Shipbuilding is transforming at a pace few imagined even 10 years ago. Even more accurately, for many shipbuilders, how they approach their business is changing as a whole. One area many are looking towards is MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Operations/Overhaul). Understanding how MRO fits into a shipbuilding organization, what the pros and cons of implementing an MRO strategy, and who will be driving the change are key things to pin down before getting started.

This strategy might also be the catalyst that will finally get us the “As Built” model as well as a solid foundation for the Digital Twin.

Denis Morais, SSI co-CEO

This eBook, authored by SSI co-CEO Denis Morais, goes over and outlines those key points and offers a look towards what may become the future of our industry. If you have in the past looked at what other shipbuilders are doing and started to re-assess what your organization can do to stay ahead as a result, this eBook is for you.
