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}
