The marine industry of today wants greener, more intelligent, and hi-tech vessels. Shipbuilders must deliver these vessels on time, under budget, and with high quality to be competitive. Marine firms can maintain control of the design spiral thanks to our Integrated Ship Design and Engineering solution. They may eliminate information and collaboration silos, foster creativity, and increase business productivity by centralizing all their multidisciplinary design data, processes, and tools.
The requirement to identify and reduce the risks associated with more complicated design and manufacturing processes grows along with the demand for high-value-added vessels. The current unpredictable environment and heightened competitiveness in the shipbuilding sector have made this requirement even more pressing. A shipyard needs to submit proposals that are both appealing and accurate to stay competitive. It is now essential to have an end-to-end project management solution that is completely planned, resourced, and budget.
Ships must be greener, safer, smarter, more cost-effective, networked, and more adaptable than ever before to fulfil today’s rules and market expectations. More parties (e.g., suppliers, subcontractors, co-makers) need to be involved in the design, manufacture, and maintenance processes as additional functionalities are added to what is already a very complex product. Given that a commercial ship’s service life can be up to 40 years and a naval ship’s service life can be up to 50 years, effective ship lifecycle management is essential and not an option.
The demand for more complicated vessels has been driven by stricter environmental and safety laws as well as by functional requirements that are becoming more and more personalized. Increasing competition and growing economic unpredictability are pressuring shipyards to cut their manufacturing costs and time-to-market as this wave of complexity hits the shop floor. If shipyards want to stay competitive, they must produce on specification, on time, and within budget. But how can shipbuilders continue to cut manufacturing costs without sacrificing quality when margins are slim?
Shipowners and operators are attempting to increase profit margins by reducing operational expenses and increasing vessel availability as the economic slump continues to have an impact on the already oversaturated shipping market. The development of information and communication technology (ICT) is also expanding the possibilities for both shipbuilders and shipping businesses by enabling the collection, exchange, and analysis of data at a previously unheard-of scale. So how can the marine sector take advantage of this vast new pool of data to cut costs and increase vessel availability?
