Production Build Strategy

Efficiently develop manufacturing assembly definition to support work preparation and production 

The production of any large ship or offshore platform is a major undertaking involving a large ecosystem. One of the first major steps in any such project is to define the build strategy including the block definitions and the manufacturing assemblies within each block. This is fundamental information that forms the foundation of the production planning process. It is therefore critical that this assembly process leverages existing company knowledge and experience to define assemblies that are optimized for production within the specific shipyard.


Optimized Production For Sea transposes an engineering BOM, organized by system, into a manufacturing BOM, which is organized by block. It details what needs to be built and the sequence of operations required to build each block. As design and manufacturing information are fully integrated in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, engineering design changes are automatically propagated to the manufacturing information, promoting data integrity from design to manufacture.  

Key Highlights and Benefits


  • Reuse standard manufacturing assembly templates
  • Manage, view, and navigate large manufacturing assemblies
  • Generate cross-discipline manufacturing assemblies directly from engineering design data
  • Effectively manage engineering changes with automatic propagation to reduce downstream errors and rework
  • Quickly and easily identify which design objects are not included in the manufacturing planning
  • Generate assembly drawings
