General Dynamics Electric Boat
Aurora is being leveraged by General Dynamics Electric Boat (EB) for the scheduling of various aspects of submarine construction. With this, EB is provided with intelligent scheduling capabilities not available in other project management software. The AI-based systems streamline EB’s large-scale production scheduling. Production tasks are prioritized by balancing resource capacities with manufacturing requirements and constraints. The result is a dynamic schedule that adapts to real-time production variability, as well as the injection of unexpected new work. This allows EB to execute the plan as efficiently as possible.
The submarine has long been the silent backbone of United States Naval supremacy. For more than 100 years, Electric Boat has designed and built these incredible machines. Electric Boat is the designer and prime contractor for the Virginia-class submarine program. The Virginia class is the first major warship completely designed in a virtual environment, a capability pioneered by the people of Electric Boat. Through Aurora, construction schedules are shortened and costs reduced for each these submarines.
