Bureau Veritas launches Optimum Survey Planning

OSP aims to help improve the delivery of surveys OSP aims to help improve the delivery of surveys

Bureau Veritas has launched digital platform ‘Optimum Survey Planning (OSP)’ following trials with shipowners and managers, which sought to improve the delivery of the right survey at the right time.  

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new application moves planning of surveys from a reactive to a proactive approach, providing a recommendation of the most convenient date and place to perform the needed surveys. This increases efficiency and convenience for the managers of ships requiring surveys – saving time, money and reducing any impact on ship operations.

The application is embedded within VeriStar Info, BV’s client portal, and is available on both desktop and mobile versions. 

The benefits of OSP include:

  • Proactive notification of optimised survey times and locations to ensure that the proposal includes availability of appropriate surveyor expertise where and when needed
  • An optimised survey and audit scope proposal
  • Visibility on the status of the request at any time, until the report is available
  • Additional information on the ports, including information on BV approved service suppliers in each port thanks to the direct link with the BV application, Approval Explorer

The new application provides real data of test completion evidence, rather than just photographs and video recordings.

The anticipated next steps as the DP Digital Survey tool evolves will include: increased automation of the survey process; improvements in the survey process; and the ability to establish a continuous DP survey framework allowing detailed, and continual, remote monitoring.

Bureau Veritas is working with CLS, a subsidiary of the French Space Agency (CNES), to forecast the ship routes as an alternative to manual ship route booking by the client itself, making the process even more efficient.

‘This is not just about putting survey bookings online, this is about improving our services and making the classification experience easier with visibility, flexibility and control. We are continuing to work with leading technology partners, in this case CLS, to help us deliver leading solutions,” said Laurent Hentges, Bureau Veritas vice-president operational excellence.{/mprestriction}
