Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) is accelerating its transition to a 'Smart shipyard' using Digital Transformation (DT) technology.Â
SHIÂ said onÂ Â 2 that it will develop and apply a data-basedÂ 'Company-wideÂ Integrated Monitoring System (SYARD)' that can check and control all information generated in the entire shipbuilding process (EPC;Engineering, Procurement, Construction).
SYARD is a businessÂ management system with a Business Intelligence platform that can make structured Â· unstructured data Big data using IoT and AI, and provide it in real timeÂ via visualizing connected and analyzed information.Â Â
SYARD helps make optimal decision based on data, so that resources including manpower, materials and energy can be managed efficiently. It also reduces lead time and identifies risk factors in advance to eliminate them.Â Â
Â SHI has beenÂ promoting smartization in all areas including production, design, and work since 2019 toÂ transform the labor-intensive shipbuilding industry into aÂ technology-intensive industryÂ which isÂ platform-based and highly efficientÂ byÂ applyingÂ DT technologyÂ toÂ rapidly changingÂ business environmentsÂ such as the 4th Industrial Revolution and manpower shortage.
SHI hasÂ developedÂ and used Ã¢â€“Â³metaverse-based remote quality inspection platform Ã¢â€“Â³ChatBot Ã¢â€“Â³a systemÂ withÂ 3D modeling andÂ digital twin technology.Â
SHI plans to achieve '10% improvement in total cost' within 23 years and expand smart technologiesÂ toÂ classification society,Â partners, and customers by 2025 to build a 'smart ecosystem' throughout the supply chain.Â Â
"Establishing SYARD helpsÂ lay the foundation forÂ transforming into a platform business using big data in the shipbuilding industry. We will continue to make efforts to complete smart shipyards using our differentiated DT technology" saidÂ Lee Joong-nam, leader of Smart shipyard at SHI.
