NAPA contains all the functions necessary for the early design of any floating ship so that an optimum design solution is obtained before the contract.
Accurate results quickly
In the early design stages NAPA provides reliable and accurate information quickly. It is essential that you can make extensive design changes to the geometry swiftly and easily. You can benefit from NAPA's parametric object definitions, and in NAPA you model the surfaces and compartments into 3D right from the beginning. With the wide variety of functionality that NAPA offers you, you can perform the relevant Naval Architectural analyses, make changes and re-evaluate the design to ensure that it is technically feasible and that it satisfies the requirements of the nature, the ship owner, the shipyard and the authorities.
Save time when studying the variations and finding the best solution. NAPA has unequalled speed at which you can investigate the design variations and find the optimum alternative. NAPA offers you an integrated package with a wide variety of applications needed in ship design. NAPA Manager applications help you in the process of making the 3D model and getting the results. After contract you take your design further in NAPA by adding more information to the model and detailing the geometry. The same modules serve the needs of basic design, design approval and delivery documentation.
