is an EC FP7 funded, three year project to develop an
approach to incorporate human factors into Risk-Based
Design of ships. The project consortium consists of 12 members
including industry, academia and research institutes.
FAROS will use experimental data, simulations, parametric ship design models and optimisation processes to integrate human factors into the ship design process at a conceptual stage. This will include global and local ship design factors features.
This project builds on previous research and development of Risk-Based Design (RBD) for ships which began with SAFEDOR, and encompasses damage stability (GOALDS), fire safety (FIREPROOF), flooding control (FLOODSTAND) and environmental impact (FLAGSHIP).
The FP7 Programme is also funding two partner projects on Human Factors in ship design:
• Crew-centered Design and Operations of Ships and Ship Systems (CyClaDes)
• Model-based Cooperative and Adaptive Ship-based Context Aware Design (CASCADe)
The FAROS project now has a LinkedIn page.
