AVEVA (LSE:AVV), provider of engineering design and information management solutions for the plant, power and marine industries, announced the release of AVEVA Integrated Shipbuilding, the latest in its series of industry whitepapers. This whitepaper explores how shipyards can optimize the design, procurement and production process through improved information management, shortening schedules, increasing productivity and driving down costs.

Written by AVEVA’s team of experienced naval architects and shipbuilding engineers, the whitepaper identifies and analyses a number of key business processes that have a direct impact on the profitability and ultimate success of today’s shipyards, including:
•       Business capture and sales
•       Executive management information
•       Planning and control
•       Engineering and design
•       Procurement and supply chain
•       Stock and logistics
•       Production
•       Commissioning and delivery
•       The extended shipyard

The paper examines how today’s highly globalized shipbuilding projects often struggle with very localized and disconnected information assets. These “silos” of information make it difficult for shipyards to cope profitably and safely with the staggering amounts of data that the shipbuilding process generates.

The paper proposes the “integration” of both process and technology, so that all data can be validated, shared, audited, automated and re-used, across all business requirements. The integrated shipyard can also operate efficiently in a global environment with multiple vendors and subcontractors, dispersed across many different countries.

The whitepaper is available for download from AVEVA’s website: www.aveva.com/whitepapers
