Dassault Systèmes and Samsung Heavy Industries Have Partnered to Create a Digital Shipyard That Includes an Unmanned Cutter
Simply put, our new “smart yard” will use new digital transformation solutions to reduce construction times and improve quality control. The goal is to establish a fully digital shipyard, which will give us a competitive edge in the global market for high-tech shipbuilding.
The smart yard optimizes the scheduling and execution of shipyard operations and streamlines the flow of information required for construction. It also accelerates production and assembly by shortening delivery time. This helps Samsung Heavy Industries better meet their booming demand for liquefied natural gas carriers.
By introducing model-based systems engineering to their ship designs, Samsung Heavy Industries can create smarter and more sustainable vessels with increased automation and new systems. This advanced process is already becoming a standard product development method in the transportation, aerospace, and high-tech industries. Samsung Heavy Industries is using systems engineering to strengthen its competitiveness in the ship design process and accelerate this process thanks to full traceability from concept to production.
“Research has shown that automation systems affect business efficiency in all industries,” said Jung Nam Lee, Samsung Heavy Industries Its director of DT. “This helps save money and improve the quality of finished ships.”
Collaborating with Smart SHI will create possibilities for Dassault Systèmes to organize consultative groups for digital transformation. With this integration, Dassault Systèmes will be able to define and validate new processes and tools required to achieve the smart yard. Our collaboration will involve our core technologies as well as experts from our local office and global headquarters.
With the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and a smart yard, Dassault Systèmes will be able to provide a variety of information in real-time. Data sources such as production data, supplier data, and logistics data will give you an all-inclusive digital footprint. With simulation and immersive technologies, sustainable innovations can be born more quickly and generate more competitive offerings.
“Korea’s shipbuilding industry has to transform with new and advanced technologies if it wants to keep its leadership in productivity and quality for complex vessels,” François-Xavier Dumez, Vice President of Dassault Systèmes. “We are proud to support SHI in their journey, and through our cooperation with Samsung Heavy Industries we’ve been given the opportunity to introduce our outstanding marine industry solution experiences to Korea’s shipbuilding industry. We hope this will bring about a new paradigm.
