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. 

Join Denis Morais as he presents on this concept to industry leaders at the ShipTech Forum in Ottawa this February.
