Friday, August 16, 2002

The order consitsts of three on-board versions and one shore version of the new developed Virtual Ship Explorer (VSE). The logistic company Ocean Logistics GmbH, a subsidiary of Abeking & Rasmussen is responsible for the total system. With the on-board version the crew will be able to manage all documentation for on-board systems, including full spare parts logistic, i.e. from choosing relevant parts from the respective spare parts lists, to storage up to ordering parts needed. The system includes compilation of all relevant technical logs as required by law and assists all requirements of the ISM Code (International Safety Management Code). Maintenance schedules will be generated automatically according to operating hours responding time since last maintenance echelon, relevant spare parts can be ordered via e-mail. Further to these features the shore version allows fleet management by data exchange ship-shore/ shore-ship. Procurement of spare parts and their distribution can be coordinated for vessels of same class. By the Virtual Ship Explorer, the German Coast Guard will have a state of the art logistic tool for a modern fleet of the new Offshore Patrol Vessels.
