Providing between 50 to 80% of a product value, suppliers are essential for the successful completion of any marine or offshore project. Shipyards must be able to coordinate and manage an extensive network of globally distributed suppliers in a streamlined and productive way. They need solutions to help them manage the cost, quality, and delivery schedule. Shipyards need to tightly manage the sourcing process, and to coordinate and monitor the activities of suppliers.
