        • ShipConstructor
        • Engineering information is a shipbuilder’s most important asset. Getting that information to fit your business means using a solution that is built to handle shipbuilding’s unique challenges and information requirements throughout each stage of a vessel’s lifecycle.

        • EnterprisePlatform
        • Every process in a shipyard requires data. Seamlessly sharing that data across tools in the correct format needed allows for meaningful, actionable information to be consumed throughout the organization. Providing the freedom to choose the tailored tools required for a shipbuilding project.

        • ShipbuildingPLM
        • ShipbuildingPLM is the only product lifecycle management (PLM) platform that is specifically built for the business of shipbuilding. It allows your shipyard to manage and organize information, understand change, build a foundation for digital innovation, and support MRO activities – without the risks and costs of traditional PLM implementations.

Shipbuilding projects are more complex and involve more distributed teams than ever. Peer Software’s platform helps make it possible for SSI clients to replicate and control information across platforms and locations faster and easier than ever.  

Choosing the Right Distributed Information Management Solution 

The connected world of shipbuilding means distributed teams allow shipyards to complete more complex projects in less time. Sharing and collaborating on the same product data over this distributed environment needs to happen seamlessly, securely, and not disrupt existing workflows. 

Peer Software’s file services platform helps expand SSI’s Workshare Teams multi-site solution. Together, this strategy reduces the impact of speed and latency issues and allows users to perform a wide range of selected tasks with substantially improved performance.  

Read-only operations such as generating reports, creating BOMs, compiling production drawings, importing external references or x-refs, loading revisions, exporting to third-party systems, data-mining, and similar operations can be performed faster and more confidently, offloading memory, CPU, and input/output resources. 

“We have customers with valuable engineering and production resources that go from waiting minutes throughout the day for files to download and upload, to a matter of seconds after implementing Peer.”

Kevin Hoisington, Director of Channel and Alliance Marketing, Peer Software

Peer Software and SSI Joint Shipyard Success 

A major North American shipyard is using SSI’s distributed teams workflow and leveraging PeerGFS, Peer Software’s Global File Service. The shipyard is taking advantage of drawing file replication capabilities and locking features to prevent simultaneous work on replicated drawings. The solution is set up within a hybrid on-premise/Azure Cloud infrastructure. The combination of file replication and virtualization means the shipyard can easily adjust its infrastructure to match changing project demands, needs, and business goals.
