While leading companies in the manufacturing industry are doing their best to implement smart factories along with the wave of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, shipbuilding companies still seem to be a bit distant from the smart factories, due to the characteristics of the industry. In this study, smart shipbuilding platform is defined by studying the necessary elements for realizing smart shipyard in shipbuilding industry, and a forming shop is presented as an example to which the smart shipyard platform is realized and applied. To this end, the purpose of implementing the smart shipyard is discussed first and then the factors necessary to achieve the purpose are identified. These elements are grouped together into one system with the computational shipyard dynamics to define the smart shipyard platform. The platform is then applied to an actual factory of a shipyard to verify its effectiveness.
