White Paper – Selecting ERP for the Digital Shipyard

Major shipyards and product lifecycle management vendors are excitedly talking about the emergence of the digital shipyard—a streamlined operation with improved information sharing and substantial efficiencies over traditional shipbuilding environments. That sounds great. But how do you connect all of the elements of shipbuilding and a vessel’s lifecycle?

The primary proponents of the digital shipyard trend are product lifecycle management (PLM) software vendors. But we must remember that managing the lifecycle of a product is a process rather than a single software product.

Proper PLM requires a unified approach to data across an operation, and that by definition requires that the system of record—enterprise resource planning (ERP) software—be the primary vehicle for PLM thinking.

Best-of-Breed PLM software generally prioritizes CAD design, 3D modeling. But the product lifecycle extends through manufacturing, fabrication, procurement, commissioning and other activities. After commissioning and handoff, PLM should deal with support and maintenance all the way through to decommissioning. So how does your team unify such a complex lifecycle and what tools can hep you realize a true digital shipyard.

In this white paper you will learn:
  • Who’s leading the digital shipyard iniative and what are they doing to make this transformation happen.
  • How appropriate digital shipyard processes can make ship design more agile
  • How rapid adoption of the digital shipyard is already causing a sea-change in vessel manufacturing and lifecycle management
