Intending to further improve its ‘hands-on’ training courses, MAN Diesel & Turbo will use AMOS, the CMMS (computerised maintenance management system) provided by SpecTec since 1985, as a teaching tool to show students how to manage and optimise the process of maintenance, inspection and spare part purchasing on board vessels.
The AMOS database for this project has been created automatically by importing MAN Diesel & Turbo engine data standardised in accordance with the Shipdex protocol.
“We are pleased to introduce AMOS in our classroom environment,” said Henrik Striboldt, MAN Diesel & Turbo.
“It makes a big difference to be able to present to our students maintenance and inspection of our products via a type of system that many of our customers already use back-on-the-job. AMOS also allows us to quickly upload new maintenance data in Shipdex format, in the event new products are coming into the Academy.”
AMOS has been initially installed at the MAN PrimeServ Academy in Copenhagen, and may in future be extended to other MAN PrimeServ academies around the world.
“The SpecTec cooperation with MAN Diesel & Turbo is also aimed at demonstrating that best results can be obtained by merging a powerful CMMS like AMOS with standardised electronic technical information in Shipdex format,” noted Marco Vatteroni, SpecTec.
“Shipdex eliminates the need to insert technical data inside IT applications by hand. This means lower costs, better and more complete information, and fewer or no mistakes.”
