AVEVA: Major Deal Signed with Ingalls Shipbuilding

(marineLink)
Thursday, July 19, 2012

AVEVA signed a major contract extension with Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE: HII) for AVEVA MARS, an Enterprise Resource Management (ERM) software solution from the  AVEVA Enterprise portfolio.  Implemented at Ingalls Shipbuilding, a division of HII, this new contract will incorporate additional maintenance, services, consultancy, and development to further enhance and tailor the AVEVA MARS system to Ingalls’ business processes. 
Supplying U.S. Naval and Coast Guard vessels, Ingalls has been an important customer of AVEVA MARS since 2006. AVEVA MARS, with modules for Material, Planning and Production designed specifically for the shipbuilding industry, has enabled Ingalls to streamline and improve shipyard and waterfront operations from initial proposals through to commissioning.  
“We have developed a good working relationship that is enabling us to develop enhancement solutions that benefit both HII and AVEVA”, said Mike Deutsch, Ingalls Shipbuilding eSHIPS Director. “One example is we were maintaining storeroom inventories in offline databases in order to manage operations. AVEVA helped us by developing a storeroom module for MARS that eliminated the offline databases and achieved greater visibility of material availability, and improved communication between departments. I am confident the new enhancements AVEVA is delivering this year will help to make our operation even more successful”.
“As a specialized shipbuilding solution, Ingalls Shipbuilding was attracted by the many business benefits that can be achieved. It is already delivering operational and financial efficiencies”, added William Muldoon, Executive Vice President – North America, AVEVA. “This is exactly what AVEVA MARS delivers, a tightly integrated ERM solution that is easy to deploy and use. It supports the entire shipbuilding process for our customers. We are delighted HII has made this significant commitment to AVEVA technology and services.”
