DASSAULT SYSTEMES | November 29, 2022
Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: FR0014003TT8, DSY.PA) (Paris:DSY) today announced the signature of a Memorandum of Understanding with Samsung Heavy Industries, a global leader in the high-tech shipbuilding sector, to create a “smart yard” based on new digital transformation technology with the aim to establish a fully digital shipyard and a competitive edge.
The smart yard is designed to optimize the shipyard operations’ scheduling and execution as well as streamline and automate the flow of information required for construction, to accelerate production and assembly operations. Samsung Heavy Industries can better meet the booming demand for liquefied natural gas carriers by improving its capacity to produce them and shortening their delivery time.
By introducing model-based systems engineering, Samsung Heavy Industries can design more sophisticated and sustainable vessels requiring more automation, new systems and propulsions, and higher safety and control. MBSE, which is already a standard product development method in the transportation and mobility, aerospace, and high-tech industries, will enable Samsung Heavy Industries to strengthen its competitiveness in the ship development process and accelerate this process thanks to full traceability from concept to production.
“Automation systems are proven to greatly affect business efficiency across all industries. A smart yard in the shipbuilding industry will also help reduce construction costs and improve the quality of ships, We plan to accelerate innovation in shipbuilding.”
-Jung Nam Lee, DT Director, Samsung Heavy Industries.
The cooperation with the Smart SHI team of Samsung Heavy Industries will allow Dassault Systèmes to organize a consultative group for digital transformation to define and validate new processes and tools required to achieve the smart yard. This will involve Dassault Systèmes’ core technologies and experts from its local office and global headquarters.
Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform-based smart yard will support a unique digital thread integrating various data sources and real-time operations information. Connecting the virtual twins of ships and the virtual twin of the shipyard, automating and standardizing business processes with artificial intelligence, and optimizing planning and operations within the shipyard and with the supply chain will enable smart innovations for both production methods and production execution.
“It is essential for Korea’s shipbuilding to accelerate its transformation with new and advanced technologies that allow it to keep its leadership in productivity and quality for complex vessels, and we are proud to support SHI in this journey, Through our cooperation with Samsung Heavy Industries, we’re given an opportunity to introduce and implement our outstanding marine industry solution experiences, and achieve a new paradigm in the shipbuilding industry in Korea.”
-François-Xavier Dumez, Vice President, Marine & Offshore Industry, Dassault Systèmes.

Armstrong Steel | November 28, 2022
The demand for pre-engineered steel buildings is exploding, according to Armstrong Steel. Because of the many benefits that these pre-engineered buildings provide, new industries are turning toward this type of construction for their structure needs.
The recently released 2022 Pre-Engineered Buildings Global Market Report showed that the global steel market is expected to be worth $26.87 billion by 2026, which would represent a CAGR, or compound annual growth rate, of 11.98%.
Pre-engineered buildings have structural columns, rafters, girts, purlins and sheeting which are engineered and manufactured specific to each building purchased and then assembled on site per the erection drawings and all the parts are numbered to correspond with the drawings.
While pre-engineered steel buildings such as the ones manufactured by Armstrong Steel Buildings have been used extensively for workshops, storage, community halls, factories, airport hangars, strip malls and much, much more, they are also in high demand today for office buildings.
Pre-engineered steel buildings provide many benefits, including their flexibility in usage, the speed at which they are constructed, and their overall cost. It's only natural, then, that more and more industries are turning toward this type of structure for their building needs.
The increased demand for pre-engineered steel buildings in the office space market is a significant contributor to the market's expected growth as a whole. In many developing countries experiencing economic growth and rapid urbanization, these pre-engineered steel buildings are preferred because they are cost-effective and can be erected faster than traditional buildings.
The report also states that pre-engineered steel buildings make up anywhere from 75% to 80% of all new corporate and commercial construction. It's no surprise, then, that the industry is expected to experience explosive growth in 2023 and beyond.
One of the biggest trends in the steel building industry, according to Armstrong Steel Buildings, is the adoption of green building practices to positively impact climate change. Steel production has traditionally consumed a significant amount of energy and created a lot of emissions.
New technological advances are allowing steel manufacturing companies to not only reduce their energy consumption but also reduce their emissions at the same time.
Pre-engineered steel buildings are very eco-friendly, too. Armstrong Steel notes that steel itself is 100% recyclable and can be used multiple times over without compromising the integrity of the material. This is yet another reason why pre-engineered steel buildings are a smart investment for any company, organization, or individual who needs a new structure.
