CAFE team members Svemir Bralić (BVB, Croatia) and Vassilios Zagkas (SimFWD P.C, Greece) presented the CAFE software and its features and capabilities at the 13th International Conference on Computer Applications and Information Technology in the Maritime Industries (COMPIT) that took place in Redworth, UK, from 12th to 14th of May 2014. 

 

The paper “Real time collaborative design of ship and offshore structures using BVB CAFE” presented CAFE as a unique platform developed for collaborative design of complex ships and offshore structures that enables two or more parties involved in structure lifecycle to work simultaneously during the whole process (i.e. ship-owner, fleet managers, designer, class society, shipyard etc. with one or more of its representatives). This paper presents the lifecycle capabilities of the software through a step by step collaborative design of an Ice Class Tanker using the enhanced and simplified man-model interaction, and it is available here.
