Machinery Maintenance

Machinery Maintenance (NMM) is a software application that efficiently monitors, manages, and plans the maintenance of each vessel.

Proper maintenance of onboard machinery ensures smoother operation, better logistic control, and reduced breakdown costs.

NMM offers a cost-effective way to plan and schedule regular maintenance, outline correct work procedures, and maintain inventory for optimal store on board – which all
helps maximise earnings for the ship owners.

Why Machinery Maintenance?

Better allocation of resources

Collecting data on spare parts and maintenance jobs has economic advantages in terms of inventory management and planning; the ship operator can allocate resource with greater efficiency when maintenance data is available for purchasing decisions and budget planning.

Easier analysis

The system is risk and cost integrated: it checks equipment, activity, and personnel risks and quantifies the cost of these activities in financial calculations. This provides users with a powerful tool for analysing and comparing operations

Minimise communication costs

updates are converted into XML files that are then zipped to make the file size very small (e.g. <8kb). This makes it possible to send files through low satellite bandwidths at much lower costs

Save time

Automatic migration of updated data from the vessel into the central database saves time and reduces communication costs as no human intervention is needed.

Ensure quality

Having the NMM system on board is an essential part of the Quality Management System (QMS) as the whole process of maintaining a vessel is handled on a single, integrated platform. The application is also in compliance with the International Safety Management (ISM) Code.

Better evaluations and estimation

All work histories are stored and easily retrieved. This data can be used for risk and performance evaluations, and will offer shipowners an increasingly accurate description of ship cost/maintenance structures.

Based on a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)

SOA helps organisations respond faster and more cost-effectively to changing market conditions as the SOA makes it possible to look at a problem holistically, e.g. by integrating all services in a purchase – such as Purchasing Department,
Finance Department, and Store Admin – in one single process
