Glossary of Terms


Blueprint Library is a location for pre-made Custom Blueprints developed by Shipyard staff.

Blueprints are the foundation of the application. They contain the design specifications for a repeatable task. In other applications, these may be referenced as templates, macros, or operators.

Vessels are built using Blueprints. In other applications, these may be referenced as tasks or jobs.

Fleets are built by connecting multiple Vessels together. In other applications, these may be referenced as workflows or DAGs.

Voyages are a single run of a Vessel or Fleet. Data about a Voyage is stored as a Log.

Logs are a historical record of how a Fleet or Vessel voyage at a specific point in time. A Fleet's log will contain multiple Vessel Logs.

Triggers are the logic that determines when a Vessel or Fleet should begin running.

Projects house Vessels and Fleets that you have created under them. Each project is associated with it's own timezone.

Organizations house all of your Projects and Blueprints. This is the highest grouping structure in the platform that users can control.

Element refers to any of the above bolded words.

Platform refers to the Shipyard application as a whole. Elements that live under the Platform level are controlled and managed by Shipyard staff.
