The shipbuilding industry is, to this day, largely paper based in its operations.

Meaning textual files, spreadsheets and siloed databases are used, which makes data not suitable for computation and integrating of systems throughout a vessel’s life-cycle nearly impossible.

The biggest drivers for change are

The need for operational efficiency due to a shortage of skilled workforce

Industry 4.0 requires smarter use of data and automation

Digitizing knowledge to counter outflux of an aging workforce


Semmtech helps clients in the shipbuilding industry on all levels, from application management on projects to digital transformations and software landscape integrations. For example in yachting, defense and with development of large one-off projects.
