The most effective way to guarantee that a project is optimised is to ensure that the engineering is conducted in the early stages. The last thing anyone wants is to turn up to a ship or project and there are problems, due to last minute engineering decisions. Understanding the importance of the early stages of engineering design will benefit any company and provide a lean working organisation. When MBM assist with the design and engineering, everything is systematically evaluated, analysed and the results are presented in a way, that allow all persons involved to have an understanding of the whole project.
MBM believe that early design engineering adds value to a project because it allows for:
- Early evaluation irradiates the possibility of future problems due to bad organisation
- Preliminary costs for materials and manufacture
- More time can be spent on finding solutions using the CAD and FEA software a lean design solution is produced
- More time can be spent designing a low-cost method, for manufacture, loading and transportation of cargoes
How can MBM achieve this?
MBM was tasked with the loading of a 500t crane that was driven on deck, using the analysis tools a lean solution was found. This was down to having a sufficient time period to evaluate all options.
