The shipbuilding industry, a KRW 100 trillion market, has stalled at the moment due to the economic downturn, but shipbuilding is reaching the full potential of its market with developing countries in the lead, thus increasing the competition day by day. China, in particular, with their government support and price competitiveness, has grown to be top of the league with the largest contract value in the world shipbuilding industry.

With this situation, advanced countries have been changing their portfolios from building general vessels to building high-value added vessels while seeking ways to reduce manufacturing costs to improve their competitiveness. Meanwhile, faced with stricter vessel safety requirements such as vessel safety regulations and standardization of electrical maritime navigation system, the industry is in dire need for technical methods to deal with vessel safety management. On top of that, the related regulations and activities have expanded with increased worldwide interest on environment. As a result, companies are pressed to use energy saving materials for shipbuilding and cope with the environmental regulations on greenhouse gas emissions.
To efficiently deal with the enforced regulations while maintaining competitiveness, companies need to acquire differentiated technical capabilities by converting IT into their manufacturing activities. Based on technical capabilities and long experience in the manufacturing industry, LG CNS provides the optimal solution to improve your competitiveness in the shipbuilding industry.

Key Questions for Shipbuilding Industry

Question 1
What kind of features does LG CNS's integrated system offer for a company to achieve shipbuilding competitiveness?

We provide an internal integrated system that monitors and optimizes the work processes in the shipyard to improve work efficiency and also provides an external integrated system to link other related companies and organizations to the shipyard to increase collaboration. Closely working with external partners is very important in shipbuilding that involves various materials and complicated work processes, so it is hard to achieve overall competitiveness just by enhancing the internal systems. Therefore, LG CNS provides a system that can integrate both internal and external systems based on our operational experience in integrating the systems for large-scale factories.

Question 2
What kind of features does the shipbuilding PLM system offer?

The main features the PLM system that LG CNS provides are as follows.

  1. 1.Quantity information management : It provides initial designing services including creation of a standard master BOM for each vessel type, efficient operations of the BOMs, and creating BOMs for each purpose. It also provides the foundation for actual budget estimation and project process design.
  2. 2.Drawing/Document management : It provides features to create, edit, and search drawings, documents, and NC data through the PLM system, and provides a convenient work environment in tandem with CAD/electronic approval.
  3. 3.Design schedule management : Unlike a conventional work environment where workers have to search for a task, it brings tasks to workers through a work portal based on the processes of the company and links the tasks with related systems so that the workers can do all tasks at one sitting.
  4. 4.Design information management : It forwards the requirements on a product from all the concerned such as ship owner, onboard crew, government agency, and production engineer to the design department, and manages the change history. It improves development productivity by efficiently integrating the requirements, information, and legacy systems such as estimate system, ERP, BOM, and Spec.
  5. 5.Design change management : It allows accumulation of technologies by allowing design change information sharing and increasing work accuracy through establishing a design change management system.
  6. 6.Collaboration design : It allows efficient collaboration in designing across departments, ship owner/onboard crew, subcontractors and contractors. It also provides virtual conference rooms to maximize work efficiency.
  7. 7.Design editing : It improves work efficiency by providing features to create and compare performance data through managing the master system for standard items and standard BOMs.
  8. 8. Vessel post production management : It maximizes post production management of a vessel through electronic document management of drawings and purposes of the delivered vessel, service schedule and history management, and equipment composition management.
