Applied Weather Technology, Inc. (AWT), a provider of fleet optimization services and onboard voyage management software, today announced the latest version of its fully customizable fleet management system with the release of Fleet Decision Support System (FleetDSS) Version 2.0. In addition to being suitable for use within a company's IT network, FleetDSS has new tools, including an ETA confidence tool and a comparative vessel type performance graph, making it easy for operators to closely monitor the efficiency of their fleets.

"At AWT, we are committed to meeting the diverse needs of all sectors of the shipping industry," said Haydn Jones, CEO of AWT. "With the launch of FleetDSS 2.0, we believe AWT has developed an invaluable tool that will help companies be more efficient in managing their fleets while minimizing fuel consumption and improving safety."

FleetDSS 2.0 includes high-resolution wind, wave and current data to provide operators with more detailed information. This version also includes specific information about swell conditions and combined with other parameters, provides detailed information on how ships will be affected by the weather and currents.

Version 2.0 is a network version which means it can now be set up to collect the weather and route data at one central location and multiple users can access this data. For clients with many users, this will significantly reduce the amount of data being downloaded while providing quick access to the data they need.

Version 2.0 adds an ETA confidence tool that analyzes 20 model outputs to predict the likelihood that a ship will arrive at the projected time. Operators can use this tool to evaluate the confidence in a vessel's ETA and the likelihood of the vessel having an earlier or later arrival in order to make more informed decisions.

In addition, FleetDSS 2.0 provides a graphical tool comparing performance across a group or class of ships to help fleet managers monitor the efficiency of their fleets. Using this tool, operators compare their ship's performance with other ships of the same type. This helps operators more easily see if a ship is under-performing and may have an issue that needs to be addressed.

With version 2.0, ship operators can easily assess how each vessel is doing compared to their specific charter party terms. Operators can access this data using the fleet performance report or monitor vessels that are under-performing using the alert dashboard.
