BIMCO has called for newbuilds to be fitted with a Computerised Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) to lower costs and improve efficiency.

The advantage of adopting a standardized protocol around CMMS is that it would reduce the need for paper manuals and reduce the incidence of outdated or incorrect documentation.

Industry-wide adoption of the Shipdex protocol would also support standardisation and digitalisation within the shipping industry, and lead to improvements in efficiency and safety.

It would also permit software suppliers to directly import part lists, work cards and maintenance schedules into individualised CMMS.

Further ahead, industry participants have noted that incorporating maintenance procedures into product databases could improve the flow of information between ship owners and OEMs.

The Shipdex protocol has support from a number of major CMMS suppliers including Logimatic, MESPAS AG, IB Software & Consulting, Hanseaticsoft ApS and Kongsberg Maritime AS.
