NAPA offers functionality beyond the typical ship design and classification work that can be utilized by different types of organisations.

NAPA is used by a large number of model basins, research institutes and universities. There are several new interesting subsystems in NAPA, such as optimization and Flooding Simulation, which are also used for studying optimum designs and future concepts. CFD and other hydrodynamics tools can be used together with flexible hull form definitions for various studies. It is also beneficial for students to get NAPA experience during their studies as a large part of the industry is using NAPA and therefore, NAPA skills may be considered a valuable asset.

Examples of other organisations finding NAPA beneficial are, among others, equipment manufacturers and organisations working with emergency response.
