Tribon is a naval architecture program originally developed by Kockum Computer Systems (KCS) for designing commercial and naval vessels. KCS was spun off from Kockums shipyards as an independent company, later renamed Tribon Systems, which was in turn acquired by AVEVA in 2004.
Tribon is actually a family of programs that create and refer to a common set of databases containing the design details of the ship. Together, these databases are used to depict a 3D model of the ship, with embedded information for all of the parts of the design, from ship structural elements to pipe segments to equipment. Many common ship design elements, especially equipment, can be downloaded from databases on Tribon.com.
