What is Ship Science

Ship science is about more than just textbooks.  At DMS, I use ship science to improve the success of your vessel projects.  At DMS, I constantly focus on ways to improve my process and deliver more efficient engineering, better quality, and more innovation.  Learn why every project with DMS is better than the last.

Automation Achieves More

When Henry Ford mass produced cars, he limited the options.  Increased efficiency required less flexibility.  At DMS, I achieve both efficiency and flexibility.  This leads to shorter project schedules and more consistent quality.  But you can still add in custom changes along the way.

DMS automates the tools in the design process.  I mass produce the mathematics of ship design:  advanced calculation spreadsheets, drafting macros, 3D modeling software that quickly generates 2D production drawings.  My automation reduces the grunt work of ship design.  I produce improvements, not math.

Scientists in Ship Design

Automation still requires a strong foundation in science.  I believe the foundation of ship science grows from our own initiative.  DMS invests in our own independent research and development.  Improvements to the ship design process from one project get reintegrated to benefit all our clients.  That innovation returns to our clients as improved vessel capabilities and new design features.  

Experts in the Design Process

At DMS, I approach ship designs differently.  I see ships as a design process, not as a list of unique features.  I specialize in the process of ship design, benefiting from the commonalities between ships.  Thanks to this structure, every project tests and improves the design process.

A key element in the design process is youYou tell me what makes your ship unique.  What is important to you.  Rather than designing to a template, I focus on your needs as part of the design process.  When I customize vessels with laser focus, they become the best asset in your business arsenal.



Demonstrated Expertise 

Other firms claim expertise; at DMS, I show expertise.  We regularly publish articles and videos about ship design.  I happily offer general advice.  Just call us to learn more.  At DMS, I believe that well informed clients are better armed to make the best decisions.
