ABS, SHI Sign Digital Technology JDP
ABS and Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) are to collaborate on the use of digital technologies to streamline designing, building, and classing assets in a joint development project (JDP) signed at Gastech 2019.
The JDP encompasses 3D digital disclosure, data exchange, and the use of analytics to 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.
It’s the second JDP with SHI that ABS has announced during Gastech. The first being a project to develop a next generation LNG carrier design with advanced air lubrication and smart capabilities.
