SVIS 2.0

Ship vetting company RightShip has chosen IBM’s predictive analytics to upgrade its online risk management system SVIS (Ship Vetting Information System). SVIS 2.0 will be launched in the first quarter of 2014.

It will be powered by IBM’s Cognos Business Intelligence and SPSS Predictive Analytics software. And it will be designed and optimised for smartphones and tablets.

RightShip’s CEO Warwick Norman said: “Risk management in the maritime industry is paramount. In today’s business environment, marine industry operators must be able to efficiently and cost effectively assess the suitability of a nominated vessel. RightShip is the first vetting company to harness the power of Big Data and predictive analytics will bring a new dimension to our risk management system, including deeper and exciting customer insights."

“The system will allow RightShip to better target substandard performance and forecast risk dynamically in response to changing factors and with much greater accuracy.”

Mr Norman added: “Charterers will be better able to predict a vessel’s performance, while seamlessly considering emerging risk factors. A terminal will benefit from a more bespoke service and ensure physical vessel fit. A ship owner can benchmark its fleet in real time with tremendous accuracy and access more insightful measurement techniques. Banks and insurers can integrate our data with in-house systems to more precisely quantify risk.”

Alan Morgan, Business Analytics Software sales manager at IBM Australia, said: "In order to continue to be an industry leader in maritime risk and safety, RightShip was looking to transform their systems to deliver greater information access to its customers, enhancing their level of service. IBM's expertise in business analytics is a key component of that vision. The integrated IBM solution offers RightShip an agile, scalable and flexible means through which a smarter analytics approach can assist them in their on-going growth as a leader in the maritime industry.”

The project will be led by Bryan Guenther, who joined RightShip in February 2013 and was responsible for the design, development and implementation of BP Shipping’s vetting system called iMAS.

  • RightShip launches new Safety Score

    Maritime risk management and environmental assessment organisation RightShip has launched a new Safety Score to improve safety and risk management in the maritime industry. The Safety Score was launched in response to industry demand for more transparent methods of assessing vessels.

    RightShip has spent the last two years working in collaboration with stakeholders from across the shipping industry to develop the new Safety Score, which provides a metric that is explainable, transparent and only includes factors which are in the control of the operator, to help support improved safety across the entire maritime sector.

    The Safety Score will be housed on the new RightShip Platform, which will replace the current platform Qi as well as the predictive Risk Rating once the Safety Score goes live. The announcement is being made before its formal launch in September 2020, to provide the maritime industry with a period of time to prepare for the switch over.

    RightShip’s previous Risk Rating predicted the likelihood of a vessel having an incident across the next 12 months. The new Safety Score focuses on providing the operational performance at the vessel, DOC holder, flag and class level.

    The Safety Score uses a refined methodology that analyses the severity of any previous incidents, the frequency of incidents and any previously identified detentions and deficiencies for a given vessel. The new score also takes account of the proactivity of owners, operators and managers in managing safety and risk, by looking at their responsiveness to incidents, deficiencies or detentions. This, in turn, helps to provide a clear, identifiable path towards improving safety standards and processes.

    It creates a level playing field for all vessels on the water, regardless of type, size, age or builder, allowing industry participants to benchmark their safety procedures against the sector’s best performers. It is intended to help users gain an initial perspective on the operational performance of a potential charter, and to encourage shipowners to invest in improved processes and technologies that make the entire supply chain safer.

    Martin Crawford-Brunt, CEO at RightShip, said: “Since 2001, RightShip’s mission has been to help improve safety across our industry. An important element of this mission has been to ensure that we provide the market with the tools that ultimately help to underpin that pursuit of continuous improvement. Our new Safety Score recognises considerable industry feedback calling for greater transparency and control of ratings, and is the result of widespread collaboration with owners, operators, managers, charterers and others across this global industry.

    “We have created a balanced score which can be used by all members of the supply chain. For our due diligence customers, it provides a clearer insight to the operational performance of a vessel and DOC holder. The Safety Score is an indicator designed to be used as one of many factors in the due diligence process. Coupled with maritime expertise, it allows for the assessment of a nominated vessel and the provision of a vetting recommendation for a charterer.

    “For the shipowning community, the new Safety Score takes into account management performance and approach, giving owners a true understanding into how they can improve safety across multiple parameters. It also encourages shipowners to invest in system improvement, processes and technologies that make the entire supply chain safer.

    “We believe that this will support improving wider safety standards across the industry and drive a new conversation within shipping about how we manage risk whilst safeguarding our operations, which is particularly important in our current environment.”

    Over the coming months, RightShip is providing a range of resources to support the launch of the new Safety Score and facilitate the transition. These include educational webinars and a dedicated resource page at comingsoon.RightShip.com.
