Japanese Shipbuilding Challenges

Managing Outsourcing

It can be difficult to work with contractors and sub-contractors in a way that ensures your organization’s engineering department has control and reliability over every aspect of the project. By including company-specific standards directly in shared projects, and easily being able to verify received work on-the-fly, any work done by contractors can be seamlessly integrated into the existing environment. In this way, disruption to your processes is minimized.

Changing Customer Requirements

Ship owners are increasingly looking for mission-specific vessels that most closely meet their needs. One of the factors that allows for other yards to introduce flexibility in their designs and meet this demand is the use of 3D models as the center of their engineering information. This approach allows them to take advantage of, for example: easily being able to control standards, share projects, estimate CG, and visualize how blocks will fit together. 

An Increasingly Global Industry

Each year, Japanese shipyards are becoming more global, but as more hiring and contractors come from abroad, it is important to maintain consistency and quality that is up to Japanese standards. Through an extensive training curriculum and the ability to easily share work packages -complete with company-specific standards – your organization can ensure that every vessel will be delivered according to your requirements.
