Abstract

The yacht lifecycle can be divided into several stages including inquiry, equipment acquirement, order, design, drawing, price quoting, contract signing, production, delivery, service, etc.. In the past, all design and manufacturing data about the yacht were distributed over each department; therefore, the data could not be searched and used easily. By the implementation of the product lifecycle management, a solution to integrate the exchanged data is proposed. In this research, we utilize UML to analyze and plan the architecture of the yacht product lifecycle. According to ISO 10303, the data from PLM can be exchanged in XML and STEPml. In the process, Workflow Engine triggers the Web Service to transmit the data from system to system. Through this procedure, the data exchange and information sharing in the entire processes can be coordinated. We construct a yacht lifecycle framework according to the result of the system analysis. Based on a yacht XML Schema, we use XML format in data exchange during the whole product lifecycle. After the entire procedure, an XML file which contains detailed information about this yacht is produced. Under such framework, we can keep detailed design and manufacturing information about this yacht. In the future, all these data can become the user manual and pass to the shipowner as the yacht delivered.
