Guidance on failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA)
Having decided to accept input via its website, IMCA M Guidelines for the Design and Operation of Dynamically Positioned Vessels , was one of the first documents to be the subject of an open forum on the IMCA website, enabling all with an interest in guidance being written or revised to play an active role. I recall one story doing the rounds at the time of an acoustic beacon being fitted to a tautwire weight and the two systems being accepted by some DPOs as two separate position reference systems. This clearly would not be the case today. The DP industry has moved on substantially since those times, and I am proud of the work that has been undertaken with this latest review. There are now three main sections to the guidelines — design, operational and vessel specific. The original document had generic design and operations in one section, and although M has been expanded, the splitting of this section into two separate sections makes it easier to follow. The principles behind the design guidance, in section one, is to achieve safety in DP vessel design through a fault-tolerant approach based on the principle of redundancy.
