MAN launches real-time data analysis platform

MAN Energy Solutions has introduced a new digital platform, MAN CEON to collect and evaluate operating and sensor data and monitor in real-time marine engines, turbines and compressors.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new digital platform integrates data and information from MAN machinery and its operational environment and uses intelligent analysis tools for evaluation and forecasting. The platform is scalable and can monitor several thousands of customer installations. According to Per Hansson, head of digital and strategy, MAN Energy Solutions, the platform will monitor down to the level of small subcomponents, like with a digital twin, with high-resolution data available on demand. He explains: “To do this, we employ state-of-the-art, cloud-based technology and algorithms that automatically identify and report problems. And of course the platform meets the requirements for end-to-end security."

After connecting their installation to MAN CEON customers can access the platform via a web application on their PC, or by using a mobile terminal; data is sent and processed continuously. Encrypted data transmission and a multi-level authorisation procedure during login ensure maximum data security.

The operating data of all systems and ships networked via CEON can be transmitted to MAN service centres in real time. From here, MAN experts pro-actively support customers with problem solving and maintenance. This is aided by the communication functions within MAN CEON, which enable video and audio live-chats.

Hansson added: "With MAN CEON, we can provide our customers with even better support during their daily work and optimise the availability and efficiency of installations, regardless of whether it is a ship on the high seas, a power plant, an industrial application, or even an oil platform. We can instantly respond to unusual operating-data and quickly offer customised solutions and services."

According to MAN, the company’s IT experts, software engineers and data analysts are working together with customers and domain experts on the company's digital value-creation chain, which extends from hardware development to the development of cloud-based platforms and front-end applications, as well as data-analysis solutions.

Hansson said: "Digitalisation is often reduced to a purely technical level. In fact, it is above all a cultural issue, a mindset. Thinking digitally means being able to quickly adapt your own business model to make use of new technologies and developments."{/mprestriction}

  • StratumFive launches collaborative workspace

    StratumFive has launched Podium, a collaborative workspace that connects applications, data, and people, across the maritime community.

    Podium connects any data source or third party application and integrates them within its timeline architecture. Users can quickly visualise correlated data streams in an agile dashboard environment, transforming operational decision-making, in a flexible and collaborative workspace.

    Powerful features and configurability allow users across an enterprise to easily build their own dashboards, customised data mapping, interactive displays and alerts, from any location. This enables owners, operators and managers to streamline and standardise the data they use, whilst reducing costs by discarding duplicate data sets.

    Podium ingests, unifies and visualises billions of data points and scales to accommodate user demands and data volumes, whilst maintaining complete consistency in terms of output for all users.

    In addition, the Podium partnership program will enable start-ups and existing digital providers to expand their maritime presence easily by accessing StratumFive’s global client base, data holdings and technical infrastructure.

    Podium launches with a series of in-house options including voyage monitoring, weather routing and StratumFive’s next generation compliance and tracking applications.

    “With many years spent in operations around the world, I have been frustrated by the inefficiencies and costs caused by poor data acquisition, processing and communication across applications and stakeholders,” said Mike Powell, strategy director, StratumFive.

    “Until now, digitalisation has often made things worse for people working on ships and at shore, as increasing enterprise-wide data and information demands require too much manual intervention and effort. Currently, high levels of activity do not always equal productivity.

    “Podium is designed to be the workspace for the whole enterprise, linking data and applications, ensuring all stakeholders not only start from the same page, but also have the tools they need to maximise the efficiency and value of their part of the voyage.”

    Ross Martin, COO, StratumFive, added: “It is true that shipping businesses globally are currently not reaping the promised rewards of digitalisation - but Podium provides the solution that our industry desperately needs to realise cost savings and other operational efficiencies.

    “A growing number of operators are laboriously gathering data from a number of silos and trying to make sense of it using generic ‘business intelligence’ tools. These tools do not offer the maritime domain specific functionality, nor the degree of automation required to make smarter operational decisions faster.”

    StratumFive consulted closely with the industry in the development of Podium. Major owners and operators are already using the platform across their daily operations, with reportedly more preparing to adopt the technology in the near future.
