Maritime and offshore systems are progressively becoming more complex and autonomous. Ensuring proper integration into increasingly sophisticated solutions can be an immense challenge. The joint industry project Open Simulation Platform (OSP) is facing this challenge by taking digital twins to the next level, developing an open source co-simulation software, a new specification for maritime simulation models and a set of open source maritime reference models.
Our second insight seminar in 2020 offers an insight into the OSP project, its deliverables and use cases, and the way forward. In addition, DNV GL will introduce ongoing work on a hosting solution that will enable efficient collaboration in a simulation Trust Center, with advanced functions for controlled model sharing, digital twin construction and collaborative simulations.

The Open Simulation Platform project
Maritime and offshore systems have over the past decades become increasingly complex and software controlled. This development is now accelerating with the introduction of higher levels of autonomy for an increasing number of functions. With equipment, systems and subsystems manufactured, delivered and maintained by a range of different manufacturers, ensuring proper integration into a complete system can be an immense challenge.
Some of the key properties of these complex, integrated systems, such as performance and safety, are emerging from the interactions in the system, and cannot be understood or deduced from looking at individual parts in isolation. Instead, the integrated system must be analyzed by testing and observation, either in operation or by simulation.
The Open Simulation Platform (OSP) joint industry project was initiated by DNV GL, Kongsberg, SINTEF and NTNU in 2018 to enable new working processes and collaborative system simulations to solve these challenges. The project, which completes in first phase in June, will deliver an open source co-simulation software, a new specification for maritime simulation models and a set of open source maritime reference models. The grand vision of the project is to establish an ecosystem for collaborative system simulations, enabling efficient building of digital twin systems and assets based on models and digital twin components from all stakeholders involved in a project:
In order to achieve this, the project has focused on building an architecture enabling co-simulation of models from a wide range of simulation tools and programming languages while protecting the IPR in individual models, and developing a specification that enables standardization and interoperability between tools and platforms. In parallel with the open source deliverables, DNV GL is working on a hosting solution that will enable efficient collaboration in a simulation Trust Center, with advanced functions for controlled model sharing, digital twin construction and collaborative simulations.
