- collecting, analyzing, reporting to relevant stakeholders
- make recommendations to captain before and during the voyage
This provides owners, operators and crew with the information they need to understand, for example, current fuel efficiency figures and reasons why are the like that.
The fleet-wide analysis provides comparative performance indicators and gives shipowner or shipping company the information needed to determine if the vessel have been used in the most efficient way.
The performance management and monitoring system that you essentially need will be based on data logged from ships. You should have some quality control and validation procedures in place to ensure that the indicators coming from ships are meaningful. And then you want to analyze them. Different methods can be used pending data availability. In general, you want to compare the actual state of the ship with a baseline, that is, with a ship model that describes the ship in a particular state, usually at the time it was new.
In Marine Digital we are solving every problem that may occur during vessel performance monitoring
. This includes not only data gathering but also processing and interpretation of the received one, creation of convenient reports, delivery of charts to the navigation system (ECDIS) on board, as well as recommendations for the best route according to weather, fuel consumption and other reports.
We have developed universal hardware equipment, that can gather the most crucial data from different types of vessels without any other sensors, IoT devices, and so on. Also using this equipment we can deliver navigational charts right to the ECDIS.
To analyze and process gathered information we are using mathematical algorithms and machine learning. The more data we collect, the more precise reports and recommendations our system will perform according to individual requirements in fleet management of the shipping company.
