Planned maintenance systems for vessels

The AST Planned Maintenance Software System is a sophisticated, but easy to use, modular application designed for Marine Engineers and Operations Managers to cost-effectively manage their vessel(s) maintenance tasks.

The software enables users to plan, monitor, record and implement complex maintenance tasks, including compliance reporting and innovative predictive maintenance monitoring.

What is it?

The AST-Planned Maintenance System contributes towards improved maintenance on the vessel(s) increasing efficiencies by avoiding downtime and preventing part(s) malfunction.

From medical supplies to the main engine, every piece of equipment sent on board can be listed together with any associated work procedures.

Already used on a number of vessels around the world, including tankers and crew transfer vessels, the software allows both the ship’s crew and the office-based team(s) to manage daily checks, stock levels and routine procedures for the whole vessel.

iRAMS Vessels

Modular

The software has a modular architecture and as such can be introduced in ‘simple to implement’ modules, with optional added-value functionality to meet the needs of individual vessels.

The AST-Planned Maintenance System home page uses a simple traffic light system to highlight any equipment that requires attention and indicates dates when tasks are due.

Defect reporting

Defect reports are raised on the vessel and transmitted to the owner. As well as a detailed description of the defect, the report should contain the author’s considered opinion on the resources and actions required to rectify the problem.

AST MSL PMS Defect report

On transmission to the office system, the owner enters the intended actions and sends the report back to the vessel, from that moment on the report is locked and cannot be modified. Notes can be written on the report and transmitted to and from the owner. All correspondence regarding a particular report will be attached to it. A report can only be closed on the vessel’s system, it is then re-sent to the owner whereupon it is automatically closed in the office system.

Spare parts & consumables

Already used on a number of vessels around the world, including tankers and crew transfer vessels, the software allows both the ship’s crew and the office-based team(s) to manage daily checks, stock levels and routine procedures for the whole vessel.

AST MSL PMS spare parts report

This page allows you to add spare parts linked to the items on the Tree.  From a practical point of view, there’s little to be gained by entering a complete spares catalogue into the system, because the majority of parts will never be used. Only the parts likely to be used need be entered, more parts can be added as and when required.

The spare parts and consumables are accessible to the user if they require to use a part in order to complete a work procedure. Items can be dragged onto a dialogue to list the parts/consumables used while carrying out the work. The items used are automatically taken from the “Remaining” quantity, therefore you can monitor the stock level.

Certification

The certificates required for the vessel are contained on the Certificates page.

AST MSL PMS certification report

A listing of the certificates and their inspection/renewal dates is shown and a traffic-light system highlights the status of each one. Copies of the originals are stored as PDF files which can be uploaded on board or by using the office-based program to deliver them, in either case the office system will show the date each one arrived on board, and whether or not it was opened for inspection.

Already used on a number of vessels around the world, including tankers and crew transfer vessels, the software allows both the ship’s crew and the office-based team(s) to manage daily checks, stock levels and routine procedures for the whole vessel.
