Frank Coles presents his THESIS

Transas CEO Frank Coles presents THESIS Transas CEO Frank Coles presents THESIS

Transas has launched a new navigation and ship operations concept called THESIS – Transas Harmonised Eco System of Integrated Solutions – which aims to create a common platform for collaboration between ships on navigation and operational issues.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new platform was announced at the company’s recent Simulation User Conference in Singapore by CEO Frank Coles.

“Ship, ship operations office, training facilities around the world, and a properly created ship traffic control environment can all be connected to the ecosystem, effectively a community that is able to talk to one another. This is THESIS,” said Mr Coles.

Mr Coles believes that ship operations are being bogged down by too many regulations and excessive data management requirements, and that the traditional hierarchy of ship roles has become outdated.

This attitude must change, he argues, and should also be accompanied by adjustments in training requirements to focus on cross discipline operations. THESIS is seen as part of this change of approach, with the aim of creating a single common platform for the exchange of navigational and operational information.

“In order to have a successful transition to the new reality, we should consider how to train the new team, the Fleet Resource Team, empower the master but also provide training on working together,” Mr Coles said.

“The law should not control the management of the ship, but fit with everyday practice in operations. Day to day fleet resource training should replace some of the bridge resource training. The Fleet Management ecosystem will reduce the administrative load on the ship.”

“THESIS is a flexible data resource, a scalable platform. The flexibility allows for data to be shared or kept private. The user can adopt all or only one part of the eco environment. In creating these solutions Transas will unite the global maritime stakeholders in the future of e-Navigation and operations.”{/mprestriction}

  • StratumFive launches collaborative workspace

    StratumFive has launched Podium, a collaborative workspace that connects applications, data, and people, across the maritime community.

    Podium connects any data source or third party application and integrates them within its timeline architecture. Users can quickly visualise correlated data streams in an agile dashboard environment, transforming operational decision-making, in a flexible and collaborative workspace.

    Powerful features and configurability allow users across an enterprise to easily build their own dashboards, customised data mapping, interactive displays and alerts, from any location. This enables owners, operators and managers to streamline and standardise the data they use, whilst reducing costs by discarding duplicate data sets.

    Podium ingests, unifies and visualises billions of data points and scales to accommodate user demands and data volumes, whilst maintaining complete consistency in terms of output for all users.

    In addition, the Podium partnership program will enable start-ups and existing digital providers to expand their maritime presence easily by accessing StratumFive’s global client base, data holdings and technical infrastructure.

    Podium launches with a series of in-house options including voyage monitoring, weather routing and StratumFive’s next generation compliance and tracking applications.

    “With many years spent in operations around the world, I have been frustrated by the inefficiencies and costs caused by poor data acquisition, processing and communication across applications and stakeholders,” said Mike Powell, strategy director, StratumFive.

    “Until now, digitalisation has often made things worse for people working on ships and at shore, as increasing enterprise-wide data and information demands require too much manual intervention and effort. Currently, high levels of activity do not always equal productivity.

    “Podium is designed to be the workspace for the whole enterprise, linking data and applications, ensuring all stakeholders not only start from the same page, but also have the tools they need to maximise the efficiency and value of their part of the voyage.”

    Ross Martin, COO, StratumFive, added: “It is true that shipping businesses globally are currently not reaping the promised rewards of digitalisation - but Podium provides the solution that our industry desperately needs to realise cost savings and other operational efficiencies.

    “A growing number of operators are laboriously gathering data from a number of silos and trying to make sense of it using generic ‘business intelligence’ tools. These tools do not offer the maritime domain specific functionality, nor the degree of automation required to make smarter operational decisions faster.”

    StratumFive consulted closely with the industry in the development of Podium. Major owners and operators are already using the platform across their daily operations, with reportedly more preparing to adopt the technology in the near future.
