Due to the strong trade expansion in the marine & offshore industry and the growing need for larger shipping capacity – particularly for liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers – shipyards are subject to booming demand. Shipyards need to execute order books and deliver ships within a limited time period, but how can they improve production capacity while maintaining construction costs and a high level of safety and control?
New digital transformation technologies can establish a virtual shipyard with a competitive edge. Dassault Systèmes recently announced the signature of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Samsung Heavy Industries, a global leader in the high-tech shipbuilding sector, to create a smart yard that aims to increase establish shipyard production capacity and efficiency.
Model-based systems engineering and extensive digital continuity will help the shipyard optimize operations scheduling and execution while streamlining and automating the flow of information required for construction. As a result, it can enhance strategies and accelerate production and assembly operations.
With virtual twin technology, Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE® platform-based smart yard will support the digital transformation of Samsung Heavy Industries’ shipyard and its business ambitions.
