Dimetris works with PDF drawings, which you simply upload to the software. Be sure to set a scale dimension (usually found on the ship’s drawings) and calculate everything you want to know without any hassle, just by doing the plot/measure function. The software will easily help you to organise the calculation data according to the individual installation of cabins; by types of partition, floor or ceiling finishes. You can easily organise the information about the quantities of materials on the entire ship’s floor, and once the systematisation work is done, it will be even easier to calculate the cost of the installation work.
If a company uses its own specific pricing, it can be easily transferred to the Dimetris database and used for costing. In other words, once you’ve made a measurement on the drawings, the result is a quantity and an estimate.
Another problem that the Dimetris program will help to solve is the issue of staff training. We know that it is quite difficult to find professional estimators on the market who have the experience and skills to calculate shipbuilding estimates. Using our program – training will not be necessary, because everything with the program is very simple, and the rates database you have created will be used for new employees.
