With 21 shipyards around the world, Korea’s STX Shipbuilding has played a key role in the development of the shipbuilding industry since its inception in 1962. Today, STX Shipbuilding builds container ships, bulk carriers, LPG carriers, and most recently, cruise ships, with the purchase of Norway’s Aker Yards, the world’s largest cruise ship builder. The Aker Yards add to STX Shipbuilding’s existing production bases in Korea and China.
STX Shipbuilding wanted to realize the full value of a Design Anywhere, Manufacture Anywhere strategy by improving design-to-manufacturing productivity and enabling real-time product data visibility.
STX Shipbuilding chose ENOVIA and its global collaboration capabilities to provide the framework for a worldwide process innovation project.
The company has improved engineering productivity by 50% enhancing design innovation and manufacturing transparency across its shipyards.
