Digital Ship Lifecycle Management

Computerized sketch of a ship

To meet today’s regulations and market demands, ships need to be greener, safer, smarter, more cost-effective, more connected, and more adaptable than ever before. As new functionalities are added to what is already a highly complex product, more parties (e.g. suppliers, subcontractors, co-makers) need to be involved in the design, manufacturing, and maintenance processes. With ship service lives reaching up to 40 years for a commercial vessel and 50 years for a naval one, it becomes apparent that robust ship lifecycle management is not optional—it is critical.

Today more than ever before, shipyards must deliver on time, on budget, and on quality to remain competitive. As vessel complexity increases and the shipbuilding environment expands across many geographies, being able to access the right information in the right place at the right time is key to the shipyard’s success. Without a good data flow, inefficiencies in collaboration and compliance across departments may negatively impact profitability, cause penalties for late delivery, lead to delays in other projects on the yard and put new orders at risk.

Our Digital Ship Lifecycle Management solution allows you to manage the complexity of your ship lifecycle – from inquiry to decommissioning – by bringing together all product information and processes into one centralized environment. The product lifecycle management (PLM) system acts as the backbone between disjointed software tools to ensure accurate bill-of-materials (BOM) and configuration management, efficient supply chain management, robust change management, and global scalability and extensibility. Globally distributed teams can work as one by accessing a single source of truth via the comprehensive digital twin model of the vessel maintained in the PLM system. Vessel information can be pulled as needed by stakeholders, including ship owners/operators, class societies, and repair yards.

Business agility is key to respond to the market, regulatory and technological changes. Keep all your vessel information and processes in hand with Siemens Digital Ship Lifecycle Management and use complexity as a competitive advantage to secure your success on the seas of tomorrow.
