Streamlining Manufacturing Operations on the Production Floor
Shipbuilding, Ship Maintenance, and Overhaul
Shipyards are looking to modernizing practices and leveraging digital technologies to take operations to new levels of productivity. The convergence of technologies enabled by a new model-based enterprise (MBE) philosophy leverage the engineering 3D models throughout Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) processes. In this new digital environment, shipyards can leverage technologies like connected product and equipment, optimized 3D illustrated work packages, inspection drones, augmented reality, and improved intelligence to create a new IT platform and reach new levels of productivity.
The key to enabling the effective use of these technologies is to connect data and systems throughout the enterprise for the entire product lifecycle from engineering into production and sustainment. iBASEt’s Solumina creates a Digital Thread for change management by integrating task planning and execution processes to engineering, scheduling, and parts management. Solumina handles much more than the electronic Technical Work Documents (eTWD), it becomes a critical part of the collaborative workflow that links processes across many departments and ensures delivery of the right information to the right place at the right time. The Digital Thread not only ensures configuration management it also maintains as-built and as-maintained records.
