Production planning and control

CADMATIC Floorganise applies the capabilities of engineering data and the 3D model for planning & production control.


Key benefits

  • Executing an optimized building strategy
  • Increase predictability of task progress and completion
  • Integrate planning: planning from project to production and from operation and control
  • Use a single platform for operational control, providing all insights, priorities, performance tracking and tasks readiness
  • Reduce production workshop hours by more than 15% 
Production planning and control

Production control and planning using machine learning

CADMATIC Floorganise enhances ship (project) planning and control processes as a Ship Production Execution System (MES) through automation and integration of engineering data, the 3D model and available IT systems (e.g. ERP, time & attendance, project planning software).

Planning, production and engineering departments and even the supply chain can work on the same model and create deeper more predictable and detailed plans on the actual 3D model in parallel. This allows for a process that follows the optimized building strategy based on the particulars of both the project as well as the yard. Processes rely on up-to-date integrated and factual data, thereby vastly reducing failure costs.

Create task-level planning based on the work breakdown and BOM from the actual engineering model refined with KPI’s, resources and business logic derived from your own yard. Create kits and work packages, visualize progress status and project risks in 3D but also retrieve daily updates on technical progress and hours worked per individual worker through dedicated modules. All synchronized with your current IT landscape where applicable.

Planning & production

  • Create detailed planning based on defined assemblies, work packages or product hierarchies from the 3D model
  • Assemble work packages in 3D
  • Create task lists for production
  • Plan defined packages
  • Plan based on actuals instead of averages
  • Plan at worker level
  • Use detailed progress reporting


Shop floor control

  • Instantly recognize tasks, priorities, budgets, hours to go, resource utilization and deviations for your team
  • Submit issues, changes, hours and progress (including the supply chain)
  • Assign workers in your team to tasks and maintain overview
  • Instantly access the latest 2D/3D production information, drawings and 3D-model


Information management

  • Link external data to the model and visualize, track and control information
  • Visualize data, internal and external
  • Create custom hierarchies based on external data
  • Track statuses
  • Link drawings bi-directional; model drawing
  • Link and backlink dynamically to and from external systems
  • Create a single entry for project data / users

  • Program, project and area management

    Daily actuals on progress, changes, risks and performance for:

    • Projects
    • Executing departments
    • Subcontractors
    • Area, block, zone, system, room or deck
  • Real-time productivity and performance assessment

    Keep track of daily actuals on progress, performance and changes

    • CPI SPI and other EVMS insights
    • Apply the breakdown from project level all the way to root cause
    • Monitor progress, remaining to complete
    • Manage recovery, changes and risks
  • Production managers, supervisors, trade leads and charge hands

    Retrieve a multi-project overview of all relevant activities and priorities

    • See all assigned work and its priorities
    • See all relevant details of work package (material, component, predecessors, successors, scheduled start / finish, budgeted hours, progress)
    • Assess current performance and capacity needs
    • Assess future resource utilization
    • Submit hours, progress, risks, changes and issues
  • Project planners, work preparation, production planners and PMO

    Extend the use of ERP and Primavera P6:

    • Add more detail, dependencies and relations to plans
    • Apply a product breakdown structure for additional smart application
    • Add insights on work package or pallet status and keep track
    • Validate or apply production norms and assess performance
    • Signal relevant changes, issues and risks to mitigate them ASAP

"Every shipbuilding project is unique. However, shipbuilding follows a repetitive process. CADMATIC Floorganise supports this process with a dedicated project life cycle management and planning control setup that matches the logic of your shipyard, infrastructure and division of roles and functions."

Link 3D data and integrated planning – Reduce shipyard workshop hours by at least 15%

Data-driven shipbuilding and the digital transformation of operations present shipyards with the opportunity to achieve vast efficiency gains. For shipyard 4.0, research has shown that one source of operational inefficiency lies in the information flow gap that exists between engineering and design, planning, and production execution.
