The format of cooperation will involve several joint technical meetings in the US and Europe. The cooperation will contribute to standardisation efforts in the STEP domain.
European links: ESPRIT project Maritime (6041).
The collaboration led to the agreement to base the ship product model development on the Building Block methodology both in Europe and in the USA. Shipbuilding Application Protocols (AP) of ISO TC184/SC4 (STEP) were progressed. AP216 (Ship Moulded Forms) completed its industry review and adapted scope and requirements respectively. AP 217 (Ship Piping) is ready for industry review. The framework for the interoperability of the APs was improved.
The results of the collaboration are published via EMSA (European Marine STEP Association) and their newsletter. Resulting documents are available from ISO TC84/SC4/WG3.
