Transforming ship-building and fleet management through model-based digital integration, smart manufacturing and lifecycle management.
The design and production of vessels generates masses of information from disparate data sources.The need to seamlessly integrate systems internally and externally is paramount to developing a fully end-to end digital enterprise and to increase productivity. In this stream we explore how, by leveraging these connected systems, companies will be able to better drive innovation and maintain market dominance.
An ageing workforce and inefficiencies across the supply chain demand a move to a more automated shipyard. Within this stream we not only analyse how shipyards can execute their digital strategy and transform through Industry 4.0, but also explore how data analytics can help find said inefficiencies and develop productive solutions.
The sheer complexity and scale of any vessel means it is challenging to collate, utilise and display related data across it's lifecycle. True collaboration is essential in creating a digital thread that will then boost understanding of systems and create agile and responsive maintenance schedules. In this stream we look at how analysis in the virtual environment can help fleets drive vessel availability and lower support costs.
In 2020 PI Marine will be coming to Norfolk, Virginia
