Moving information throughout a shipyard is unavoidable in a modern shipbuilding organization. But with a huge number of platforms, information sources, parts, and relationships created throughout the lifecycle, even when a connection can be made, it’s difficult to obtain any real insight.
What are the keys to effectively integrating disparate shipbuilding platforms and managing shipbuilding information? How can we allow the entire organization to more insight from our existing sources?
Join SSI at ACE 2021 from April 19, 2021 to April 21, 2021 to see how first-hand how to solve information challenges in shipbuilding. Stay tuned for more information.
Taking Control Over Data Complexity in Shipbuilding
Wednesday, April 21, 2021, 11:15 AM – 11:45 AM
The shipbuilding industry faces key challenges (and competitive opportunities) that arise from managing the exceptional scale and complexity of shipbuilding product data. What are the best ways to tackle:
- The frequent change that comes from planning, procurement, and manufacturing activities that are typically in full swing while engineering and design are still in development.
- The increased adoption of robotization on the shop floor and the accurate configuration control of CAM and related product data derived from 3D models these automated processes require.
- The need to maintain a digital thread throughout the shipbuilding design lifecycle to improve design validation, commissioning, and handover efficiency, with increasing client-driven demand for product data enriched digital twins.
The above challenges have made the adoption of PLM a key requirement for future competitiveness in the shipbuilding industry. This presentation will address typical shipbuilding product management use cases and provide an overview of how SSI’s vertical ShipbuildingPLM solution, developed with the Aras Innovator platform, provides a unique opportunity for shipyards to accelerate PLM adoption through an initial foundation of core capabilities that can be expanded to address current and future industry challenges.
