The shipping industry is one of the driving forces of the global economy. It is crucial to have continuity of operations when, in particular, the profit margins are limited. Operational disruptions or failures would be disastrous for all the stakeholders involved.
Downtime will cost the maritime industry millions of dollars in revenue. Maintenance after a breakdown gets trickier as it is an indication of the probability and frequency of increase in future maintenance tasks, thereby incurring more costs. Besides, the seafarers onboard have to be competent and trained in different systems, products, and technologies. It is necessary to follow the manufacturer’s instructions regarding testing, regular verifications, and replacement of parts to ensure the proper working and life of the systems
Maintenance plans are scheduled in advance to reduce downtime. Whether you have just one or quite a few vessels, it is essential to protect and manage your assets with a secure preventive maintenance system. A planned maintenance system helps increase the uptime, cuts costs, and ensures the safety of the crew and the cargo.
How does it work?
A Planned Maintenance System (PMS) software can help you execute a maintenance schedule that allows time for quick vessel inspections and implementation of preventive measures for various issues. It helps you to be on top of the issues, rather than be bogged down by them.
- Arrange Routine Maintenance with Ease
There are a lot of vessels that still manually log the maintenance jobs and the inspections onto spreadsheets making the work tedious and full of errors. With the PMS software, you can set reminders or push notifications for due dates, meter readings, engine hour intervals, and much more. It streamlines your maintenance workflow and processes, ensuring operational efficiency and continuity.
Let’s continue with the benefits and features of the PMS in the next blog.
