• Design
        • The most significant opportunities to impact the cost of building and operating a ship are found in the design and engineering phase.

          Initial Design  |  Basic Design  |  Detailed Design

        • Build
        • Even a smaller shipbuilding project is immense in scope and scale. Manage the challenges that are unique to ship construction.

          Prepare  |  Fabricate  |  Assemble

        • Maintain
        • With the majority of a ship’s life taking place after it’s been built, it’s crucial to ensure that the organization has a clear picture of the vessel at all times.

        • ShipConstructor
        • Engineering information is a shipbuilder’s most important asset. Getting that information to fit your business means using a solution that is built to handle shipbuilding’s unique challenges and information requirements throughout each stage of a vessel’s lifecycle.

        • EnterprisePlatform
        • 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.

        • ShipbuildingPLM
        • ShipbuildingPLM is the only product lifecycle management (PLM) platform that is specifically built for the business of shipbuilding. It allows your shipyard to manage and organize information, understand change, build a foundation for digital innovation, and support MRO activities – without the risks and costs of traditional PLM implementations.

Innovation Story

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. The complexity of shipbuilding and the concurrent way in which ships are built makes this a challenging goal to achieve, but every step we make towards […]

Genoa Design International

In 2012, as Genoa was set to play a crucial role in Canada’s National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS), they identified the need to expand and onboard in large numbers rapidly. With not many designers previously familiar with shipbuilding and a large number of projects ahead, it was going to be a challenge to ramp up quickly and ensure everyone was on equal footing.

Miho Shipyard

Miho understood that it was critical to look for a next-generation system, and after evaluating numerous solutions, introduced ShipConstructor as their primary hull production design solution in 2010. The tangible benefits of 3D were clear; however, a key consideration was that the implemented solution needed to be introduced quickly and without disrupting ongoing projects or established processes.
