Masterpiece in Motion - How to better manage complexity in shipbuilding

Master complexity, mitigate risks

Owners in every sector of the industry are demanding more sophisticated ships and platforms yet that need fewer resources to operate and maintain. In order to address the increasing demand for more value and greater energy efficiency, shipyards have been pushing technology and scale. The importance of onboard electronic systems, mechatronics, software is constantly growing, requiring a different approach to foster innovation while managing the associated complexity and risks to ensure reliability.

Satisfy complex and changing requirements:

Picto > Project Completion > Dassault Systèmes®
Capture the voice of the customer and ensure that the final product is developed to specification.
Picto > 3D Reliability > Dassault Systèmes®
Take advantage of system engineering to develop and deliver complex products with high reliability.
Picto > Ship 3D Simulation > Dassault Systèmes®
Test and validate options in real-time using advanced 3D simulation to avoid costly rework downstream.
Picto > Engineering Changes > Dassault Systèmes®
Assess, manage, and track impacts of changes to requirements.

The power of an integrated approach

Bringing together and aligning multi-disciplinary teams is critical to develop and deliver sophisticated products successfully.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides a unified collaborative environment that connects disciplines and requirements. Teams can define and experiment with multiple alternatives using 3D simulation early on in the development process before deciding on the optimal one. They can thereby avoid costly rework and delays downstream.
