Abstract:

When we planned the Detail Engineering Module some time ago, we had set three objectives to be achieved 1. The verification of the data base loading by means of drawings which can be extracted with a few commands. 2. The development of a powerful program oriented towards engineering needs, which could be utilized in generation of the detail drawings. 3. Expanded data base loading and recalling capabilities for the entire SPADES System beyond the mere wire model, to include details of holes, stiffeners, seams, brackets and internal contours. Today, I am able to report that the first two objectives have been accomplished. In fact, the Detail Engineering Module is being used already in a production environment at a major shipyard.
