New business paper describes how technology offers proven collaboration capabilities that benefit all parties in warship procurement projects

Aveva today announced its publication of a new business paper, “Taking Command: How Aveva technology can increase capabilities in naval fleet management.” In this paper, Aveva examines six ways that navies can exploit technologies used in other sectors, such as the offshore industry, to work more closely and effectively with the shipbuilders with whom they partner. The objective is to avoid many of the unnecessary difficulties that can often be encountered in what are already challenging engineering projects. This paper describes how software technology can be used to overcome many project and practical constraints.

“Even the most capable naval authorities are faced with difficulties in working closely with their shipbuilders, especially now that warship projects are often placed with foreign yards or between several yards,” said Bruce Douglas, Senior Vice-President, EDS Strategy & Marketing, Aveva. “Technology now enables efficient collaborative projects, so that a navy can become an active participant in, and take firm control of, its projects. This commercial, off-the-shelf, proven technology has already transformed project efficiency in other industries and is directly applicable to naval projects. It enables a new and more effective approach to naval warship procurement and lifecycle management.”

The six areas covered in the new business paper include the value of partnership, work-sharing technology, security assurance, standardization, work sharing in naval practice and the overall benefits to naval shipbuilders.

Mr. Douglas added, “The powerful capabilities that this technology provides enable a navy to actively collaborate with its shipbuilders. Better-informed decisions can be taken more quickly, problems addressed early and clear project oversight maintained. This offers considerable potential benefit to all parties. Navies benefit from reduced costs, program risk and delivery time, while their shipbuilders gain increased efficiency, profitability, and the competitive advantage of becoming preferred suppliers of high value projects.”
