NAPA Steel Customer Experiences:

"SHI believes that NAPA Steel is an effective solution to improve our design process. I was delighted to see NAPA team's dedication to meet our development requests related to NAPA Steel. I expect that NAPA Steel will contribute to highly efficient design process."
B.S. Kang, Vice President of Engineering Division 2, Samsung Heavy Industries Co., Ltd.

"Decision to produce majority of the plan approval drawing with NAPA Steel involved a change in STX Turku Shipyard 3D design process. However, the benefits in the overall design efficiency and quality promoted the change. I am happy to see the dedication shown by STX´s own personnel and the NAPA team to implement this change."
Ari Niemelä, Head of Structural Approval Design Department, Meyer Turku

"NAPA Steel has been used at MTI for the early design stages and applied for weight and CoG control, FEM and interface with outfitting system named CADMATIC. It is working successfully and we find big benefits in using NAPA Steel. Obviously, our design process has been well developed with NAPA Steel, and NAPA Steel is the successful design foundation in our company."
Won-Don Kim, President, Marine Technology & Information Co. Ltd.

"We have been systematically developing our way of using NAPA Steel, and it is now an essential part of our design process covering many activities from modeling to drawing and FEM. NAPA Steel has proven to be a system which provides great flexibility for our specific needs, and it supports our requirements of continuous increase of productivity. Results already achieved have proved NAPA Steel to be the correct choice for us."
Carsten Lindt, Hull Design Group, Meyer Werft

"NAPA Steel enables both speeding-up and enhancing the design process. Thanks to many useful functions, designers can create approval drawings and FE-models and carry out design optimization in the early design phase. In addition, NAPA Steel has a big potential for design innovation by linking with class rules. ClassNK sees that NAPA Steel is the most advanced design system available today."
