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 staff who have similar responsibilities.

For better fleet availability and reliability and lower total ownership cost, it is crucial to have 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.

Solution Capabilities

Explore the key areas of this solution.

PLM Platform

PLM Platform

Manage and coordinate multi-site shipbuilding deployments across your global enterprise with industry leading PLM platform scalability. Establish and navigate part/component class hierarchies, and view attributes.

Requirements Management

Requirements Management

Define and understand the relationships and dependencies between ship multi-domain design objects and product requirements needed to continuously verify design compliance to those requirements across all possible configurations of the product.

Document & Content Management

Document & Content Management

Author and manage ship-related documents and specifications. Use Microsoft Office applications to create text, 2D/3D illustrations and animations from imported CAD model, JT, or BoM data to generate specifications and documents.

Design & Simulation Management

Design & Simulation Management

Integrate and manage processes and data across engineering disciplines/domains including: structural, outfitting, mechanical, electronic, software, simulation and test.

BOM & Configuration Management

BOM & Configuration Management

Generate and manage a single secure multi-disciplinary bill-of-materials ("whole product BoM" including requirements, hull and structures, outfitting, mechanical, electronic, software, test, etc.) from ship concept through obsolescence, encompassing all ship configurations.

Supplier Integration

Supplier Integration

Create and exchange packages of ship information with suppliers and class societies. Share CAD designs, specifications, JT files, etc. using a secure portal. Establish a design context so suppliers only see the data they need.

Growing demands for efficiency, a clean environment and on-time delivery are increasing the size and complexity of ships. To reduce product lead time and production time, and to enable the highest states of readiness, ship availability, and ultimately the lowest total cost of ownership, shipyards, navies and commercial fleet owners are investing in multi-domain integration strategies.

The key to achieving proper harmony and fidelity among shipyards, suppliers and service teams is Engineering Data Management:  A multi-disciplinary approach to Engineering Data Management that leverages integrated requirements management, secure supplier collaboration and an engineering management platform that combines structural, outfitting, mechanical, electronic, software, simulation and test data into a single collaborative environment. This enables the intelligent management, sharing and synchronization of data across ship configurations, design disciplines and organizational functions while providing industry-leading performance and platform scalability.
