Description: A major transformation is underway in the marine sector, as fleet operators need to develop more energy-efficient, reliable and environmental-friendly ships with better overall performance and lower total operating costs. In order for shipbuilders to meet this demand before the window of opportunity closes, they will have to design and build ships faster and better than ever before. This will require a completely different approach to ship design and construction. 'Future Fleet' is the Siemens PLM Software perspective on how leading shipbuilders are designing and building ships to meet the expected increase in demand from owners looking to rapidly modernise their fleets. The Siemens Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) for Shipbuilding solution enables a holistic approach to shipbuilding that improves total enterprise collaboration, synchronisation and productivity, as well as lifecycle ship service and support, by optimising ship design and shipbuilding processes.
