A platform-of-platforms framework, combined with a connected and programmable digital twin, allows for vessel owners and operators to manage existing and future ships with a single, unified, digital-first approach.
Merging the different worlds of digital and non-digital ships within a single strategy necessitates accepting and leveraging new digital information from future vessels, while simultaneously taking advantage of limited or non-existent data from existing ships.
The information that does exist is currently housed across many organizations and platforms, but most importantly it is not linked together. As a result, significant manual effort is required to make it usable – increasing the time it takes to make decisions and reducing the quality of the ones that do get made.
When combined with a collaborative visual and connected digital twin, this platform-of-platforms structure allows for information on any vessel from any source to become dynamically linked together, feed any department, and be re-used throughout the lifecycle. Bridging the gap between digital and non-digital ships in this way minimizes manual effort, fosters better decision making, and reduces overall lifetime vessel costs.
