Naval Shipbuilding Trends and Imperatives
The growing complexity and resulting costs of advanced naval ships puts enormous pressure on designers, engineers and production teams to improve productivity. Additionally, the protracted time to develop new naval ships further compounds the challenge to deliver the most affordable, best-value ship that is aligned with an ever-changing set of operational requirements.
The cost of maintaining naval ships can be several times the initial cost, so now new naval programs have key performance parameters (KPPs) on total ownership cost that are just as important as the core operational performance for speed, endurance, payload, etc.
Siemens Solutions Breadth and Depth
Siemens PLM Software is uniquely qualified to answer these challenges with a comprehensive portfolio of naval design software that spans all operations and phases of a ship’s lifecycle. From concept development through detailed ship design, to initial production and sea trials, and then throughout the operational life, our software creates and synchronizes the complete and current technical definition of a naval ship. In the development phase, our solutions include:
In the construction and sea trials phase, our software provides:
By capturing and retaining this knowledge, you are able to re-use the best elements of a naval ship design in future classes, thereby further reducing the development costs and assuring the highest state of service reliability.
Impact of PLM Software on Naval Ship Design
Siemens PLM Software is transforming and revolutionizing the way naval ships are designed, developed, built, and supported. Based on the breadth and depth of our solutions, proven scalability, open/modular architecture, and extensive experience, the leading shipyards in the world have implemented our software to produce aircraft carriers, cruisers, destroyers, frigates, corvettes and submarines. Siemens PLM Software solutions are currently being used in a similar manner to design and develop advanced specialty commercial ships, mega yachts and offshore drilling ships.
