Martin Briddon MBE from James Fisher Mimic, provider of engineering and condition monitoring services and part of the James Fisher Group, will launch the Mimic Shipping Classification Report at the Lloyds List Condition Monitoring in Shipping conference.
Generated from within the Mimic Condition Monitoring software, the report will combine condition monitoring and vibration data together with information from AMOS Maintenance & Purchase and present it in electronic or hardcopy versions to a visiting Class Surveyor. Created in conjunction with Lloyds Register, this report will allow ship operators to present machinery information required for class survey.
The report will form part of James Fisher's Mimic suite of Condition Monitoring software tools and products that help ship owners to control the cost of their maintenance. It is the only condition monitoring software with Lloyds Register accreditation.
Essentially, this is all about taking existing data from systems that are already in place, and delivering the data to the right person - and in a format which will support the vital function of the surveyor.
A pilot trial is due to commence soon - where the pilot project team includes: Carnival UK, Lloyds Register, JF Mimic and SpecTec. A positive result could have wide-reaching implications and may set new standards - in terms of more efficient and cost-effective surveys.
