ShipConstructor’s Project Split and Merge (PS&M) is enabling BMT Fleet Technology Limited† to optimize utilization of their international workforce. PS&M is an innovative feature of ShipConstructor software that allows work on a single project to be split and delegated to designers in different geographic locations while maintaining a cohesive 3-D product model and over all control.

At BMT Fleet Technology, the project manager sends a PS&M work-package file to participants at the company’s offices around the world where the designers have everything they need to do their work independently. They can see the entire project but can only modify portions of the model assigned to them by the project manager. Updates are regularly merged back into the master project and distributed to all members so everybody is current at all times.

“Until now, parts of a project could not be developed at multiple sites in a completely secure IT environment and then quickly, seamlessly and accurately reintegrated into the single project as a whole,” said David Stocks, Vice-President, BMT Fleet Technology. “With Project Split and Merge, we are able to share high workloads with other BMT branches as well as pass on our design model to yards for final detailing and production.”

Demand is increasing for ShipConstructor software, already considered mission critical by the industry, as more companies recognize its agility, adaptability and the merits of the Project Split and Merge feature.
