Integrated Ship Design and Engineering

Today’s marine market demands greener, smarter, and more high-tech vessels. To remain competitive, shipbuilders must deliver those vessels on time, on budget, and on quality. Our Integrated Ship Design and Engineering solution enables marine companies to remain in control of the design spiral. By bringing all their multidisciplinary design data, processes, and tools in one centralized environment, they can break down information and collaboration silos, boost innovation, and improve enterprise productivity.

Integrated Project Planning & Execution

As the demand for high value-added vessels increases, so does the need to identify and mitigate the risks associated with more complex design and manufacturing processes. This need is compounded by the current climate of unpredictability and increased competition in the shipbuilding market. To remain competitive, a shipyard must deliver bids that are both attractive and accurate. To this end, having a fully planned, resourced, and budgeted end-to-end project management solution has become critical.

Digital Ship Lifecycle Management

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 complexity increases, more parties need to be involved in the vessel 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.

Wirtualizacja budowy statków

Surowsze przepisy i coraz bardziej zindywidualizowane wymagania funkcjonalne zwiększają popyt na bardziej skomplikowane statki. Ta fala złożoności uderza w hale produkcyjne w momencie, gdy rosnąca konkurencja i coraz większa niepewność ekonomiczna zmuszają stocznie do zmniejszania kosztów produkcji i skracania czasu wprowadzania produktów na rynek. Aby zachować konkurencyjność, stocznie muszą realizować dostawy zgodnie ze specyfikacjami, na czas i w ramach wyznaczonego budżetu. Jak przy już tak niskich marżach stocznie mogą dalej obniżać koszty produkcji bez uszczerbku dla jakości?

Ship Service & Maintenance

As the economic slowdown continues to impact the already overcrowded shipping market, ship owners and operators are looking to maximize profit margins by lowering operational costs and improving vessel availability. At the same time, the rise of information and communication technology is opening new horizons for shipping companies and shipbuilders alike. So how can the marine industry capitalize on the sea of newly available data to improve the current ship service and maintenance model?

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.
