What may seem a cost-effective solution can demand extensive customisation. across multiple. spanning a wide range of disciplines including overall planning. Executive Management Information Business Requirements In order to make informed business decisions on large projects and individual activities. For the executive management team charged with making critical business decisions. Using tools such as a user-definable management dashboard. For their decisions to be fully informed. Poor decisions and systemic inefficiencies can cost a shipyard hundreds of thousands of dollars in rework and missed opportunities.AVEVA Integrated Shipbuilding . the information provided must meet the unique sensitivities of the marine industry. executive decision makers not only have the access they need to monitor and measure project and information status. and with decades of proven success.. the reality of the modern shipyard actually handicaps the executive decision process.an AVEVA White Paper 2. the AVEVA Marine portfolio offers an unmatched range of design. something that is essential for informed decision making. ‘Designed specifically for the marine industry. Business risk is dramatically increased when decisions are made using incomplete or inaccurate information. It can be impossible to dynamically synchronize data sets. One of the key responsibilities of executive decision-makers is to reduce business risk throughout their organisation and this can only be achieved with complete. and with decades of proven success. leading to incomplete and inaccurate pools of information. corporate executives and senior management require a reliable and accurate information infrastructure. Operational Realities More often than not. supporting early and informed decisions that reduce the operational risk to their shipyard. This lack of integration is often caused by the use of generic PLM software and other technology not designed to meet the needs of the shipbuilding industry. Project knowledge is locked inside isolated systems which cannot be easily shared. Designed specifically for the marine industry. dynamic and cross-functional information..’ Page 5 . which ultimately provides a less than optimised system at a very high total cost of ownership. The competitiveness of a shipyard is seriously impaired and the overall agility of the organization is compromised. process control and information management capability. and ensure a rapid return on investment through major cost savings. This allows them to manage by exception. that are incapable of giving a complete overview across multiple projects. The AVEVA Solution AVEVA provides the industry’s most complete and fully integrated shipbuilding solution. Poorly informed decisions can lead to fundamental design errors and a major impact on downstream production. concurrent projects. but can also be alerted to potential issues the moment they arise. making it difficult to capture an evolving view of the status of a project. Ensuring that information is available and accessible underpins the entire architecture of the AVEVA solution. the AVEVA Marine portfolio offers an unmatched range of design. design. the consequences of a poorly integrated information management system can have a direct impact on the bottom line. production and materials management.
AVEVA Integrated Shipbuilding . the AVEVA solution directly addresses systemic weaknesses that so often compromise the tendering and business capture process.. This is based not only on new information. it must compete with other yards to present the most attractive proposal to the contracting owner that balances cost. restricting a shipyard’s ability to respond to project opportunities. from early estimation and pre-calculation through future projects and program cost management where actual costs are monitored and aggregated in a real-time environment. This reduces risk in both material estimation and business logistics for the shipyard by helping to ensure that tenders are accurate and repeatable. Having an integrated business system across all project disciplines is critical to delivering quick and accurate tender documentation. but on the capture and intelligent reuse of historical information from past tenders.’ Page 6 . and the absence of a well documented process obstructs the integration with planning. integration with project execution. and its impact on the overall business. AVEVA delivers a consistent cost management solution that takes into account all relevant cost elements. Those shipyards with a less systematic approach to tendering can suffer inefficiencies during each proposal. slots and marker lists. Changes are very time consuming and costly. A lack of computerized and consistent information can make a company highly dependent on key individuals. and reducing its overall competitiveness. Operational Realities Within many shipyards the cost estimation and tendering process can be complex and time consuming. as well as current information from sister-ship projects. AVEVA allows the business capture and sales teams the flexibility they need to be more competitive by responding quickly with accurate and informed proposals. and draw on past project experience as part of a continual optimisation process. Business Capture and Sales Business Requirements Before a shipyard can engage in any vessel construction project.an AVEVA White Paper 3.. since they cannot easily draw on past estimates and experience for future projects. which often extends three years or more into the future. The AVEVA Solution Using a fully integrated shipbuilding model. The ultimate profitability of the business demands that the tendering and business capture processes produce accurate and competitive proposals that can be efficiently delivered throughout the lifecycle of the project. The consequence can be a rigid and manpower-intensive process that produces a less than optimised proposal. the AVEVA solution directly addresses systemic weaknesses that so often compromise the tendering and business capture process. procurement and supply chain management. ‘Using a fully integrated shipbuilding model. Executive management can also operate with a much greater degree of confidence in the quality of the tendering process.
an AVEVA White Paper 4. Formal processes can be established to manage the flow of information to external classification societies and interdepartmental stakeholders. the only way to coordinate activity is through manual synchronization which can be time consuming and prone to error. This fully integrated and highly granular planning and control process allows planners to create accurate scheduling that reflects current project conditions. Planning and project directors. with major downstream consequences. A lack of integration between planning and material management results in materials not being in the right place at the right time. materials. The WBS elements are linked and scheduled with the major milestones for strategic planning. Operational Realities The use of different tools for different planning tasks is the norm for many shipyards. AVEVA’s integrated planning capabilities provide the administrative control that is essential to project execution integrity and productivity for both current and future projects. materials. and maintains build quality. Initial major milestones can be established together with rough-cut plans using work breakdown structures (WBS) to define primary scheduling targets. ‘AVEVA provides seamless integration with design information. Disconnected security strategies mean that engineers can incorporate non-validated information into project designs. and use it as a tool to monitor project status. are responsible for the coordination of all tasks for both design and production in a multi-project environment. to ensure consistency and compliance. and resource management to ensure reliable planning that is efficient and cost-effective. and resource management to ensure reliable planning that is efficient. Page 7 . and task work packages are defined down to the lowest level within a WBS. schedules will be unrealistic and the actual status of project activities will not be fed back into the process. and making it difficult to measure and improve performance.. optimisation and cost-effective execution. Without an integrated approach to the planning and control process. causing unnecessary additional design loops. planning and project control can make the difference between business success and failure. an AVEVA solution manages information status throughout the project lifecycle. Poor logistics ultimately lead to project delays and reduced quality. In combination with strict permission controls and a customisable workflow for the validation of information. adversely impacting later activities. To provide just three examples: a lack of integration between production planning and design planning leads to late availability of drawings for production. Simulations can also be run to analyse potential scheduling impacts and a dispatch view can be created for foremen in the field to monitor and manage work group schedules. productivity. together with their staff.’ The AVEVA Solution The AVEVA solution for shipyards supports planning and control from high-level strategic coordination to individual shop floor operations and across multiple projects.. Without automated integration between the different planning levels. This situation makes it very difficult to ensure any degree of planning integrity and strategic coordination.AVEVA Integrated Shipbuilding . This critical responsibility touches on virtually every aspect of a project and plays a pivotal role in build strategy. Planning and Control Business Requirements Planning and schedule control lie at the heart of any well executed project. The overall lack of project traceability actually promotes poor quality information. providing seamless integration with design information. The result can have a major impact on productivity and cost. It measures project performance based on an EVMS (Earned Value Management System) methodology. assembly and outfitting. cost effective and maintains build quality. And a lack of integration within the design processes themselves can necessitate expensive rework later in the production phase. quality. The multi-disciplinary nature of this management process demands a comprehensive view of the overall project as it constantly evolves. identifying and mitigating conflicts. The ability of a shipyard to tightly manage security.
. This is essential to drive greater efficiency into today’s highly competitive shipbuilding industry. However. or production. and rapidly create and validate new designs to maximise the efficiency of the vessel and its production process. ‘AVEVA integrates engineering and design data into one product model. AVEVA's focus on interoperability enables huge flexibility in the choice of engineering authoring tools. ensuring a ‘single source of truth’ for all information. electrical and piping schematics and all aspects of hull design and outfitting. AVEVA design solutions have been proven for decades in the world’s leading shipyards. the solution provides an interface to industry-standard mechanical CAD systems. it is no longer enough to have world-class design applications. Operational Realities Unlike most construction projects. it also creates opportunities for miscommunication. assembly and commissioning processes. While the design and management teams are tasked with engineering all aspects of the ship. functional design. they require world-class applications that include instrumentation. AVEVA integrates engineering and design data into one product model. detailed design. To achieve this. via the Internet or an organisation's existing private networks. This ability is crucial in a shipbuilding industry that is increasingly reliant on subcontracting. project delays and expensive rework. it enables information to be securely used across global deployments. The result is a collection of isolated databases that actually lock away the critical design information. planning and control processes. which must be tightly integrated with the planning and production disciplines used throughout the project lifecycle. While this can compress schedules. negatively impacting project productivity. ensuring a “single source of truth” for all information. making it difficult to share and control project design information.an AVEVA White Paper 5. For example. it is commonplace for shipyards to begin production well before the vessel design is complete.. planning and materials data. The engineering team must be able to make full reuse of past designs. Additionally. outsourcing and other dispersed relationships.AVEVA Integrated Shipbuilding . but also guarantees a high level of integration across the other phases of the shipbuilding process. as well as a common catalogue that shares material information between design and material management applications. data inconsistencies. material and production information is optimised and available to support the manufacturing.’ Page 8 . and a lack of permission control can result in designs based on incorrect or invalid information. These ‘silos‘ of information demand a great deal of manual intervention to manage. they are also responsible for ensuring that relevant engineering. The multi-disciplinary nature of engineering and design means that most shipyards employ a wide range of 2D and 3D design applications. Engineering and Design Business Requirements Most of the planning and execution of the shipbuilding process is highly dependent on the design of the vessel. The AVEVA Solution Built specifically for the needs of the marine industry. whether engineering and design. they must also eliminate the information silos between the engineering. from a host of different software suppliers that provide little or no operational integration.
to ensure the orderly procurement of more complex. Procurement and Supply Chain Business Requirements Procurement and materials management directors have one of the most difficult coordination tasks in the shipyard. which damages project schedules and impacts production efficiency. etc. costing time and money. These weaknesses in the procurement process have a cascade effect across the entire project. designers can also select standard material items. plus the ability to link 3D objects directly to an item in those catalogues. The AVEVA solution provides this capability right from the earliest stages of the product. Poor information quality has very direct project consequences. At the same time. inability to identify long-lead items.’ Page 9 .an AVEVA White Paper 6. part lists and material catalogues. Using standard project component lists. it is also critical that the procurement team be informed of changes in a timely way so they can take appropriate action to avoid unnecessary expense and delays. negotiation with vendors. the solution also enables detailed management of the project component catalogue. can have serious cash flow consequences which. a wide range of other activities so it is absolutely essential that the information they require is accessible and accurate. Through this system. Operational Realities The greatest risk to creating an efficient procurement and supply chain process is poor quality information and a lack of coordination. ‘The key to the AVEVA Marine procurement and supply chain strategy is the ability for shipyards to start the procurement process at the design stage and maintain a collaborative exchange of information throughout the project lifecycle. The tools provided can actually reduce access to the complete and accurate information set that is vital in the making of key project decisions. incorrect and incomplete orders. designers can propose potential suppliers and initial delivery dates. can threaten the entire material procurement process. These tasks are dependent on. A controlled workflow process ensures that orders complete the appropriate review cycle before being marked ‘Ready‘ and that they are tracked throughout the delivery process until handover to supply and logistics. Since the shipbuilding process is in a constant state of flux. for purchase order generation. They are responsible for the process of planning procurement of major equipment. Lack of visibility of an elemental activity like budgeting. The AVEVA Solution The key to the AVEVA Marine procurement and supply chain strategy is the ability for shipyards to start the procurement process at the design stage and to maintain a collaborative exchange of information throughout the project lifecycle. long-lead items. through a materials request system that serves as a focal point for all purchase orders and enquiries. for example. which can include compromising the ability to negotiate effectively with vendors. and executing and expediting the actual purchase. HVAC systems.. internal requisitioning of all equipment. It is all too common for procurement to be seen as a separate and independent activity when it should be an integral part of the much wider design and production process. and influenced by.. Incorrect materials and delivery delays jeopardise work order and resource planning. in turn. material and services.AVEVA Integrated Shipbuilding . such as engines. and delivering at the wrong time or location. with the correct standard and certificates.
tracks non-conformances and issues material for planned tasks and work packages according to the production schedule. identifies missing materials and enables automated material borrowing. The seamless integration between stock and production planning enables a dispatch function that provides real-time visibility of material holdings. All warehoused goods are tracked. material requisitions are easily visualised. and material attributes are monitored and flagged. A strict stocking workflow registers quality and non-conformance status.’ Page 10 ... With no structured interface between stock and planning. planning and production processes. While the warehouse can sometimes be seen as a bottleneck in project execution. Operational Realities In reality. The ability of the warehouse to deliver the right materials at the right time depends entirely on well-established links to procurement and production processes. there is also a complete lack of visibility between issued material and production operations. in accordance with the real-time plan and production schedule. non-conformance is identified. ‘Stock administration within an AVEVA Marine environment means seamless integration with procurement and planning to ensure that material is directed to production in the right quantity at the right time in accordance with the real-time plan and production schedule. it is the lack of coordination with other project areas that lies at the root of this problem. Failure of the warehouse to provide the materials to meet work order requirements results in a waste of resources. Stock and Logistics Business Requirements The primary interface between procurement and production is formed by the stock and logistics activities. A clear view of upstream and downstream priorities is vital to enable the stock manager to synchronize activities with the project. time and money. delivers major project benefits. it is unusual for the stock manager to have a broad view of planning. greatly impairing overall project flexibility. integrated with the procurement.an AVEVA White Paper 7. The warehouse is typically isolated from project planning. From a warehouse perspective. as well as recording the physical stock location for all materials. The consequences of this are significant. Providing advanced warehouse management capabilities. The AVEVA Solution Stock administration within an AVEVA Marine environment means seamless integration with procurement and planning to ensure that material is directed to production in the right quantity at the right time. goods return. procurement and production priorities. Using a warehouse dispatch view. The stock manager’s warehouse receives materials.AVEVA Integrated Shipbuilding . stock card controls. daily planning and re-planning activities are performed with no consideration of material availability. Coordination and visibility of the different functional areas throughout the project play an important role in improving production efficiency and meeting project schedules. etc. making it difficult to guarantee that the right material will be available at the right time for production work orders. The warehouse administration controls standard activities such as inventory counting. and deliver the right materials at the right time. allowing the warehouse to plan schedules for gathering and issuing material against the active production plans. so that materials are only released to production if resources are available to complete the work order.
resource management. It is not uncommon to see mismatches between design and production planning cause inaccurate or incomplete information to be delivered at the wrong time. Object status and document versioning guarantee that the latest information is available throughout the shipyard. Changes forced by uncoordinated project management can impact all areas of the production process from parts manufacture to assembly and pre-outfitting. The measurable benefit of a marine solution that is integrated with all aspects of the shipbuilding process explains why hundreds of shipyards around the world rely on AVEVA to reduce production risk and improve business profitability. and quality tracking. This is the most complex phase of the project. improving production quality.’ Page 11 . BOMs. and rework resulting from poor upstream coordination. material and production planning supports the most ambitious building strategies including palletising.AVEVA Integrated Shipbuilding . Modifications are tracked and analysed for design and material impact before being validated. Lack of integrated information results in delayed or incorrect executive decisions that will almost certainly exacerbate scheduling and resource conflicts. The production and project directors. or expensive rework. the management of the production process is a moving target. A well-managed production infrastructure is characterised by the completion of a vessel that meets all defined quality standards and is delivered on time and within budget. planning. It is here that the quality and coordination of the previous processes will determine the ultimate productivity of the production environment. personnel. Operational Realities With most ship production taking place in parallel with design and procurement. struggle with the daily realities of the work orders. stock allocation. Having the right information at all levels of management means that shipyards have the accurate BOMs and managed stock they need to meet assembly and outfitting requirements without delays. together with the shipyard foremen. The consequences are schedule delays and unplanned rework at the most expensive and disruptive point of the project. Production Business Requirements Management. logistics and production planning. The AVEVA Solution The benefits of AVEVA’s integrated shipbuilding solution are clearly demonstrated when faced with the complexities of the production process. AVEVA enables an efficient production environment by providing the right information at the right time through consistent coordination with design. and it is also the phase with the smallest margin of error. design. as well as onboard erection and final outfitting. ‘AVEVA enables an efficient production environment by providing the right information at the right time. from production locations anywhere in the world. procurement and stock management all culminate in the production process. Easy online access to any ship documentation. etc. reduces the time spent looking for information and the risk of out-of-date data. can have a massive impact on project schedules and can ultimately make the difference between a profitable project and one that makes a loss. missing material. quality control..an AVEVA White Paper 8. mitigating disruption across the production stages.

All essential documentation is classified and managed. commissioning and delivery are complex and time consuming. Rather than preparing for the delivery of the vessel throughout the project. the more time consuming and costly it can be. by providing access to consistent. AVEVA integrated shipbuilding enables the efficient professional commissioning and maintenance of all ship systems. vendor information and material control to allow smooth and efficient commissioning and delivery. early in the project.AVEVA Integrated Shipbuilding . Missing. and the flexibility to reformat and repurpose documentation as demanded by the delivery process. Commissioning and Delivery Business Requirements As the last phase of the shipbuilding process. and often suffer from late execution of production tasks as delivery deadlines rapidly approach. ‘AVEVA integrated shipbuilding enables efficient professional commissioning and maintenance of all ship systems. The AVEVA Solution The integrated nature of the AVEVA shipbuilding solution provides the consistent management of production schedules. to ensure that required documentation is created and maintained throughout the lifecycle. inaccurate and inconsistent information all contribute to delays in the commissioning and delivery process. regardless of shipyard and supplier locations around the world. supplier and certification documentation. The integrated shipbuilding environment also provides dramatic improvements in the overall quality of the technical information delivered to owners and their maintenance teams. laying the groundwork for future contract opportunities. incomplete. Comprising both physical inspection and the delivery of process.’ Page 12 . For example. many shipyards find themselves under great pressure to compile the requisite documents against a backdrop of looming deadlines. All critical documentation and certifications are captured from the beginning of the project and managed throughout the entire lifecycle. A professional delivery can help to secure prompt final payment. Operational Realities With many deliverables at the end of the fabrication process. production and commissioning are fully retained. This information-centric approach provides rapid access to critical information. design specifications. the ability to check.an AVEVA White Paper 9. to ensure efficient vessel certification and complete handover to the shipowner. The strong technical dependencies between design. 3D routing. Badly planned commissioning activities can also force yards to employ expensive specialists at short notice to assist with the execution of delivery requirements. commissioning and delivery are important to successful and timely project completion.. Ultimately. production planning and material processes. while leaving a lasting and positive impression with the owner. Commissioning and production planning are consistently managed to remove bottlenecks and accelerate the overall delivery process. An optimised delivery process is vital to the project. the result is two very expensive situations that shipbuilders should seek to avoid: extended sea trials and longer time at the outfitting quay. cutting the cost. The more disconnected this phase is from the project process. for incomplete or inconsistent data. material and vendor specifications can be fully visualized and quickly understood.. commissioning and delivery represent the final test of any shipyard’s information management system. quality engineering information throughout the managed commissioning. relationships between schematic data. time and disruption of on-board maintenance activities.

All activities. including those from global suppliers. The shipyard is no longer isolated within a single site. contracts with global suppliers are treated as separate and external activities by project and senior management to the extent that these activities are seen as a ‘black box‘ on the overall project schedule. The result is the relentless rise of outsourcing and the increasing need to establish and maintain effective working relationships with suppliers around the globe. enables the support of ‘virtual supply‘. so the logistics of the relationship are relatively straightforward. but must now extend and integrate its supply and management activities across other companies in distributed locations. As these specialists improve product efficiencies and reduce costs. to use capacity wherever it exists. but their precious ‘cargo’ . Likewise. There is no ability to apply the same level of management and oversight to extended shipyard activities as is applied to onsite activities. Status reports can be shared with the management and delivery teams to identify scheduling conflicts and technical exceptions early in the process. Linking procurement. AVEVA Global also translates the sharing of information into hard economic benefit. The modern shipyard needs new tools and resources to create an efficient and effective extended shipyard. Suppliers can monitor project schedules and design information to ensure delivery timing and technical compatibility. many shipyards do not have the tools and resources they need to track. but a fully integrated part of the total project plan. the use of subcontracting design companies or agencies has grown impressively. Third-party suppliers are no longer a ‘black box’ on the schedule. Ship owners and classification societies can view plans and delivery schedules to monitor the process and submit comments.AVEVA Integrated Shipbuilding . The AVEVA Solution AVEVA’s integrated marine solution provides the industry’s most comprehensive set of tools for today’s extended shipyard. AVEVA provides the collaborative infrastructure necessary for all stakeholders to exchange key documents and information. technical specifications and certifications are managed and controlled independently of geographical considerations. and technical incompatibilities that can cause disruptive rework that jeopardises compliance with delivery specifications. the uploading and downloading of project files to FTP sites is eliminated.
