Infographic shows benefits of switching to data-driven operations

Netherlands-based software company Shipbuilder has published an infographic that shows the most notable advantages of switching to data-driven operations for maritime companies.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} The infographic suggests ways to save time and money by implementing data-driven rather than document-driven operations. One benefit is that is can help companies to find the correct data quickly and reduce searching time from 30 to 5 per cent. With an Excel or Word file, there is no automatic tracking of multiple versions of a file in a circulation or company or no notification if part of the file has changed.  With data-driven operations, there is traceability of decisions.

According to the infographic, by working to real-time the quality of the data can be increased to the highest level. Shipbuilder states that a consistency increase of 30 per cent can be gained.

In addition, Shipbuilder believes that shorter lead times result in extra capacity and sales increase, while a 10 per cent margin increase due to fewer errors as a result of data-driven operations is possible.

“We have been active in the maritime sector for eight years now and help shipyards and yacht builders to digitally transform, from document-driven to data-driven,” said Geert Schouten, director of Shipbuilder. “For them this means making business future proof with the help of our knowledge based data management system. They turn away from keeping track of all data in email, Word or Excel or even odder, within binders. We have transformed our experience with the advantages of smart digital transformation into an infographic.

“Imagine you have to search for data hidden in binders for an average of three hours every day. And imagine that when you finally find the data, you have to ask yourself every time whether it’s the latest version of that information. Does that make you happy? Unfortunately, for many maritime engineers this is the tough, daily reality. The switch to the Shipbuilder smart data management program, provides them with a time saving factor of six. Now the search for the correct, up-to-date(!) information only takes half an hour a day. This means that throughout the day you will immediately find what you need. Throw your frustrations overboard and work with a smile!”  {/mprestriction}
