ABS adds Smart Function Implementation guidelines

Classification society ABS has released a new guidance document providing a goal-based framework to enable data-driven decision making based on smart technology in the marine and offshore industries.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The ABS Guidance Notes on Smart Function Implementation aim to support data infrastructure development that can underpin more informed decisions. The guidance sets an actionable framework for owners, operators and equipment manufacturers to make operations more efficient.

“Spurred by increases in connectivity, sensors and data processing, the marine and offshore industries continue to evolve digitally at a very rapid rate while facing increased regulatory challenges,” said ABS chairman, president and CEO, Christopher Wiernicki.

“As we embark on the journey from smart to semi-autonomous to autonomous, ABS is leading the industry by connecting the smart journey with sustainability.”

“We created this guidance to provide industry with a goal-based approach framed around increased asset health awareness, vessel performance optimisation and crew assistance and augmentation, all of which when approached in a smart manner lead to industry sustainability.”

The Guidance Notes form part of an ABS Smart Series, and will be followed by an actionable guide designed to improve data acquisition, processing and analysis, and the basis for a more condition-based class approach.{/mprestriction}
