South Korea's Hyundai Heavy Industries successfully completed building Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) system.
Hyundai BS&C finished the project in cooperation with LG CNS, Siemens PLM Software and its subsidiary Hyundai BS&I in 18 months.
Hyundai's PLM Project which started in January, 2009, is Korean shipyards' the first and largest.
PLM system connected CAD and other technical data with Bill of Materials (BOM) and created integrated data management system.
With this new system, Hyundai will be able to manage supply integratively with BOM, automatize flow of engineering process and correct errors beforehand by sharing information on alteration in design engineering.
Thanks to PLM system, Hyundai is expected to minimize engineering process and realize a Virtual Digital Shipyard which creates the optimal shipbuilding environment, as well.
