Shipbuilding process & data management


A game-changing solution under development for modern shipbuilding

The shipbuilding industry is characterized by fierce competition and declining profits: Shipbuilders are under increasing pressure to build ships faster and at lower cost, while navigating greater network complexity with many partners, owners, and operators.

Ship design and building are more complex than ever before, producing an overwhelming volume of data. Recent research indicates that up to 20% of employees spend nearly half their productive time just searching for documents and data. Even when they find it, the uncertainty around its accuracy remains a challenge. 

While some shipyards have attempted to overcome these challenges through digitalization, many are finding that off-the-shelf solutions fall short. These platforms, often designed for industries with very different needs, only address a portion of the shipbuilding process, leading to widespread skepticism and wariness of digitalization solutions.

Yet, the future need not be so bleak. By investing in digitalization solutions specifically tailored for shipbuilding, there's an opportunity to streamline shipbuilding process and data management and significantly improve overall shipyard efficiency.
