Production Planning & Engineering for Shipbuilding

Ship construction is a complex and lengthy process that demands careful planning and timely decision-making. Plan, optimize and validate ship construction processes before building. Use a broad range of tools to streamline your process planning workflows, automate non-value-added planning tasks and validate the best shipbuilding plan. These tools facilitate process design and sequencing, production BOM and BOP management, time management, 3D shipyard layout and ergonomic analysis. Control ship and production lifecycles from process planning and detailed engineering to full production by connecting the entire value chain to realize the best production strategy.

Production Planning & Engineering for Shipbuilding

Demands on shipbuilders continue to increase ship and process complexity with increased regulations, the need for global construction and sourcing to meet local demands and competitive pressures that result in reduced margins. Today’s shipbuilders need to ensure rapid delivery of highly reliable, high quality and safe ships. To accomplish this, they must move construction process planning and simulation upstream. If not, increasing complexity results in most issues and changes being caught in the final steps of ship development and delivery, when they are the most costly to fix. Shipbuilders must improve collaboration between engineering and production to control all aspects of the ship development process so that shipyards can build their ships right the first time – reducing rework during sea trials and final acceptance testing.

Shipbuilders must employ advanced, process-driven techniques to build ships that meet or exceed customer expectations and ensure that constraints are considered during the early stages of ship development. Our solutions allow shipbuilders to digitalize the shipbuilding process and shipyards to maximize productivity, increase profitability and realize the best ships.
