The Future of Shipbuilding Design Processes

During basic and detail design there are so many people involved in different roles, each of whom is responsible for a specific aspect of the ship. Going forward, each of these roles will need to work with more information and data.

Many companies are falling into the trap of using their digital strategy to only improve the way they are working today. A digital environment will significantly reduce the many non-value activities you have throughout your business.
