Engineering and Design for Lean Shipbuilding

New business paper describes how the marine industry can develop Lean methodologies to press on in lean times.
 
AVEVA has announced its publication of a new business paper – ‘Engineering & Design for Lean Shipbuilding’. In this paper, AVEVA examines how engineering and design information can be readily shared to enable a highly efficient, concurrent workflow that progressively refines a design in a controlled, iterative manner to ensure ‘right-first-time’ fabrication and assembly. For shipbuilders, such Lean business processes offer a means of sustaining profitability and reducing business risk in a challenging market.
 
“AVEVA’s Engineering and Design for Lean Shipbuilding enables shipbuilders to achieve a fully refined design before it goes to fabrication and assembly, avoiding costly rework,” said Bruce Douglas, Senior Vice President, EDS Strategy & Marketing, AVEVA. “This can only be achieved if all engineering disciplines are working together in the same integrated process. Information integration must be pervasive. Engineering and design information status has to be presented in a commonly agreed manner and each engineer should be able to see changes to the design quickly. Engineers should also have control over when to implement new changes. And as designs on complex projects often cross many contractual boundaries, proper access rights management is essential.”
 
AVEVA's Integrated Engineering and Design solution supports the Engineering and Design for Lean Shipbuilding vision. It improves project efficiency and reduces engineering and design costs by offering complementary products that draw on common processes, disciplines and deliverables. Critical information is efficiently shared between disciplines and across teams to simplify the process and to improve project schedule and quality.
