Optimize Your Ship Structure, from Design to Production Engineering

It’s time to optimize your marine structure activities and gain an edge with digital continuity.

The fabrication and assembly of a ship structure is a complex, time-consuming, and labor-intensive undertaking that's at the core of every shipyard. To stay competitive, you are looking for ways to improve your productivity, reduce errors and avoid costly rework. 

Imagine if you could work within a single environment and take advantage of digital continuity from structure design to production engineering to boost your efficiency. Automate the work preparation for all structural elements. Define and simulate a detailed build strategy that optimizes the usage of your shipyard resources and validate it before moving to execution. Generate 3D work instructions to clearly guide workers through manufacturing operations.

Here is how your ship structure optimization journey can take place on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

Business Story

Huangpu Wenchong Shipyard chose Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform for design and manufacturing planning, tackling key production activities such as manufacturing assembly definition, structure work preparation, process planning and the generation of 3D interactive work instructions to help optimize production. The company benefits from digital continuity between engineering and manufacturing to simulate and validate the build process before execution begins, which helps mitigate unforeseen, last-minute issues. 

To improve our productivity and reduce our costs, we decided to deploy a shipbuilding management solution that combines design, management and production in one integrated environment. This environment is Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
