When your shipyard is looking to use 3D technologies as a part of your shipbuilding processes, it is important to consider several key factors that will ensure long-term stability and success. The comparison chart below offers an easy way to help your organization understand and compare the attributes of the leading shipbuilding engineering solution providers. This tool is valuable for any Japanese shipyard investigating a transition towards 3D shipbuilding software, but it is especially useful for the organizations currently using MATES.

Key Aspects to Consider 

Step-by-step implementation 

No transition can jeopardize the status of current and future projects. By choosing which pieces of your existing processes to move towards SSI first, without the need to rip and replace, you can ensure that nothing is disrupted. 

Open Integration 

Your current systems, machinery, and technology all need to interact seamlessly with any new platform. When data can flow into and out of any source your organization already has in place, there is no need to risk stalled projects. 

Quick time to proficiency 

Specialists will always be required at any sophisticated shipyard. However, they should not be necessary to perform even the most basic tasks. By transitioning to a solution that allows your teams to quickly get up to speed, they can continue project work with minimal gaps in productivity. 

Quick ROI 

When the solution is shipbuilding specific, teams are able to respond to market changes as needed, innovate without jeopardizing the projects at hand, and align investment with what needs to get done it is possible to achieve a quick return on investment. 

Support for outsourcing 

Working with external sub-contractors requires the ability to easily transfer and receive project information in the necessary formats.
