As a step ahead in the MAN Diesel & Turbo and SpecTec Group cooperation, on October 25, 2010, AMOS BS was installed at MAN Diesel & Turbo's PrimeServ location in . On October 26, 10members of MAN Diesel & Turbo staff were trained on AMOS BS main features, by Kim Pommegard and Jens Ipsen from SpecTec DK. SpecTec ILS Manager, Marco Vatteroni, gave his own contribution, showing how it is possible, in a few minutes, to automatically create an AMOS BS database by importing a MAN Diesel Shipdex dataset using AMOS Shipdex Interface.
MAN Diesel & Turbo views this as an important step towards gaining experience with how ship owners deal with maintenance management. "In the long run this exercise will enable us to better understand the ship owners’ requirements for structure and quality of maintenance data for our products", says Henrik Striboldt, Business Development Manager at MAN Diesel & Turbo."
“The great benefit to the shipping industry and the main goal of Shipdex is to significantly improve the quality of data being used in maintenance systems ensuring greater reliability and more efficient operations resulting in fewer incidents at sea. The training undertaken between SpecTec and MAN Diesel & Turbo will bring the industry one step closer to realizing this goal” says Marco Vatteroni, ILS manager at SpecTec Group.
