This new contract will incorporate additional maintenance, services, consultancy, and development to further customise the AVEVA MARS system to Ingalls’ business processes.
Supplying US Naval and Coast Guard vessels, Ingalls has been an AVEVA MARS customer since 2006.
AVEVA MARS includes modules for Material, Planning and Production designed specifically for the shipbuilding industry.
“We have developed a good working relationship that is enabling us to develop enhancement solutions that benefit both HII and AVEVA,” said Mike Deutsch, Ingalls Shipbuilding eSHIPS director.
“One example is we were maintaining storeroom inventories in offline databases in order to manage operations. AVEVA helped us by developing a storeroom module for MARS that eliminated the offline databases and achieved greater visibility of material availability, and improved communication between departments.”
“I am confident the new enhancements AVEVA is delivering this year will help to make our operation even more successful.”
