There are a lot of digital buzzwords floating around the shipbuilding industry – digital transformation being the main one. We wanted to speak with experts from the industry, clients, and partners on how they are making transformation real, quick to implement, and actually valuable for those in our industry. 

See below for exclusive takes from some of the industry’s brightest, right from the show floor at the 2022 International WorkBoat Show in New Orleans, LA. 

Alan Mendel, VP Business Development, Aras

Shipbuilding is a unique industry, that’s why SSI ShipbuildingPLM tailors Aras Innovator specifically for the needs of our industry. We spoke with Alan about how the partnership between Aras and SSI is supporting shipyards, how shipbuilders can action innovation, and the steps they can take to truly get control of their information.

Steve Boisvert, Knowledge Aware Consultant, Auros

Shipbuilding projects have more information associated with them than any other manufactured object. Managing that information in accordance with rules and other knowledge is crucial to successful shipbuilding. Steve shares how to make that a reality through knowledge capture in an integrated model-based environment. 

Brian Ahern, CEO, DotProduct

Verifying the true as-built state of a vessel when it’s on the water and before it is at the shipyard for a refit maximizes the uptime of a vessel. DotProduct’s handheld and mobile device-based scanners make it easy to perform reality capture and perform design work based off that information. Brian talks about the power of integrating information, the role of reality capture in a digital transformation, and the future of DotProduct and SSI’s partnership.

Domenic Steinbrueck, VP North American Sales, Peer Software

Shipyards can no longer avoid the benefits of having distributed teams. Managing how information is shared across those teams and locations is crucial. Domenic speaks about the power of seamless file replication and information sharing as part of a shipyard’s transformation strategy as well as the joint success SSI and Peer are seeing at a major North American shipyard.

Jason Budgell, CIO, Genoa Design International

Genoa is leading the charge at applying digital transformation at a design office. Jason talks about the lessons they have learned, how they are applying them for future success at their business, and the long connection that Genoa has had as an SSI client.

Rick Spaulding, President-Elect, SNAME

SNAME (Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers) is a driving force behind the latest and greatest in global shipbuilding innovation. Rick, the incoming president of the organization, touches upon the exciting things in store for not just SNAME, but also for the industry as a whole. He also shares the secrets to how to get started with the organization.

Joshua Bibb, Director of Strategy, Cupix

In a perfect world, our vessels would be built exactly as they were designed, and the digital twin would always reflect the ship as it sits on the water. SSI and Cupix are working together to make that vision a reality, and Joshua walks us through the partnership, how it fits into a shipyard’s digital transformation, and how the shipyard was able to see value right away.

William Champagne, Territory Sales Representative, InnovMarine

InnovMarine has helped many shipbuilders apply truly digital practices and tools to their processes. William spoke with us about the role of tools in transformation and the biggest questions shipyards are trying to answer.
