Systems engineering brings structure, discipline and teamwork to any large project and has an increasingly valuable part to play in naval architecture and marine engineering design.
The prompt delivery of high quality ship and offshore asset designs is made possible by ever more advanced design methods but also poses major challenges as management teams try to balance capability and cost across global markets.
The many risks and interdependencies are best addressed within systems engineering structure that brings together all the disciplines involved and represents a single unified view of the project. Whether the emphasis is on project management, operations, structural design, equipment configurations or environmental sustainability, the many variables can be captured within a coherent framework that is readily understood by everybody involved.
Based on a sound understanding of the original requirements, multiple concepts can be developed with lifecycle management, safety and environmental issues fully integrated from the start.
The Conference will showcase how Systems Engineering principles can make best possible use of the available skills, technologies and tools available to the marine industry as it faces up to the challenges of present and future markets.
RINA invites papers from those in the marine industry with a systems engineering perspective on the efficiency of their design processes and the sustainability of future assets.
