Product Lifecycle Management for the Marine Industry

Fleet owners and operators are modernizing their fleets. Is your shipyard in a position to maximize its share of that market? Not if it is designing and building ships the same way it was five years ago. Read our perspective, called "Future Fleet", on how you can increase shipbuilding innovation by using shipbuilding software to design, engineer and build better and more affordable ships and maximize your share of future fleets.

Engineering Data Management for Shipbuilding

This solution is crucial to designing, building and sustaining future fleets on-time, on-budget and on-performance. Additionally, it is essential for shipyards that plan to provide through-life service and support, and for fleet operating staffs who have similar responsibilities. Siemens PLM Software offers a multi-disciplinary approach to engineering data management that leverages integrated requirements management, secure supplier collaboration and an engineering management platform for all disciplines and stages of shipbuilding and ship lifecycle, up to decommissioning, which are crucial to better fleet availability and reliability and lower total ownership cost.

Composites for Shipbuilding

Composite Engineering and Manufacturing enables marine engineers to develop the most complex marine structures for the most challenging applications and ensures reasonable manufacturing efficiency and production yields.  With this solution, shipyards can be confident that their marine composites structures meet requirements for strength, weight and durability.  Additionally, the solution provides shipyards and marine service centers the capabilities to manufacture replacement composite structures.

Ship Program & Product Management

Consistent program planning and execution excellence is essential to program profitability and winning new business. Leading shipbuilders around the world seek to accelerate ship delivery, boost team productivity and facilitate the use of proven best practices to mitigate potential risks. Siemens PLM Software provides a systems approach to program planning and execution by integrating cost, schedule and technical requirements. It is scalable to any program size and supports both commercial and government programs. In addition, with configuration management, shipyards can seamlessly track the configuration of a class of ships or an individual hull number across the ship’s entire lifecycle.

Integrated Ship Design & Engineering

Modern shipbuilding encompasses some of the most daunting engineering challenges in the world. Shipbuilders must take advantage of the latest engineering technology to accelerate the development of ships and offshore platforms, drive shipbuilding innovation and facilitate global collaboration. The Siemens PLM Software ship design and engineering solution enables design engineers to create and maintain 3D models in context of major ship modules, compartments, systems and locations. Composite structures and components, from mega-yachts and propellers to sonar domes, can be engineered and produced. Sophisticated marine systems can be proactively optimized with a combination of 1D and 3D simulation, mobile- and lab-testing systems and engineering services.

Supply Chain Management

Shipyards rely on a global supply chain of partners and suppliers to help design, develop, manufacture and test new ship concepts. A well-integrated and managed supply chain is also crucial to the efficient service and support of operating fleets. The Siemens PLM Software supply chain management solution enables a sustained, disciplined and systematic process for reducing the total costs of purchased materials, goods and services. It also enables shipbuilders to synchronize program activities and exchange data reliably and flexibly with suppliers and partners using different authoring tools.

Digital Ship Construction

Construction planning and execution for ships and offshore platforms are very complex projects. Leading shipyards are able to optimize process flows before production begins, implement lean practices at the start of new programs, and avoid the cost of building expensive physical models. The Siemens PLM Software solution enables you to digitally plan and execute the entire ship construction process. Production engineers can digitally simulate and optimize assembly processes and facility layouts; define and produce tooling, fixtures and parts; and plan, optimize and implement automation and execution systems.

Ship Service & Support

Ship maintenance costs are 60 to 70 percent of the total lifecycle cost. Leading shipyards are focused on managing sustainability requirements and achieving continuous improvement in fleet availability, reliability and overhaul cycle reduction. The Siemens PLM Software ship service and support solution enables service engineers to define and optimize ship service procedures, and author service documentation within a ship lifecycle context. Fleet owners and repair yards can utilize the solution to better manage all maintenance and regulatory reporting requirements, service planning, execution, service metrics monitoring and reporting in a single environment.
