Today’s maritime environment requires owners and operators to leverage operational data and advanced analytics like never before. Applying digital technologies and smart functionality can provide greater insights into asset condition, enabling more informed decisions that optimize maintenance activities and improve overall asset performance.

ABS recently issued a Guide for Smart Functions for Marine Vessels and Offshore Units (Smart Guide) to help guide marine and offshore applications of smart technology. The Smart Guide provides a logical goal-based approach to adding smart functionality to an asset enabling more data-driven decision making aligned with an owner or operator’s business objectives—laying the basis for improved asset OPEX as well as a more condition-based class approach. To support a streamlined integration of vendor products and services related to smart functionality, the Smart Guide lays out a Product Design Assessment scheme coupled with a Service Provider approval process to support equipment manufacturers, shipyards, owners as well as third party software providers, as they develop products and services for smart functionality.
