DSME press release
This will improve the competitiveness in winning contracts as DSME could provide customer-oriented comprehensive solutions in production.
DSME developed the DW-3000F surface ship MR system, which is a naval integrated platform based on the combination of AR and VR.
This MR system developed for the purpose of virtually experiencing all necessary steps to acquire a ship in the same situation of ships, including marketing, planning, construction, maintenance, crew education and training.
People are able to choose virtual ships’ specifications that they want on a tablet during a meeting, such as applicable weapon systems and other details. Also, engine equipments for ships can be chosen in the same way, even enabling users to virtually board a ship to easily learn onboard naval systems’ functions and check-up procedures, which satisfied potential contractors.
This MR system could be used in shipyards by planners and engineers, according to the DSME. The system is expected to increase productivity, by providing them with basic information on a ship that they build, how to build it, use equipments and conduct maintenance. DSME especially expects to reduce shipbuilding costs as the MR system could prevent repetitive problems in the shipbuilding process and negligent accidents.
A person in charge of the development of the platform at DSME told,
“MR platform will significantly raise DSME’s competitiveness amidst its digital transformation. I expect this to be our basis for finding new added values and marketing competitiveness, since the digital platform-based integrated solution is applicable to all necessary steps such as shipbuilding, operation, marketing, etc.”
DSME completed its application for a patent of this platform last September, with the pending registration. DSME also plans to apply the technology to other commercial ships.
