Brief

Is the design spiral holding you back?

The design and engineering phase is one of the most critical of any shipbuilding project. The phase typically represents 5 to 10 percent of the overall production cost of a vessel, and yet has an impact on about 85 percent of the construction costs. It is also during this phase that ~90 percent of the vessel performance is determined.

In today’s uncertain market, getting your design right the first time is critical to ensure success. Can digital twin technology help make the ship design and engineering process more efficient?

Controlling the design spiral

Today, the ship design and engineering process is largely based on the design spiral. However, this process is inefficient. Steps in the spiral typically involve independent functional teams, which results in collaboration bottlenecks and data silos. In addition, ships today are a lot more complex than they were when the design spiral was first introduced.

To manage today’s complexity and stay afloat in an increasingly competitive market, adopting an integrated approach to ship design and engineering is not an option, it is a necessity.
