The Impact of Operational Excellence on Shipbuilding

Shipbuilding has always been driven by the requirements of whoever has commissioned the vessel. As vessel lifespans continue to increase, and the requirements of vessels are changing, the importance of getting those requirements right from the start becomes increasingly more important.

If there is something that will change our customers’ needs, we need to be aware of it.

Denis Morais, SSI co-CEO

Any changes to requirements will trickle down and impact shipbuilding. Either from the outset, as new types of ships are required, or down the line, as ships are continuously upgraded or repaired. For shipbuilding executives, understanding what those changes will be, and how they can affect a shipbuilding in the future will be key to staying ahead of the curve.

For shipbuilding executives, understanding what ship owners will be requesting going forward and how they can affect shipbuilding in the future will be key to staying ahead of the curve.

The question this eBook aims to answer is: How will the latest technologies impact both shipowners and shipbuilders?
