Aker Solutions’ KBeDesign team’s mission is to improve Aker Solutions' competitive advantage. We do this through innovative software solutions as a key element of the on-going digitalization of the company. We develop and deliver KBE software and methods to all parts of the global Aker Solutions organization. Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE) is a technology where design and engineering experience is captured, stored and reused in order to automate time consuming and non-value adding activities in the engineering workflow. A key part of KBE is about automating geometry creation and manipulation for design, analyses and manufacturing of Aker Solutions products and designs. The tools developed by KBeDesign enable Aker Solutions projects to deliver higher quality project deliverables with fewer people in a fraction of the time it takes with conventional tools. Our team is based at Fornebu, Norway. Our team is enthusiastic and the workday is full of inspiring challenges.
