EMEC will participate in EUROMIND workshop to be held in Hamburg on Sept. 23, during SMM.
The shipbuilding industry is characterised by intensive cooperation between different actors (shipbuilders, suppliers, classification societies and other) and the increasing demand of working in highly flexible networks, with often changing project constellations. The intensive cooperation is apparent in all phases of shipbuilding projects from conception, design to production of the ship until end of life.
Leading Edge Shipbuilding Production is aiming at the integration of latest developments in ICT and logistics in the local and distributed shipbuilding process. Without INTEROPERABILITY of ICT systems, which require standards and compatibility between standards, advanced forms of E-business are impossible. Real progress towards reducing production cost and lead time depends on a deeper understanding of the integration of internal processes and those of suppliers into an “integrated production system”.
The EUROMIND network, a project funded by the European Commission, defined a generic highly flexible reference standard through a pragmatic bottom-up approach by borrowing and learning from standards that are best in their field and extending these for the use in the maritime industry.
The EUROMIND consortium will present its results during a special event at the SMM Fair, organised by VSM in Hamburg. You are kindly invited to attend the workshop on 23 September, starting with a walk-in session and continuing with a workshop in the afternoon with guest speakers from the European Commission, the Industry and European associations.
