New Technologies for the Shipbuilding Industry


The University of New Orleans recently licensed two technologies developed in the College of Engineering to a Louisiana-based software development firm. SofTek Systems has signed a contract with the University’s Technology Transfer Office to promote and market two software applications – an Expert Environmental Management System (EMS) and a computer model Life Cycle Costing and Assessment for Shipyard Blasting and Painting. These two software applications will be available to the shipbuilders and repair yards on a fee-basis.

Expert Environmental Management System (EMS) for Shipyards is capable of calculating multimedia emissions based on the materials used and processes adopted using the built-in knowledge base. Also, it generates automated reports, Toxic Release Inventory, Air Emissions Inventory, Discharge Monitoring Reports, Hazardous Waste Reports, and others. It serves as a decision support system to identify cleaner alternatives, minimize multimedia emissions, and reduce environmental impact. This expert system also assists in tracking environmental performance and provides feedback for continuous improvement. Life Cycle Costing and Assessment for Shipyard Blasting and Painting: A Computer Model - This model calculates the life cycle costs associated with shipyard blasting and painting operations and assists shipyards in selection of alternative materials, equipment, and process conditions for Shipyard Blasting and Painting (direct, indirect, and societal costs associated with shipyard blasting and painting operations). Direct costs include, labor, materials, energy, and equipment costs; indirect costs include waste generation fees, waste handling fees, and waste disposal fees; and the societal costs include equivalent cost of the environmental impact/public health impact.
