The DocSoft e-3 is the powerful heart of the ship or power plant level which is capable to online capture all engine parameters from different systems and evaluates and analyses them at the same time to predict incipient failures. In this way, the DocSoft also acts as alarm monitoring system for the engine with the capability to communicate with the alarm system on the ship. Furthermore, the DocSoft sends all engine data to the EDCenter to warn the managers onshore by e-mail about abnormal conditions on the vessel. This important function ensures that immediate action can be taken on all levels to ensure energy efficiency and low maintenance costs.
Using the online capability of the DocSoft changes the workflow of analysing the monthly reports on the unit level. Instead of waiting for week or month on an external expertise the DocSoft gives the result on spot.
The measured and calculated values are corrected either ISO, or with reference conditions. This eliminates the influence of ambient conditions and makes measurements comparable.
The engine validation module presents the deviation limits in a simple traffic light overview. For a deeper analysis, the deviation can be visualized in other views of the DocSoft e-3 software such as correlation charts, bar graph or crank angle, etc.
Simplified work on board
Together with the previous functionalities the DocSoft e-3 software online automatically collects the engine performance data from different signal sources for further diagnostics and comparisons. The new enhancements give the chief engineers a quick and reliable overview about the engine status. No need to fill out lengthy reports as the new software can easily be set up to automatically fill out reports.
Furthermore, the system is designed to online automatically share the results with the superintendent onshore or by pushing a button to benchmark the results with the entire fleet. This is possible because the software is seamlessly integrated into the unique engine diagnostic center in a modern cloud application. The solution automates the huge workflow of engine reports between ship and operator and enables to access data any time to keep track of the history and predict what will happen with the engine condition in the future.
