Rolls-Royce Marine has
successfully implemented Shipdex as the data standard for its Tunnel Thruster
range produced in Ulsteinvik, Norway. They are the third Rolls-Royce Marine
products to adopt the Shipdex standard.
At present the final published
output is in pdf, but the adoption of Shipdex opens exciting possibilities for
both Rolls-Royce Marine and its customers. In the future Rolls-Royce will
have the ability to deliver an Interactive Electronic Technical Publication
(IETP) or complete a data exchange with its customer. If the customer
opts for a data exchange, they will be able to load the data into their own
Publishing and/or Maintenance Management System.
