Designing a Ship-Generated Waste Management Plan According to the Model-Based Systems Engineering Approach
Purpose: The main objective of the paper is to present a new approach in planning waste management on commercial ships, based on the author's model i.e., Planning to Improve Efficiency of Management (PIEWM) created on the basis of GOPRR (Graph-Object-Property-Relationship-Role). Design/methodology/approach: The paper presents issues concerning the planning of waste management on commercial ships. In the research conducted, the Model Based-System Engineering (MBSE) has been applied, which makes it possible to digitise the optimisation of decisions concerning designing and checking the correctness of operation of particular functions of the processes carried out. Findings: Planning to Improve Efficiency of Management (PIEWM) is an information system that can be used to plan shipboard waste management in international shipping in order to reduce the negative environmental impact of sea-going vessels. Practical Implications: The paper presents how systems engineering and domain modelling can be used to develop a concept and at the same time prototype a tool for designing improvement plans for the efficiency of waste management. Originality/value: This paper presents a new approach to shipboard waste management planning using MBSE.
