Developing Smart Technologies for Productivity Improvement of European Small and Medium Sized Shipyards
Do these challenges sound familiar to you?
  • Your investments in modern facilities are insufficient because of limited financial capacities and reserves
  • Single purpose automation has often a low economic feasibility because of lacking economy of scale in production
  • Your product design is less fit for production because of partly or complete outsourcing the design activities
  • The use of innovative technologies and activities in research and development has a low ability because of limited personnel resources, lacking skills of the personnel and limited access to information and cooperation networks

The SMARTYards-Network has the solution!
