How PLM software improves product lifecycle management for ships
Product and process knowledge are key resources in achieving business success. However, many shipbuilders struggle to use and manage these assets from project to project. PLM software brings together data from disjointed software tools in one centralized environment, which helps to:
Improve productivity and reduce cycle time
Reduce development errors and costs
Improve value chain orchestration
Provide better visibility to enable better business decisions
How shipbuilders can easily document change management
Change management is a key capability of a PLM solution. Because a PLM system is the single source of truth across domains and throughout the ship lifecycle, project changes are captured in real time. This ensures that all stakeholders are seeing the most up-to-date information at any given time. Having a PLM system with closed-loop change management supports collaboration and drives better decision-making.
How shipbuilders can accurately manage bill-of-materials
Another key capability of a PLM software solution is effective bill-of-materials (BOM) management. PLM software provides the visibility necessary to manage and present BOM information. It should manage that information across the full ship lifecycle, bridging the gap between the upstream stages and the downstream stages of the lifecycle.
How shipbuilders can efficiently monitor maritime supply chain management
A PLM system can help foster collaboration and information sharing throughout the supply chain as well. A PLM system can capture, share and maintain requirements in one place, providing the latest, most accurate information to stakeholders throughout the organization and the supply chain.
