GHS is the first computer software created to simulate vessels for Naval Architects (NAs), Project and Marine Engineers (PEs & MEs ) to address all vessel types in:
designing, building, launching, operating and maintaining, modifying / retrofitting, as well as salvaging:
ships, barges, boats, buoys, docks, dredgers, drilling platforms, semi-submersibles, shipyards, submarines, yachts, and other vessels with cargo(s) of:
bulk, cable, container, communication & drilling equipment, gas, grain, off-shore, passenger, pipe-laying, research, tanks, vehicles, etc. providing:
buoyancy, stability, and trim; load monitoring, intact and damage stability analysis, as well as probabilistic damage analysis.

Moreover, GHS software does the standards by all the issuing agencies, many of which Creative Systems participated in making these standards; and goes well beyond these standards, which is why salvors use GHS.

Creative Systems, Inc. has been there forming changes to NA software since we created it.

A new product in GHS, titled RENDER.WIZ will come out in the 2017 release of GHS version 15.50. See booth 2258 for details. Again, it goes beyond the normal 3-D rendered view of vessels.
And of course any and all updates will happen in GHS Version 15.50.
Else, contact for further explanation.

GHS - General HydroStatics

GHS General HydroStatics GHS is the first computer software simulating vessels for Naval Architects, Project / Marine Engineers addressing vessels in: designing, building, launching, operating, maintaining, modifying / retrofitting, and salvaging: ships, barges, boats, buoys, docks / locks, dredgers, drilling platforms, submersibles, yachts, with cargo: bulk, cable, container, communication / drilling, gas, grain, offshore, passenger, pipelaying, research, tanks, vehicles, providing: buoyancy, stability, and trim; load monitoring, intact and damage stability analysis, as well as probabilistic damage. GHS does the standards of issuing agencies and goes well beyond them; why salvors use GHS. Naval Architects have more ability to configure designs / reports with flexibility, outside the standard input. RENDER.WIZ will come out in 2017 release of version 15.50 going beyond normal 3-D rendered view. See booth 2258 for details.

GLM - GHS Load Monitor

GHS Load Monitor (GLM)GLM - GHS Load Monitor is shipboard version for operators to load vessels evaluating stability & strength in current or anticipated conditions. User friendly features for mates/engineers. GHS user can build specific configuration with CG, LE, & LEw. Other Optional Modules sold separately.Making GLMs and Selling them to your Clients If you are a current GHS user and if you have a Geometry File and light ship weight information, you can easily make a GLM and sell it to your client for use aboard the vessel and/or in his office. The process is as follows. 1. Contact Creative Systems and order the GLM Configurer's license which authorizes you to use GLM_Maker, the GLM Configuration Wizard, and to be a distributor of GLMs. You will receive an upgrade to your GHS.KEY file that enables your system to test build and GLMs. It also gives you the ability to use the new LEw version of Load Editor in your regular GHS work. Your only cost is adding the LE, LEw and CG modules to your GHS system (if you do not already have them); and this can be done with a Lease-to-Own as well.2. Download the GLM Configurer's package 3. Unzip the package and copy all of the files into your GHS program directory. 4. Run GHS and pull down the Wizard menu. In the All category find GLM_Maker and run it. Instructions are self-contained in the wizard. If you have any questions or encounter difficulties, email or call Creative Systems for help. Any optional features such as LS and MB (any features that employ multiple geometry files require MB) must be included in your GHS license before they can be incorporated into the GLM. 5. When the GLM is complete, zip the files in the working directory (not the test directory) and email them to Creative Systems to get a price quotation for the software. 6. Add your labor costs and profit to the software quotation. If this is a preliminary version for the purpose of demonstrating it to your client, add the additional hours you estimate that you will spend in finishing it. 7. Arrange for a demonstration with your client. 8. When he gives you the go-ahead, use the GLM_Maker wizard to add the required features or details. If the client wants something that does not seem to be supported by the wizard, contact Creative Systems and ask about the feasibility of adding it.9. When the final version is ready, again email the files from the working directory to Creative Systems and ask them to put together the final package which they will then place in a special location on their web site and notify you so that you can download it. They will also prepare printed copies of the manual (let them know how many you need) and one or more CDs containing all the files ready to be installed on your client's computer. They will ship these materials, along with the software invoice, to you. 10. Before starting the next GLM project, download the latest GLM Configurer's package (there is no charge for this update if your GHS system is current).SEE: then Software Products then GHS Load Monitor (GLM)  and GLM Configurer for a Demo, go to:
