The maritime and offshore industries are increasingly reliant on integrated computer-based control systems and the associated software that actually ‘runs’ the systems. Industrial computers and the software they run are controlling exponentially more rig functions than ever before with increasingly more complex coding for expanded functionality. Ultimately, introduction of these complex systems into safety, environmental and operational functions have a significant impact on rig performance—software quality management is becoming a primary contributor to the overall performance of a rig.
