Modernizing Ship Production Planning

 

Ways to boost shipyard efficiency

The far-reaching impact of ship design and construction software on the marine industry cannot be overstated, especially in an era of increasing regulation, bigger, more complex ships, and razor-thin margins, challenging those who design, production plan and produce ships like never before. From initial design through fully built ships, technology has changed the face, and build, of marine vessels for the past 30 years and is a key driver in shipbuilding optimization.

 

Today, more than ever, the ability for shipyards to optimize operations, from design to production planning to manufacturing, will determine not only a shipyard’s profitability, but its survival. Shipyards intent on a long healthy future need to invest now in production planning, the very foundation for efficient construction, as well as new products and automation systems that will provide efficiency gains for the coming generation. The best way for shipbuilders to improve their production processes is to more closely integrate production planning and fabrication practices with the design process.
