Damen Sales Configurator
Working with Damen Shipyards on a configurator for the past years have been a great experience. We’ve been able to create an extremely interesting piece of technology, enabling Damen Shipyards to create an even more efficient sales and production process. This is due to the fact that they use the configurator for their entire sales process.
Together with Damen we have successfully created a fully interactive ship configurator. This configurator has a direct link to the Damen Shipyard’s internal systems, creating a seamless transition from Sales to Engineering and beyond. As a result of using the ship configurator Damen Shipyards, it is now possible to showcase a very complex product to their buyers using standard components. The provided system is filled with smart interfaces and intelligence making it possible to create a client specific vessel within no time at all. The system uses a set of rules and logic that the client provides. When using these rules, it is now possible to dynamically set questions based on rules. These rules can be flag dependent or dependent on other questions and selections.
The entire application uses 2d maps and 3d models, as a result we display the configurated vessel as close as possible including the options chosen by the client. We can display 3d models on the desired location and we display 2d maps as part of a floor plan. Rather than showing the same model we dynamically update the model and floorplan. Furthermore, the application generates a dynamically generated pdf that also states the options chosen. Sending this to the email address provided we give the client a document to take home, this document can be shown to others and give the sales person a good insight in the created vessel.
We use innovative software that uses complex rules and models to guarantee a high degree of accuracy. This further enables Damen to efficiently and cost-effectively produce their vessels. All this in a fully automated environment, matching the high standards of Damen Shipyards.
