To facilitate the transparency that ARES Shipyard wanted to create for their clients, the maintenance team now not only tracks all maintenance performed, but also generates robust reports and dashboards showing key metrics and KPIs. For example, passenger safety is a top priority, so detailed documentation of performed maintenance is paramount. “Our client was more than satisfied when they saw the transparent records,” Ozgun Utku Alanc, ILS and Configuration Manager, explains. “They found the system to be very detailed, easy-to-use, and all-inclusive.”
To effectively prioritize work, ARES Shipyard now categorizes work orders by periodic maintenance, preventive maintenance, corrective maintenance, improvement and warranty claims. Efficiency of maintenance planning and scheduling is key for the ARES Shipyard team, as the timeframe that maintenance can be performed is very limited during a ship”™s port of call.
eMaint’s MX Mobile solution provides the maintenance team with the ability to upload pictures of incidents or breakdowns within seconds through mobile devices. In addition to uploaded images, eMaint’s document storage tool also provides ARES with a more efficient way to communicate with clients by sharing menus, manufacturing documents and reports within their CMMS. ARES Shipyard is planning to expand their maintenance services division through its partnership with eMaint, extending its maintenance contracts to other types of vessels.
