Around 90% of world trade is conducted via waterways. Coupled with aquaculture, offshore industrial, and maritime leisure activities, this makes the marine sector a substantial part of the global economy. Shipbuilding and other marine industrial solutions are increasing in relevance as waterways are by far the most economical mode of transport. Global calls for a rapid shift towards sustainability, complexifying supply chains and technological innovations are presenting both challenges as well as opportunities for marine industry manufacturers, who now face a heightened need to further increase operational efficiencies.
Marine conditions necessitate a high degree of quality, accuracy, and compliance when it comes to shipbuilding. Constructing water vessels and other maritime products often means handling innumerable parts, investing heavily in the workforce, and needing to meet an array of compliance requirements. A comprehensive and unified manufacturing system is an absolute prerequisite for ensuring an efficient marine manufacturing operation.
