Many shipyards wish to have PDM software at the heart of their product management. However, implementing PDM system sat shipyards has proven to be a challenging task in many cases. One of the main advantages of using PDM software in shipbuilding is that the data of previously engineered vessels can be used easily for new vessels. A challenge that these global operating shipbuilders face is that each shipyard has its own requirements for production documentation. This paper will show the vision of Nupas-Cadmatic; using ready-made “building blocks” to create interfaces between dedicated PDM and CAD systems and the eShare module to visually show information stored in multiple systems. These solutions allow the shipbuilding industry to create processes suitable to their requirements.
