The vessel is being managed on behalf of the NATO Undersea Research Centre by Anglo Eastern (UK) in Glasgow.
Office management software has also been delivered to the local Base Manager’s Office at La Spezia, Italy, which will monitor vessel input to the Planned Maintenance and onboard Stock Control modules, along with the Purchasing module which initiates ship requisitions into the Purchase platform to include in budgeting.
The contract also required Marine Software to migrate data from the vessel’s existing system prior to installation, to ensure all historic Planned Maintenance and spare part component history records were accurately transferred into the new system.
A barcode label option was also included that will assist with stock control and tracking of spare parts.
During the final database commissioning visit, Marine Software personnel delivered a three day training course for the ship officers and local shore management team associated with requisition and purchase, and will provide follow-up training for those involved in maintenance logging and stock control.
