In this offered service, the navigational data of the ship are analyzed by creating a ship model by means of a Ship Operation Analysis System developed by Akishima Laboratories (Mitsui Zosen) Ltd. (MES’s 100 percent owned subsidiary with president Mr. Junshi Takashina) gathering information on the ship’s outline specifications and operational data (such as Noon Report, ABLOG etc.) from the customer.
The data analyzed are segregated according to aging degradation and disturbance effect in chronological order and will be supplied as ship’s operation performance information under actual sea conditions including data for sea margin, decrease of ship’s speed and FOC analysis information. In addition, operational schedule support service is also offered by supplying data of meteorological influence according to season of the year and the navigational route to help finding of contractual speed, bunker contract and operational schedule most appropriate to every and each ship for its own navigational route.
