When engineering information smoothly drives all the other departments, tools, and processes, it leaves you truly in control of the information available to you. For your organization, that also means the freedom to make business decisions without putting current or future projects at risk.
Every department in a shipyard requires timely and accurate information from engineering. To be efficient, engineering data needs to feed your entire organization, either directly or through PLM and ERP/MRP applications. However, if departments have difficulty accessing and utilizing that information, or if there are errors or inconsistencies, there can be significant delays, errors, and cost overruns. As the number of discrete processes involved in the design, construction, and maintenance of a vessel increase, the number of ways information must be represented grow in lock-step.
When the digital thread between every process is clear, every piece of information within your organization is delivered in the right format at the right time, and the best shipbuilding specific tools are in place, your organization can continue innovating without jeopardizing the projects at hand. That’s what we call synchronized shipbuilding.
Every process in a shipyard requires data. Seamlessly sharing that data across tools in the correct format needed allows for meaningful, actionable information to be consumed throughout the organization. Providing the freedom to choose the tailored tools required for a shipbuilding project.
Shipbuilding requires careful coordination among many departments, but far too often the information for decisions is siloed in numerous legacy software systems and spreadsheets. Opening up those silos is what allows every department to access the information they need, when they need it.
