The process of shipbuilding is quite a complex one and comprises of several stages, each of which require a specific and a different kind of expertise. Over the years the ship-building process has been split into different modules, each of which is handled by a group of people possessing the expertise to perform the activities demanded of them.

Now this work flow, although classic in nature, is gradually changing and integrated design is gaining popularity where different parties communicate on the same design. This will be presented through a step by step design example utilizing BVB CAFE Ship Structural modeller and midas NFX total solution for mesh repair, solving and post-processing of marine type structures.
