NYK Rolls Out Digital Ship Management Platform

first_imgzoomIllustration. Image Courtesy: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license The NYK Group has launched a new platform for ship management that would reduce onboard duties and make use of Big Data.Named NiBiKi, the platform digitalizes applications, approval, and operation workflow within the safety management system.By following the instructions and inputting appropriate information in provided forms, crews can correctly apply for approval, and that information can be automatically recorded, thus ensuring appropriate procedures by the crews, according to the company.Moreover, the NiBiKi system enables data to be shared between the ship operation company and the management company, and to be accumulated for Big Data analysis.The data will be shared with five ship-management companies overseeing about 260 vessels. The companies are located in Singapore, Tokyo, London, Taipei and Kobe.The group intends to proactively use Big Data for further safety improvements and develop a more comprehensive system that includes crew performance records, such as education and drills completed. As explained, NYK seeks to grasp the tendency of machinery failure and accidents caused by the crew to realize “zero downtime” together with ship management companies.last_img read more
