Latest FORAN build includes major upgrades
November 8, 2017 — As part of its Shipyard 4.0 Digitalization Strategy, Spanish engineering and technology group SENER has upgraded its FORAN CAD/CAM/CAE system. The improvements in the various design packages are incorporated in the latest FORAN build, launched last month. The naval architecture package has been enhanced with tools for reading the previous “classic” intact and damage stability definition files, making it possible to reuse legacy projects on the new platform, and includes new stability criteria, more flexibility for configuring reports, and different visualization and user interface improvements.
