Damen Shipyards to transform shipbuilding with Dassault Systèmes
p> International shipyard company Damen Shipyards Group is to use Dassault Systèmes’ marine and offshore industry solution experiences to digitally transform its shipbuilding operations.

Damen Shipyards Group, which comprises 32 yards and 9,000 employees, will use the Designed for Sea, Winning Bid for Sea, Optimized Production for Sea, and On Time to Sea industry solution experiences. Built on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, these solutions integrate sales, marketing, design, engineering, manufacturing and services and will enable the company to improve collaboration, optimise existing products and processes, and accelerate the delivery of innovative and configurable products.

“Following a thorough analysis of marketplace solutions, we selected Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform to execute our digital strategy and add value to our business,” said Aart Rupert, CIO at Damen Shipyards. “Dassault Systèmes’ portfolio of M&O improves and supports collaboration and operational performance across Damen, to better serve Damen’s customers worldwide.”

Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform also provides Damen Shipyards with a single digital environment that connects requirements, regulations and project planning with full traceability. Teams can capture and reuse existing data across all business units, quickly react to design changes, plan manufacturing early in the design process, and collaborate with suppliers to deliver ships on time and on budget.

“Competitive shipbuilders must explore new ways to leverage the advanced technologies that are defining a new era in shipbuilding and gain an edge in the industry,” said Alain Houard, vice president of Marine and Offshore Industry at Dassault Systèmes. “The 3DEXPERIENCE platform and our industry solution experiences transform shipbuilding practices to support strategic objectives. The digital management of complex projects, collaboration across multisite ecosystems, efficient production planning, and virtually exploring alternative design scenarios all impact the delivery of high quality vessels that meet – or better yet – exceed their customers’ expectations.”
