Abeking & Rasmussen is a renowned shipyard that specializes in the construction and refitting of megayachts, special-purpose ships and naval vessels. The company brought PROSTEP on board with the aim of improving collaboration with its engineering partners. The recommendation we made to the executive board was that they first optimize the internal PLM landscape and thus lay the foundation for more efficient collaboration with partners.
For years, classification societies and shipyards have been looking for ways to move away from drawings and make the class approval process and processes, such as making the site survey model-based. Now, with the support of PROSTEP, DNV is making progress. Together, we have developed a solution to provide surveyors with 3D models of the hull structure in a 3D PDF container that can be used offline.
Maritime systems such as cruise ships and frigates comprise several million components, far exceeding the magnitude of other industrial products. This poses particular challenges for shipyards in terms of production planning and control. As part of the ProProS project, PROSTEP has developed a new planning methodology based on a digital twin together with the Lürssen shipyard group and the Machine Tool Laboratory (WZL) at RWTH University in Aachen, with the aim of providing shipyards with better supports. The project, which was funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Action (BMWK), was brought to a successful close at the end of May.
The production planning and control of complex ships such as frigates or cruise ships poses great challenges for shipyards. As part of the ProProS project, a new planning methodology based on a digital twin was developed to better support shipyards. The project, funded by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection, was successfully completed at the end of May.
The OCX standard used to exchange ship moulded forms and structures is on its why to industrial practice. Developed in the APPROVE research project, it is now seen as a viable solution by both users from shipyards and classification societies as well as CAx solution providers. PROSTEP is a member of the OCX consortium and helps customers to apply OCX-based data exchange.
Shipbuilding and plant engineering are industries well served by PROSTEP’s comprehensive portfolio of consulting services and digitalization solutions. In recent months, we have shown our colours at ICCAS, ACHEMA, and the DACH U(n)ser Meeting powered by Schuller & Company to strengthen our relationships with existing customers and attracting new customers.
