Its latest endeavors form the basis of what it describes as contemporary configuration engineering and management, and extend the role and business scope of a practitioner of the latest technology tools in marine design, engineering and production.
Armed with new methodologies and products, which offer a seamless link from the design and construction period into the post-delivery stages, Deltamarin is equipped to meet an emerging market requirement for cradle-to-grave techni- cal support, starting with the initial fea- sibility studies and extending through lifetime operation.
The company's first experience with a specific knowledge management system has encouraged Deltamarin to approach selected shipowner and shipyard clients with its proposed new type of service, dubbed knowledge management consul- tancy. The preliminary system has been used in connection with the design pro- ject for Tallink's 40,000-gt cruise ferry due for delivery next year from Aker
Deltamarin believes the concept could bring tremendous benefits to the indus- try at large, by providing an integrated, electronic model of the ship and its component parts that will assist post- delivery tasks relating to maintenance, technical procurement, refitting, repair and modification.
Pivotal to the envisioned tool is the 3-
D product model and core information structure laid down and continuously refined from the early design stages of a newbuild scheme. The model is a means of better ensuring the efficiency and reducing the complexity associated with shipbuilding projects, typically involv- ing large numbers of subcontractors. It contains all data relating to the build and outfit, including materials, structures, components and equipment, and pro- vides an integrated working platform which is continually refined and referred to by multiple users throughout the life of the project.
In essence, the latest initiative aims to tap the resource represented by the prod- uct model to the long-term benefit of the shipowner, by using the data store as the basis for an operational lifetime model that can be continually used and updated in parallel with ship maintenance, refur- bishment and modification in every shipboard technical discipline. It will provide a single, consistent source of integrated data containing the accumu- lated details of a ship and its through- life technical standing.
