the best technical data integration
There’s increasing need from maritime companies to get accurate maintenance data and maintenance instructions from one system to another. From the suppliers’ systems (how to operate and maintain the product, job instructions, spare parts catalogues, etc.), to shipyards’ and shipowners’ systems, to vessel performance optimisation systems, so to keep ship systems in top performing condition.
In addition, collection of in-service data feedback is one of the most important functions of in-service support. It enables fleet and support managers and technical system manufacturers to perform a thorough analysis of operation and maintenance performance, as well as to improve the global support service.
Shipdex Protocol allows the best data exchange and integration within manufacturers, shipyards, end users and every other maritime organization. The final goal is to improve the whole Life Cycle Management for products’ longer and cheaper life
The Shipdex Protocol is composed of the following specifications:
- Shipdex-D (Documentation) based on ASD/AIA S1000D (s1000d.org)
- Shipdex-F (in-service data Feedback) based on ASD/AIA S5000F (www.s5000f.org)
An evaluation copy of both specifications is available on “Download” section
Shipdex is an independent and non-proprietary standard protocol, open to all maritime stakeholders.
