In shipbuilding process, design information is generated in each phase to shape products and operations. For each process the design activities are carried out with a high level of concurrency supported by various computer software systems, though quality of products and efficiency of the concurrent development process highly depend on experiences and insights of skilled experts. The detailed design information is difficult to be shared and design conflicts are solved in a common effort by design engineers in downstream design stages. Data sharing across design sections and simulation of the construction process to predict time and cost are the key factors for concurrent engineering in shipbuilding industry. The concurrent engineering process in shipbuilding will be getting more and more accurate and efficient along with the accumulated design knowledge and simulation results. This paper reviews shipbuilding product creation process and demonstrates practical usage through typical, comprehensive use cases from design and manufacturing.
