Shipyard 4.0: Bringing the digital twin to the shop floor

Stricter environmental/safety regulations and increasingly customized functional requirements have been driving the demand for more complex vessels. This wave of complexity is hitting the shop floor just as increased competition and rising economic uncertainty are forcing shipyards to reduce their production costs and time-to-market. Shipyards must deliver on spec, on time, and on budget. But when margins are already so low, how can shipbuilders keep reducing production costs without compromising quality?

Becoming a digital shipyard

Shipbuilding is a complex process. To cut costs and increase productivity without compromising quality, this process needs to be fine-tuned and, as much as possible, automated. This can be done by adopting a digital thread approach to ship construction. By leveraging digital twin technology, digital shipyards can minimize risks and inefficiencies in their current manufacturing process and turn complexity into a competitive advantage.
