LONDON – Lloyd’s Register has launched its Integrated Software Intensive Systems (ISIS) notation to help prevent offshore drilling safety and efficiency issues.

These issues include project delays, the impact of late delivery of assets, software security concerns, and the uncertain environmental and safety performance factors associated with non-productive downtime.

The ISIS notation, which is part of the newly released Mobile Offshore Unit (MOU) Rules, provides a perspective of “Total System through Life in Context”, and reduces the risk of ambiguity on roles and responsibilities of stakeholders - owners, operators, shipyards, and suppliers when dealing with software and integrated systems.

It improves the visibility and requirements on the development process of software, and provides the required state-of-art software inspection techniques.
