Open Access research that is better understanding work in the global economy...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation based within Strathclyde Business School.

Better understanding the nature of work and labour within the globalised political economy is a focus of the 'Work, Labour & Globalisation Research Group'. This involves researching the effects of new forms of labour, its transnational character and the gendered aspects of contemporary migration. A Scottish perspective is provided by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). But the research specialisms of the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation go beyond this to also include front-line service work, leadership, the implications of new technologies at work, regulation of employment relations and workplace innovation.

The INCASS (Inspection Capabilities for Enhanced Ship Safety) project brings together experienced partners to tackle the issue of ship inspection. The INCASS consortium brings an innovative solution to the integration of monitoring, inspection, data gathering, risk analysis and management and Decision Support for ship structures, machinery and equipment in an efficient and collaborative manner. INCASS project introduces the enhanced inspection of ship structures employing robotic platforms, providing real time data, incorporating Structural and Machinery Risk Analysis (SRA and MRA), enhanced central database and Decision Support System for continuous monitoring and risk analysis. This paper demonstrates the key features of INCASS project methodology and tools development. Furthermore, the paper demonstrates a case study on MRA by taking into account a ship Fuel Oil (FO) pump. The results are assessed on system, sub-system and component levels by considering various probable failure modes.
