Safe update and maintenance of hardware and software - What lies in the horizon?
As ships are built with more and more complex equipment and sophisticated integrated computer- based systems, the shipping industry faces a challenge in ensuring that all systems on board remain reliable and safe throughout the lifetime of the ship.
Maintenance of electronic systems on board affects each other. This is furthermore complicated by the fact that many different component suppliers use their own non-standard software formats. These components are frequently used in the set-up of the networks, representing a growing problem in terms of cost with technology development moving at such a rapid pace.
When it comes to the hardware aspect, the situation is not much better. The difficulty lies in getting the correct spare parts on a worldwide basis, and the possible lack of warranty if the original spare parts are not used; are just some of the issues added on to an otherwise complicated supply-chain.
During the evening, we expect to see some clarity on what lies in the horizon with these up-and -coming issues.
16:30 - 17:00 3D printed components for large two stroke marine diesel engines.
by Martin Hedegaard Petersen, MAN Diesel & Turbo SE
The presentation consider:
- which engine components (if any) will it make sense to produce using additive manufacturing?
- which additive manufacturing technologies are there and which would be best for us?
These are some of the questions that MAN Diesel & Turbo wanted answers to in order to determine if this “new” manufacturing technique is something that would be worth spending resources on; and if so, to what extent could the technology be used in the future on board ships?
17:00 - 17:30 Cyber protection, what to remember when programming software
by Hans Ottosen, DANELEC
17:30 - 18:00 Refreshments
18:00 - 18:30 Software Maintenance from the System Manufacturer’s Perspective
by Richard Doherty, CIRM
As shipboard systems become increasingly integrated and software-dependent, it is critical that software is properly maintained to ensure the proper functioning of those systems. System manufacturers face a number of challenges across the software maintenance process, from the development of updates through to the execution of those updates on board. This presentation will consider a number of those challenges and outline CIRM’s response to them, through our contribution to the Standard on Software Maintenance of Shipboard Equipment.
18:30 - 19:00 Standard on Software Maintenance of Shipboard Equipment
by Aron Sørensen, BIMCO
The digitalisation and integration of shipboard systems provides fantastic opportunities; however, there is also a downside: Software updates on the bridge may for example cause a malfunction in the cargo system. The responsibility to ensure that things go right during software maintenance is split between manufacturers, service provides and shipowners. The presentation will focus on the shipowners side of ensuring safe and effective software maintenance on board ships.
19:00 - 19:30 Q/A session – “What is the outlook for the future”
by Jeppe Skovbakke Juhl, BIMCO
In collaboration with Danish Society for Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering.
