“Auros IQ captures and delivers technical knowledge in the flow of work – when and where it’s needed.”

Ship design, ship repair, and ship production require strict regulatory compliance. However, with all the advanced technologies, rules, requirements, and standards that must be considered, things are often overlooked, resulting in missed deadlines and increased costs.

Auros IQ works with you by continuously capturing and provisioning technical knowledge into your flow of work, exactly when it’s needed. From best practices to tribal knowledge to specifications to ABS rules and beyond, your engineers will be working with the most current and trusted know-how.

Auros IQ will enable you to capture and utilize your organization’s knowledge and experience, providing:

  • Improved first-time quality of ship design through knowledge provisioning
  • Documented compliance to regulatory standards
  • Reduced “non-value added” engineering time spent searching for information
  • Simplified design review process
  • Improved knowledge exchange between shipyard and supporting design agents
  • Reinforced the use of standard engineering processes
  • Ensured shipyard producibility through the application of design for manufacturing standards

“We’re taking the expertise from our experienced employees and building on it. The entire enterprise is continuously learning!”

“People are always going to be retiring or changing roles, leaving the company, this is a great way to capture and reuse their knowledge while they’re here.”

“No more searching through documents, no more rework… now our team can get it done right, the first time!”

Auros-Ship Constructor Structural Interface For Automated Compliance Checking

The National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP) has selected the project “Structural Interface for Automated Compliance Checking” in its latest round of Panel Projects as part of the program’s continuing mission to “reduce the total ownership cost and improve the capabilities of both United States Government and U. S. – flag commercial ships.”

This project builds upon a recently completed NSRP project in which Auros, LLC developed the technology to digitize ABS rules and guides as Auros Knowledge Packets, enabling the rules to be automatically provisioned into functional and detailed ship design processes. This new project takes that concept one step further by advancing a connection between Auros and the ShipConstructor CAD system to provision digitized structural rules directly into 3D Design Model workflows for ABS Rule compliance verification. This automated verification and capture of the design’s compliance allows verification earlier in the design process, archiving it for future auditing.

We believe that embedding digital Rules into CAD software will make the design process more efficient. ABS is excited to be working with the project partners to develop digital tools that will make application of the ABS Rules easier,” said Dan Cronin, ABS Vice President for Standards and Digital Class.
