MMS Brochures Detail Cost-Cutting Ship And Shore Management Systems
Marine Management Systems (MMS), a leader in providing computerized management information systems for the shipping industry, is offering a free set of brochures describing these systems, as well as various services offered by the company.
"MMS—An Overview," one of the brochures included in the literature, points out that MMS deals exclusively with the shipping industry to provide services in the areas of shipboard and shoreside applications systems and management consulting; that MMS has chosen as its microcomputer the IBM® PC (personal computer) which offers the power, speed and versatility to meet all shipboard and shoreside requirements; and that MMS can offer clients a full range of hardware, software and support, all from a single source.
Other brochures offered discuss the MMS "Planned Maintenance System" (PMS), which is described as an efficient, orderly and comprehensive system to help reduce ship repair and downtime costs; the MMS "Spare Parts Inventory Management System" (SPIM) which offers vessel operators the ability to exercise precise control over spare parts inventory; and the MMS "Condition Monitoring System" which, according to MMS, provides an easy-to-use shipboard predictive maintenance capability by offering the ability to detect problems in equipment before failures occur.
Also included is a brochure on the Cargomax load, stability and stress calculation system. The heart of Cargomax is a multipurpose IBM PC Microcomputer that uses a vessel loading program specially designed to reflect the physical characteristics of a ship. MMS says that with Cargomax, ship stability and stress calculations are performed quickly and precisely so that cargo is distributed in a way that maximizes the capacity of a ship while guaranteeing its safety.
With regard to hardware, MMS systems operate on MS DOS personal computers. With MMS' position as a full-service dealer for IBM, Zenith, Epson and others, they offer clients a full range of hardware, software and support, all from a single source.
