Closed-loop change management for shipbuilders

Shipbuilding projects are becoming increasingly complex as new technologies are integrated to make ships safer, more efficient, and more sustainable.

Changes in product design or manufacturing are inevitable on every shipbuilding project. How these changes are handled determines whether they’re a threat or an opportunity. Download the ebook to learn how closed-loop change management supports faster and better project execution.

Why closed-loop communication is important to the shipbuilding industry

With increasingly complex projects, there is a greater number of contributors working on a project who need to collaborate. Closed-loop communication becomes critical to keeping the project under control.

Product lifecycle management software creates a backbone for seamless communication, bringing together data across domains and throughout the product lifecycle. Changes are stored immediately, allowing all stakeholders to access the most up-to-date information anytime.

Benefits of using change management software

A key benefit of using change management software is having a better understanding of how changes impact the project, allowing shipbuilders to plan schedules and resources accordingly. This helps reduce delays and costs.

Other benefits include having the agility to adopt new technologies and tracking all data and project modifications to ensure compliance with requirements.

How improved change management can support boat manufacturing

A change management solution supports shipbuilding projects at any stage of the shipbuilding process. Beyond the design phase, change management software can also provide value during boat manufacturing. It can interact with enterprise resource management planning (ERP), manufacturing resource planning (MRP), and manufacturing operations management (MOM) systems to streamline operations and maximize productivity.

Integrate change management with enterprise resource planning systems

An enterprise resource management (ERP) system is crucial to helping shipbuilders manage and plan daily activities. Implementing a closed-loop change management solution that connects to the ERP and other key systems ensures that untracked changes don’t wreak havoc on shipbuilding projects.
