Classification society ABS and South Korean shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) have signed a joint development project (JDP) which will see the two sides use digital technologies to streamline the designing, building, and classing of assets.

The JDP encompasses 3D digital disclosure, data exchange, and the use of analytics to support the new construction process and pilot the survey of the future.

“We have been leading digital innovation from design to production in order to adapt to the fourth industrial revolution and to ensure continued competitiveness,” Jong H Youn, Vice President of SHI, said, adding that the JDP could be an opportunity for the company to advance innovative certification and inspection.

The three focus areas of the JDP include the piloting 3D model based plan review, development of a utility to import data from the SHI CAD system into ABS engineering software, and the use of artificial intelligence to supplement traditional non destructive testing in the shipbuilding process.

It’s the second JDP with SHI that ABS has announced during Gastech. The first is a project to develop a next generation LNG carrier design with advanced air lubrication and smart capabilities.
