A MORE USER FRIENDLY APPROACH FOR USING CAD AND PLM INTEGRATIONS
R Penas and R Perez-Fernandez, SENER Ingeniería y Sistemas S.A., Spain
In recent years, the integration capability between CAD and PLM systems has become a key functionality to ensure productivity in ship design and construction, to guarantee an optimal quality, reduce design errors, enable the appropriate digitalization processes and allow consuming CAD generated data along the whole ship life cycle.
However, many different approaches have been adopted by the largest shipyards to implement this feature, from the simple export/import based processes, through gateway functionalities, and up to a full bidirectional real-time integration.
But now, we are presenting a step beyond, which is the interoperability between both worlds: CAD and PLM. The current paper describes some of the most recent capabilities being introduced, by means of having a really user friendly handing of data between them.
HOW TO ACHIEVE AND MAINTAIN IHM COMPLIANCE WITH SHIP RECYCLING REGULATIONS
J Ren, MARITEC PTE LTD, Singapore
Hazardous Materials that may exist onboard ships (as part of their fixed structure or machinery), are listed within the Hong Kong Convention for the safe and environmentally sound recycling of ships 2009 and associated circulars, also within the Annexes of Regulation (EU) 1257/2013 of the European Parliament-Council on ship recycling. Also listed are threshold values i.e., the concentration in homogeneous materials that make a material hazardous.
The regulations require that (a) such materials are identified and inventoried (b) kept track of during the lifetime of the ship, (c) asbestos found onboard ships built after 2002 be removed within a stipulated period and (d) when a ship is recycled, the recycling process is done in a safe and environmentally considerate manner, all hazardous materials are taken off systematically and disposed so as to not endanger living organisms or cause environmental pollution. In this paper we will discuss the above processes.
IMPROVING ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT AND REFINING FLEET RELIABILITY THROUGH THE USE A RELIABILITY CENTRED MAINTENANCE PROCESS TO IMPROVE MAINTENANCE OF THE VESSEL FLEET OF THE MALDIVES TRANSPORT AND CONTRACTING COMPANY PLC
I Ridley, University of Sunderland, UK
In the current world economic situation, fleet operators are striving more than ever to ensure their fleet delivers the best possible return. An important aspect of delivering the best possible return is by ensuring the highest possible fleet availability.
A prime mover in ensuring fleet availability is an up to date, appropriate and cost effective maintenance regime. Such a maintenance regime can help to ensure that vessel down time is kept to a minimum so as to ensure maximum revenue generation.
Utilising a Reliability Centred Maintenance Process to review an organisation’s various maintenance regimes and breakdowns/failures will help to ensure that wherever possible the most appropriate and cost effective maintenance regimes are applied.
This paper looks at aspects of the Reliability Centred Maintenance Process and then explores the challenges of applying such a process to an actual fleet of vessels. It discusses how appropriate data is obtained and then how that data can be used to develop an improved and appropriate maintenance regime throughout a fleet of varying vessel types.
This study is based on work carried out by the Maldives Transport and Contracting Company Plc. (MTCC) and how Reliability Centred Maintenance Process could be used to improve availability and reliability of the varied fleet of ferries and other vessels. The ferry services provided by MTCC connects 85% of the population of the Maldives and so it is vital service to the majority of the country’s population and hence the importance of this study.
