Shipyards in Europe cannot compete on price alone against overseas competitors, especially those who have the benefit of lower labour costs. Therefore, European ship builders need to concentrate on high-quality construction projects that need a highly skilled workforce and are specially tailored to the requirements of their customers. Consequently each ship is a unique product, produced only once or in a very small type series. To improve their competitive position, it is essential for modern shipyards to be able to harness the most advanced simulation and design tools to produce complex structures cost effectively. The objective is to recognize and reduce the technical and economical risks that are implicit in large and complex ship building projects. The vision is the complete virtual design and build of a ship.
