GL Accelerates Plan Approval for Newbuildings

Thursday, February 03, 2005
With the new Internet platform "global exchange", or "globe" for short, a new era has dawned: the paperless exchange of shipbuilding plans and design drawings between Germanischer Lloyd and the yards, engine manufacturers and suppliers. For a typical newbuilding, as many as 1,500 design drawings are examined by Germanischer Lloyd.

The high order level for newbuildings and the ever shorter building times at the yards call for faster planning and operational sequences, even in the preproduction phase. By shifting the data exchange process from "snail mail" to Internet, the necessary effort is minimized, with added savings in time. What is more, the digital interchange of approved drawings via the Internet ensures that all the participants are brought up to date immediately.

The documents of the ships, engines or components to be approved, as well as the associated test reports and certificates, are exchanged in the PDF format between the yard or manufacturer and Germanischer Lloyd. "globe" functions without any need for special software, because the portal can be reached via a standard web browser. However, the security of the digital interchange procedure is safeguarded by the SSL method. Access is protected by password. On request, customers can obtain an extra degree of security by using the RSA Token system, which generates new six-digit codes every minute and thus, in conjunction with a PIN, creates a constantly changing password.

The basic version of the new service (without RSA) is offered free of charge. globe can be ordered directly under: www.gl-group.com/globe
