock material), and a parametric design feature that will create a deck beam, frame, edge stiffeners, and brackets in one operation. Already being developed for next year's Autoship 9 are brand-new, state-of-the-art surface editing capabilities.

ASC continues to demonstrate that it can create stowage planning, hydrostatic, and structural strength products for any maritime market anywhere in the world: offshore, Great Lakes bulk cargo, tanker, container, break bulk, and RoRo. For example, new customers include Haliburton Subsea, Maersk, Statoil AS, Trans Ocean, Rolls Royce, BP, Teekay Shipping, Nile Dutch Africa, Upper Lakes Group, and Algoma Central Marine. Implementation of ASC's two largest Stowage Planning Systems (SPS) are well underway at both Westwood Shipping Lines (bulk, break-bulk, container) and Wallenius Wilhelmsen Lines (RoRo, container).
