Aras, the leader in open product lifecycle management (PLM) software for the enterprise, today announced that Marc Lind, SVP of Strategy at Aras, will discuss expectations versus reality for the Digital Thread in shipbuilding at PI Marine Hamburg 2019, taking place on January 24-25, 2019 in Hamburg, Germany.

The way manufacturers create, operate, and service products are shifting due to rapidly evolving technological trends. PI Marine is transforming shipbuilding through model-based digital integration and smart manufacturing. With this event dedicated to increasing productivity and efficiency across the ship design, planning and manufacturing processes, attendees will have the opportunity to meet and network with peers across industries and learn how others are leveraging digital assets to simulate entire systems.

Changes in the global maritime environments are intensifying competition and pressuring shipyards to modernize. To achieve better productivity, lead times and margins on increasingly complex programs require greater connectivity, collaboration, and traceability. In his presentation, “Digital Thread in Shipbuilding: Vision vs Reality,” Mr. Lind will discuss innovative Digital Thread approaches and offer examples of how companies have improved their processes. Attendees may join his presentation on January 25 at 12:10pm in Room 2.
