Shipbuilding catalyst and shipbuilding software provide shipbuilders with best practices, process support and examples of how to facilitate implementation.
There is a major transformation underway in the marine sector. Fleet operators need to develop more energy-efficient, reliable and environmentally friendly ships with better overall performance and lower total operating costs. Shipyards around the world also face numerous challenges and increasing competition.
Today, even the most advanced shipyards have realized that if they want to maintain their leadership role and attain acceptable profitability, they will need to significantly enhance productivity throughout the enterprise.
Siemens PLM Software offers a holistic product lifecycle management (PLM) solution for shipbuilding that enables the following shipbuilding process areas:
- Program and product management
- Ship design and engineering
- Digital ship construction
- Supply chain management
- Ship service and support
The Siemens PLM Software shipbuilding catalyst accelerates time-to-value for implementing PLM for Shipbuilding, while providing an environment for swift adoption of future shipbuilding software and related technologies.
Integrating core operations and the supply chain to maximize efficiency
The shipbuilding catalyst delivers industry best practices models that function as references for PLM across the entire product lifecycle. Deployment accelerators include recommended product selections, network design decisions, configuration procedures, deployment best practices and user training. Open and configurable shipbuilding software allows you to control the appearance and behavior of a Siemens PLM implementation. These include data model extensions, data structures and validation checks.
The shipbuilding catalyst provides preconfigured elements for activities such as defining data objects and roles that can be used in automated workflows. It also supports:
- Departmental schedule management
- Weight information management
- Issue management
- Ship design
- Supply data exchange
- Assembly planning for outfitting
- Electronic work instructions
The shipbuilding catalyst enables shipyards to accelerate the digital transformation of the enterprise, optimizing productivity with preconfigured elements for key processes. This allows operators to improve fleet support and achieve greater availability and reliability while reducing the total ownership cost.
