A physical server is not necessary. Team Project Hub is hosted in the Microsoft Cloud. We set up smaller, shorter projects as separate sites within our Team Project Hub organisation . For larger and longer projects, we set up your own dedicated domain name and your own project organisation
projectHUB runs in the Microsoft Cloud. You may already have Microsoft Office 365 licenses for personal or business use. With these in place there is not extra cost unless you wish to upgrade to a higher license package. You would log on with the email address that is associated with your Microsoft Office 365 Licensing.
For larger projects, we can set up projectname.com with GoDaddy and projectHUB can host firstname.lastname@example.org as your professional project email address using the built-in Microsoft Exchange. Options also exist for aliasing your business address to the project address, or vice versa. Please call for more information.
Yes! Microsoft Office 365 licensing allows us to modify the type of license and add/remove users on a monthly basis.
Team Project Hub works with both Macs and PCs, and with all modern browsers. We recommend patching both your hardware and browsers to ensure best protection in Cyperspace
Yes! You can be registered as a Guest user with a broad set of permissions using any Microsoft ID.
Or, for large projects, you can become email@example.com, and your project email address and your business email address can be aliased to work together.
You own the information! In any case, most of the information can be synchronised to OneDrive using your Microsoft ID
A well-known shipyard ran a penetration test on projectHUB for a recent project and was unable to compromise the firewall.
SharePoint is well protected in the Microsoft Cloud and projectHUB is considerably more secure than collaborating over email.
- Reduce future crew training costs
- Offer crew a better way of working, satisfied crew = better crew retention and less turnover (20% of crew leave due to job dissatisfaction)
- Vastly improve the dialogue around future refits! Saves travel time and allows direct collaboration between owner and yard teams, to review and estimate the worklist
- Offer a 3D experience to guests and charterers, pre- and post-travel
3dHUB enhances the value of a 3D photo shoot by tying its visual intuitiveness with the detailed project information and related media, gathered in our database.
The 3dHUB becomes the obvious interface for new crew and/or guests, without the need to train in the traditional vessel management system, or by trawling through files on board or in on-line storage providers.
We Tag equipment user manuals, guest-oriented user guides, safety-related operating procedures, general vessel information, escape yours, placement of safety equipment, how to board the tender, contact details and personal profiles for key crew members
We can create the 3dHUB before or after delivery. However, the post-delivery means it will lack the photographic geo-location of hidden equipment that can be captured during the build.
Working closely with the build team, we can nevertheless use drawings to Tag the hidden equipment in the model.
Crew do not always enjoy working the increasingly complex screens of the PMS. Lack of familiarity breeds lack of use. Computerised PMS can require extensive training for full adoption by Heads of Department. In contrast, the 3dHUB is visually intuitive and quickly accessible to all levels on board.
3dHUB is designed to work in harmony with CPMS. The Digital Twin visual approach familiarises the user with the yacht’s CPMS, and provides access to all types of digital media, manuals and lists.
The 3dHUB is web based and works best when linked to a browser-based CPMS.
But if the CPMS is application based, and the content files are on the network, then Tags can resolve to these media.
Yes. Without links to the CPMS software, the 3dHUB becomes more of an owner’s manual and refit support tool.
Users can still view Tags within their 3dHUB Digital Twin and navigate throughout the vessel intuitively. In all cases, the 3dHUB still provides access to familiarisation and safety information, and informs crew and visitors about the features on board.
If the CPMS does not support web, the 3dHUB Tags can simply resolve to embedded media about equipment information, user technical manuals, guest welcome packs, ISM forms, defect reporting, etc.
Hidden details are captured by shooting the vessel throughout various stages of the build, ensuring that a shoot is organised to capture the vessel’s equipment prior to the installation of the bulkheads, the installation of ceiling boards etc.
With numerous shoots of the vessels throughout the stages of construction, the final 3dHUB Digital Twin can be tagged with these models as reference. Additionally, models generated of the vessel during its construction can be kept for detailed photographic evidence of the hidden contents.
3dHUB Tags can link to video, image, voice memo but also navigate straight to CPMS or our SharePoint database where the user can open links straight into a particular equipment’s: technical information, owner’s manual, certificate, tasks, spare parts, drawings OR a particular SOP, Risk Assessment, List of Yacht Certificates, Crew Certificate etc.
- Assists new crew in familiarising themselves with the vessel, saving training time
- Offers an easily-browsed Tag-based portal for crew to better navigate the vessel’s information.
- Tags lead users to the stock of a spare part in a Room/Box/Shelf.
- Tags link to Standard Operating Procedures, SOLAS Manuals, Permits to work, Checklists and Forms, System Drawings etc.
Memories fade and as-built drawings are costly to produce and update. Shooting, and re-shooting the vessel can be more cost effective than updating drawings.
The 3dHUB supports dimensioning, so warranty staff can familiarise themselves with the size, shape and position of the on-board equipment before hopping on a plane with the expenses clock ticking.
Sharing the 3dHUB between the client and the shipyard promotes better understanding of technical and design issues before travelling to the yacht.
3dHUB assists in gauging the scope of the refit project, enhancing the transparency of the refit and rapport with the client.
Grants deeper knowledge of the vessel, saving time during refit otherwise spent finding hidden equipment
Ability to offer the client a before and after of the refit for better documentation of the work done and record of the vessel throughout its life cycle
Refit worklists are the start of any refit.
The next step is a photographic survey of the vessel and the intended changes.
With a 3dHUB, the photo-survey is already in place, and work can kick off Aids the owner in receiving a more accurate cost and time estimate of the refit with the greater vessel detail the 3dHUB provides
