Subchapter M emphasizes the importance of planned maintenance in operating safety and effective maritime assets in the brown Water and Coastal Tug industries. IDEA SBA provides the ability to assign specific on-board tasks to the maintenance department, which leads to a decrease of work, break downs, inventory needs and occurring problems can be quickly identified and resolved.
Staff can manage updates on each vessel from the shore office while the crew is performing inspections and confirming them through the IDEA SBA mobile application. Triggers are set on each component in order to notify the crew on what needs to be assessed daily. Once the maintenance tasks are complete, the employees sign off on the tasks and provides the administration office with an elaborate and customized report for record keeping.
