ASTM Committee Discusses Future Marine Technology

ASTM F-25 recently held its seminar "Shipbuilding in the 21st Century." Topics discussed included "Virtual Shipyard: A 21st-Century Imperative;" "Open Top Container Ships: A 21st Century Opportunity;" "Maritime Regulatory Reform: Compliance Options for the 21st Century, A Status Report;" and "ASTM F-25/ISO TC-8 Standards Partnership: A 21st Century Necessity." The concept of the Virtual Shipyard was laid out, and it was discussed how modular construction techniques, with subassemblies from a variety of sources, is a new way of doing business which could lead to the capturing of emerging markets and competing in a global economy. The seminar "Shipbuilding in the 21st Century" is the third in a series of information exchanges sponsored by F-25 Committee on Ships and Marine Technology.

The first was "ISO 9000 in the Shipbuilding Industry," the second was "Protection of the Marine Environment: A Global Priority." A fourth seminar is scheduled for the F-25 Montreal meeting on May 18, 1994, at the Queen Elizabeth II Hotel. The theme is "Export Strategy and the Standards Contribution."
