The increasing disconnect between design and resource management
CAD/CAM and ERP are the two pillars of any shipbuilding enterprise, determining and documenting what needs to be built, and ensuring the materials and human resources are available at the right time to build it. However, they are often implemented as stand-alone vertical applications, primarily designed to serve their respective departments of engineering and project management.
Shipyard IT departments struggle to integrate common information and ensure the consistent transfer of material and planning information between these two applications.
Poorly integrated information results in the need to re-enter data and ultimately leads to designers, production workers and project managers having to interpret large volumes of information from their respective colleagues; this, in the worst cases, leads to rework and its associated costs.
Lack of visibility of project status, increasing risk and control of ROI, and ultimately leading to uninformed decision making and reduced responsiveness to changes.
Thanks to the integration of the most critical shipbuilding IT tools, all data is entered only once, and continuously developed throughout the ship design and production process.
Integrated Shipbuilding is the only integrated platform for planning, engineering, design, procurement, fabrication and production. AVEVA Marine and AVEVA Enterprise Resource Management are the industry’s leading and most proven tools for shipbuilding.
OPTIMISED WORKFLOWS AND AUTOMATION
A common information model and Bill of Materials concept allows for cross-departmental transparency and provides the enterprise with the basis for developing optimised workflows and automation.
CONTROL OF CHANGE
All AVEVA’s products and tools are object-centric and can therefore handle with ease very large volumes of data. Integration at the object level allows Integrated Shipbuilding to provide ultimate control of change, minimising unplanned changes and delivering just-in-time production documentation.
