Safer, cleaner, greener vessels and offshore structures, as well as new sources of energy, require a whole new way of thinking.
TECHNIA deliver PLM solutions specifically for the Marine & Offshore industry. With PLM, imagining and delivering winning sustainable innovations more efficiently, while also keeping costs and schedules within contractual boundaries has never been easier.
Establish an essential infrastructure for growth, enabling standardization.
Enable global collaboration internally, and with external partners and suppliers.
Focus on standardization, reuse of information and parts, automation and strategically use IT tools.
Enable real concurrent engineering, automate processes and save valuable delivery time.
The industry is facing major challenges delivering projects and solutions on time and on budget. Based on the extremely profitable oil business, the project cost overrun has somewhat been covered in the total ROI. With reduced oil prices a number of projects are unprofitable, business is slowing down – and companies are downsizing. So, what should we do? Innovate!
New solutions, new products. Innovate the way we work; i.e. change the way we work. Learn from other industries that have been fighting with tough competition and low margins for decades, like the automotive industry, mass production and like the aerospace industry, developing complex and large products – even customized one-off airplanes.
These industries have been focusing on standardization, reuse of information and parts, automation and they have strategically used IT tools to facilitate innovation. They have been able to utilize the fact that all information today is digital. The solution is named Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and is, in fact, a collaboration platform enabling all involved partners to work jointly on the same information, wherever they are in the world.
Both shipbuilding and offshore engineering companies have invested heavily in computer-aided tools and IT to efficiently perform operations, planning and manufacturing. Every discipline has special tools to create drawings, 3D-models, simulations, process charts, project plans, documents etc. Numerous databases are established to store all information and data generated, from start to end.
Moreover, the next generation PLM solutions have completely integrated engineering applications covering disciplines like 3D design, simulation, process design, electrical schematics and 3D cabling, manufacturing planning and preparation, project management, and change management in one harmonized collaboration platform.
