According to the ISM, code shipowners must have written plans, methods, and rules for shipboard operations on a specific vessel (including how cargo is loaded, stowed, and secured) as well as ship and cargo equipment maintenance. In the event of a loss or damage, this unavoidably means that these procedures will be scrutinized. In this scenario, the reporting mechanism mandated by the Code, which generates information on difficulties discovered, is even more important. To fix the flaw in the ship’s operation, appropriate corrective action must be implemented. The updated system is then monitored to ensure it is working properly.
All of these steps must be documented in detail. It doesn’t take much imagination to see a circumstance in which a number of occurrences have occurred with a vessel, all of which, when considered together, hint to a serious flaw in the ship or the way she is operated. The ramifications for seaworthiness, as well as the owner’s position with his hull underwriters, will vary depending on the facts of the case, but ISM cannot be overlooked when determining whether a vessel is seaworthy.
The shipboard planned maintenance system (PMS) has the following goal: to ensure that all maintenance is performed at appropriate intervals and according to the planned maintenance system’s schedule.
To keep all engines, machinery, and technical components in good operating order at all times in order to avoid breakdowns and meet charter party speed and consumption requirements.
By covering all of the tasks, you may eliminate interruptions and oversight.
Make a clear distinction between aboard and shore-based maintenance.
Shipowners and operators are striving to maximize profit margins by cutting operational expenses and boosting vessel availability as the economic slump continues to influence the already overfull shipping sector. Simultaneously, the expansion of information and communication technology (ICT) is pushing data collection, interchange, and analysis to new heights, opening up new frontiers for both maritime corporations and shipbuilders. So, how can the marine sector take advantage of this avalanche of new data to cut costs and increase vessel availability?

A ship on the dock is similar to an empty rental property: it costs a lot of money but generates no income. The amount of intricate technology onboard rises as vessels develop increasingly high-tech. A ship may be out of service for unnecessarily long periods of time if there is no means to efficiently organize maintenance schedules for all aboard systems, which has a direct influence on profitability for ship owners/operators. Shipyards that wish to compete for shipowners’ and operators’ business must figure out how to not only provide, but also optimize, ship service and maintenance operations. A new, scalable maintenance approach is required for this. Ship maintenance in Malaysia relies on the comprehensive digital twin to consolidate data from numerous CAD sources, as well as performance, maintenance, and conversion information, into a single source of truth. The digital twin enables shipyards and owners/operators to efficiently and proactively diagnose maintenance issues, improve safety, and reduce the amount of time the ship is taken out of service by taking and analyzing ship working data and offering actionable insight for well-versed decision making. It also allows design teams to receive operational and service data insights to assist them enhance product performance, increase service quality, and reduce the lifetime costs of current and future designs.…
