Mazagon Dock – First Indian Shipyard
to introduce Augmented Reality

This has helped reduce timelines for finalising approvals

October 19, 2022

DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES has tremendous capabilities in eliminating unnecessary rework, as well as improving the delivery timelines and quality of construction of Naval Vessels. Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Ltd (MDL) has been a thought leader in incorporating digital technologies as part of its Industry 4.0 Initiatives. MDL was the first Shipbuilder in India, to introduce the use of Virtual Reality (VR) for ship design reviews and approvals by the Navy. This alone has helped reduce timelines for finalizing approvals of design by almost 2-3 years for every project 

“The use of Industry 4.0 technologies like Augmented Reality (AR) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are a game changer. We can now provide access to 3D design models to production and inspection teams working on the actual vessel. It enables them to see each and every inch of design details in 1:1 scale by super imposing the model data on the physical ship.”

The advantages are very clear. With the digital model on the shop floor, you eliminate communication gaps between production teams and design teams as well as our valued customers.

There is also no risk of production teams using outdated drawings, which was typical when they used paper drawings. The technology is ground breaking and cost effective since it is based on Commercial of the Shelf (COTS) handheld technology.

“We are proud to inform that the complete technology has been developed indigenously as part of the PM’s Atmanirbhar Bharat and Digital India initiatives.”

To give users the actual experience, the demo is displayed at MDL Stall at DefExpo 2022.
