ABS and Samsung collaborate on digital tech development

ABS and Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) have announced a collaboration on the use of digital technologies to streamline designing, building, and classing assets.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} As part of the joint development project (JDP) 3D digital disclosure, data exchange, and the use of analytics will support the new construction process and pilot the survey of the future.

The JDP is focused on three areas:

  • Piloting 3D Model Based Plan review
  • Developing a utility to import data from the SHI CAD system into ABS Engineering Software
  • Piloting the use of artificial intelligence to supplement traditional non-destructive testing in the shipbuilding process.

“Data and digitalisation are revolutionising the marine and offshore industries. This JDP is further evidence of how ABS is leading the way and working with innovative partners such as SHI to shape the future of our industry,” said Patrick Ryan, ABS senior vice president, engineering and technology. “ABS is committed to realising the potential benefits of these technologies for members and clients while advancing safety at sea.”

"We have been leading digital innovation from design to production in order to adapt to the fourth industrial revolution and to ensure continued competitiveness," said Jong H Youn, vice president of SHI. “We expect this JDP with ABS will be a great opportunity to advance innovative certification and inspection." {/mprestriction}

  • ABS launches eLearning training platform

    Computer based training delivers cost-effective solution to augment classroom training and promote continuous learning across industrial practice areas

    ABS Group of Companies has launched an eLearning training platform to provide state-of-the-art educational tools and offer a robust catalogue of professional training courses to technical personnel worldwide.

    The new training solution will feature on-demand courses to augment classroom training in the practice areas of Cybersecurity, Risk Management, Asset Reliability, Compliance Management and Process Safety, and to support excellence in organisational performance.

    "For decades ABS Group has provided world-class training services, administering the highest standards of education and consulting to thousands of professionals in the U.S. and internationally," said Michael Harrington, director of ABS Group Training. "These same award-winning subject matter experts who have been recognised for their contributions to multidisciplinary engineering fields are now sharing technical and regulatory expertise for training at your pace, anytime, anywhere."

    Several eLearning courses are specialised to industry’s most pressing operational challenges. The first phase of e-courses focuses on Cybersecurity as an operational imperative and include Business Cybersecurity courses and a Maritime Cybersecurity course. Additional e-courses will focus on Reliability Management and Reliability Centred Maintenance. The e-courses to follow will be tailored to safety, risk and compliance management topics ranging from Root Cause Analysis (RCA), ISO Concepts, Safety Management, Quality, Environment, Risk Management Standards, Process Hazard Analysis (PHA), Process Safety Management (PSM), Enterprise Risk Management (ERM), Management of Change (MOC) and International and Offshore Oil and Gas Regulations and Standards.

    All e-course materials are introductory, with the option of customisation for advanced or industry specific training. Accompanying training solutions are available such as public and private instructor led classroom training. The eLearning training platform will also host a range of learning products, including books, reference materials and Root Cause Maps.

  • 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.
