JSC “Zelenodolsk Design Bureau” Accelerates Approval with ESI IC.IDO

Virtual Reality


We have considered various alternative systems and approaches to optimize the compartment acceptance process, including VR systems with game engines which provided very high level graphics and visualization quality. However, they appeared to be unsuitable for the engineering and construction tasks to be performed. We have chosen ESI IC.IDO, which
allows us to make effective decisions not only in the construction domain, but also with ergonomic studies.

When Zelenodolsk Design Bureau designed compartments for marine vessels, approval was a lengthy process. How long depended on the complexity of compartments and the number of departments contributing to design. Full size models of packed compartments were constructed in dedicated mock-up sections, which required a considerable investment in time and money.


JSC “Zelenodolsk Design Bureau” (ZDB), founded in 1949, is part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation in Russia. Today, they specialize in developing projects for ships, boats and other marine vessels, for the Russian and overseas markets and they provide services in the areas of design, construction support, development of modernization projects, design assistance & consultation, and experiments & trials.


ESI IC.IDO supported Zelenodolsk Design Bureau in improving the quality of their end product and project documentation. Time spent on corrections made in the final stage of the design process has been reduced, profitability has improved, and end customer value is enhanced.
