Title Designing of integrated quality and safety management system (IQSMS) for shipping operations
Bibliographic information May 2009, Vol.47, No.5, p.569-577. Illus. 45 ref.
Abstract This article proposes a systematic approach for exploring the compliance level of the international safety management (ISM) code with the ISO 9001:2000 in order to structure an integrated quality and safety management system (IQSMS) for shipping operations. Multi-attribute fuzzy axiomatic design was determined to be a suitable methodology. To illustrate the proposed approach, a mechanical failure on board an oil tanker is analysed. The advantages of IQSMS as an operational tool for enabling ship management companies implement the ISM code are highlighted.
