In order to build-up simulation models for ship
production most efficiently and effectively Flensburger
shipyard started to develop a simulation toolkit in the year
2000. Predefined simulation functions custom made for
shipbuolding are now available in this library and they can
simply be adjusted to every individual application by
changing their parameters. The Simulation Toolkit for
shipbuilding now is the basis for the corporate work
within SimCoMar. It is maintained, further developend and
used by and within the SimCoMar community.
Using the STS the build-up time for a simulation modul
can be drastically reduced. The development of
simulation models for shipyards is now a matter of weeks
not months nor years. Another advantage is the reliability
of the tools because of the variety of test environments
within the user community.
