Siemens, Hyundai Collaboration To Develop CAD Program


Siemens will collaborate with South Korea’s Hyundai shipbuilding group to develop a new computer-aided design (CAD) program that would help shipyards accelerate digital transformation, says an article published on their site.

Promoting autonomous shipyard

The collaboration aims to gradually promote an autonomous smart shipyard by 2030. CAD is used to increase the productivity of designers, improve the quality of design, improve communications through documentation, and create a database for manufacturing. It is considered an important industrial art extensively used in many applications.

Siemens’ partners are Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering (KSOE) and Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries. The partners will push for joint research, in order to develop a data platform that enables digital twin while actively promoting digital transformation to enhance their competitiveness.


Today, shipyards have introduced advanced digital technologies and various design and production platforms for digital transformation that requires an efficient data platform for full computerization.

“Now is the best time for research and development on CAD exclusively for shipbuilding in order to promote a connected and predictable digital shipyard”

Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries CEO Kim Hyung-kwan said.

Along with efficiency in traffic, smart ships could minimize human errors that caused about 70 to 80% of marine accidents.
