Marine Project Manager (Vessel) for Windows
Marine Project Manager for Windows has been specifically designed to assist Superintendents and others engaged in ship repair with the monitoring and control of costs. It is particularly suited for annual surveys and refits as well as more occasional repair and modification projects.
The Vessel MPJv program interfaces with Marine Planned Maintenance MPM. This will allow specific Defects, PM and Survey jobs, to be sent from the MPM system directly to the MPJ vessel system. The Chief Engineer can also create other jobs into the Planning Specification for other items that need to be dealt with at refit or dry dock.This will aid the Superintendent with the initial production of the Refit Specification.
Once the project has been sent to the Superintendent the projects have three distinct phases that the program addresses in a logical and straightforward manner:
Specifications can be typed in and printed from within the program, also estimated figures for each job can be entered into the Targets menu giving the user a rough idea of the projects cost. Later the contractor's Tender prices can be added to each individual job specification well before the project starts. Similarly any exclusions from the Tenders can be suitably estimated and a good idea of the final price for each job and for the whole project can be obtained. A detailed comparison of each of the prospective contractor's Tender prices is readily available.
Each job has its own specifications, notes, reports, prices and status fields where the user can enter any information relating to the job. For example the notes field could contain information regarding particular points to watch out for and this can be augmented as the project continues, forming the basis for the final report.
The system will allow for current currency and exchange rates to be entered, this enables all cost field to be changed as required between the home currency and the project currency. This can prove very useful when assessing "value" with regard to a specific Tender price or additional work.
The Tender menu allows prices to be entered quickly after the Tenders are returned in either a paper format, where the figures are entered manually or a disk format, where the figures are returned on USB memory stick and loaded into the system.
Once all of the shipyard / contractor Tender returns have been entered into the Tender browse screen, an evaluation or comparison can be carried out of the costs between each Tender. During this evaluation stage an exclusion figure can be included either for the whole project or down to each job for a specific shipyard / contractor.
During the project close control is exercised by regularly entering all extra work as and when it occurs, by registering a credit for any quoted work consequently found unnecessary or work that was not completed. At ALL times the total project cost is kept under constant review.
Report printouts are available in various formats including the financial breakdowns of specified sections.
Marine Project Manager is available in three different versions:
