The Virtual Shipyard Program has provided us with a valuable insight into Australia’s future Naval digital environment. The tools and learnings have further allowed us to transfer this capability to our traditional customers in other industry sectors.
As a result of the Virtual Shipyard program B&R Enclosures have been able to develop a “2020 Industry 4.0 Road Map”. This will enable B&R Enclosures to meet customer needs faster, at lower costs and a higher quality.
As a direct result of the learnings of the Virtual Shipyard program and utilising the Dassault 3DS tools, we have been able to create a digital supply chain integration, gaining design efficiencies and eliminating the possibilities of transcription errors, resulting in a quicker time-to-market for our products.
The VSP has given our business a fantastic insight in to the production and information flows of the future and Industry 4.0. This sets a fantastic platform for establishing our business as a professional business capable of supplying sheet metal product and services around the globe.
The Virtual Shipyard has been one of the most useful government programs that has not only introduced us to new advanced technologies, but also opened many doors to national and international markets.
