28 - 29 March 2012, London, UK
Following on from the success of the first RINA international conference on the use and application of systems engineering techniques and processes for marine and offshore design projects, we are organising a second international conference.
What was once a niche job in the aerospce and defence industries is becoming common place among a diverse and expanding range of industries. As products and businesses become ever more complex, involving many different technologies and disciplines spread across different geographical locations, there is a growing demand for systems engineers to take the wider holistic view, to work with the specialists to ensure that the customers needs are met.
The prompt delivery of high quality complex ship, marine and offshore systems is made possible by ever more advanced design methods but this also poses major challenges as management teams try to balance capability and cost across global markets. The many risks and interdependencies are best addressed within a systems engineering structure that brings together all the disciplines involved and represents a single unified view of the project. Based on a sound understanding of the original requirements, multiple concepts can be developed with lifecycle management, safety and environmental issues fully integrated from the start.
RINA invites papers from those in the marine and offshore industry with a systems engineering perspective on the efficiency of their design processes and the sustainability of future assets.
