For offshore assets, Dynamic Positioning (DP) systems are mission and safety critical, software-dependent, and must be integrated with many other systems in order to work as expected. Because integration and software testing are so crucial to properly-functioning DP systems, commissioning is a critical step. Unfortunately, there are many potential pitfalls related to the commissioning of DP systems for offshore assets. In this paper, we focus on three common DP commissioning mal-practices and the practices proven to mitigate their inherent risks.
