Abstract:Due to ever growing competition in the shipbuilding industry and the current day economic environment Damen Shipyards is in search of cost saving and innovative solutions to prepare them for the future. In this assignment the process of developing and improving an Augmented Reality pipe fitting tool will be described. The pipe fitting tool is meant to digitalise the process of measuring measured pipe spools in vessels. Currently measured spools have to be manually measured and adjusted by form of trial and error to make them fit correctly. To make this task more efficient and less prone to human error the pipe fitting tool has been created. In this assignment previous work done has been analysed. The relevant stakeholders of the tool have been identified and the current process workflows have been mapped. The shortcomings and point of improvement of the tool have been found and described. By doing research into the technical possibilities and the requirements of the tool different implementation and development scenarios have been created. Using these scenarios a rough business case has been created and the impact on the current workflow could be described and visualised. Ultimately an advice on how to continue and which steps to take has been created. These things combined have been summarised in a roadmap for future development and implementation together with a design brief on where and how to start with the continuation of the project. This roadmap will guide Damen through the steps to take to develop the tool and presents the relevant stakeholders and decision makers for each step.
