SMART Notification helps improve compliance and safety
One of the core competencies for Alpha Ori lies in the fact that we are shaping the future of Maritime Industry through technology by bringing about a shift in mindset from a reactive to a proactive to a predictive approach. Alpha Ori’s proprietary SMARTShip™ platform is a Cloud hosted dual core extensible platform that connects to a large number of ships to collect live data and provide real time analytics and insights to increase operational efficiency. With 200+ ships on-board the SMARTShip™ platform, we receive on average 1.8 billion data points per day.
The ability to process the volume, velocity and veracity of the data received from SMARTShip™ vessels is its biggest strength. Being able to extract meaningful insights from that data to help our customers take pre-emptive decisions to avoid non-compliance or to prevent equipment failures is where SMART Notification comes into the picture.
SMART Notification is a simple and intuitive but extremely impactful SMARTShip™ feature for “real time alerts and decision support” which is redefining the way ship and shore users are being alerted about overall health of the vessel in terms of safety, reliability and compliance. The SMART Notification feature enables users to define, view, and subscribe to system notifications and alerts in real time. With SMART Notification users can:
Below are some of the actual use cases of SMART Notification which has resulted in maintaining compliance and safety of the vessel and the ship crew.
The ECA application in SMARTShip helps the vessel crew to enter and exit these ECA zones without non-compliances. It is important that users of the platform from ship to shore receive timely notifications which help them maintain compliance with all the laws and regulations. The ECA SMART Notifications pane shows the notifications which the application triggers during the stage of changeover. A few examples are:
As observed from the screenshot, the user of the platform received notification before the ship entered an ECA-SOX compliance zone. Also, it can be noted that the alert was categorized as ‘Alarm’ indicating the severity and importance of the notification.
As a result of this SMART Notification, the following actions were taken:
SMARTShip™’s Notification module is a centralized SMARTShip’s Notification module is a centralized application where users can view all historical and active notifications for any vessel in their fleet. The notification module provides additional insights into the time when a notification was triggered, notification severity (warning, critical or alarm) and details of the sensor(s) such as category, system name, instance, sensor name, sensor value, unit, and sensor description.
During one of the voyages of a SMARTShip installed Vessel, an ‘Alarm’ notification was triggered indicating ‘Navigational Equipment Status – Abnormal’
The above two use cases are just a sneak peek into the tremendous value SMART Notification can bring to the users of the SMARTShip™ platform. With SMART Notification, vessel operators, charterers and other maritime executives have real-time access to ship operations providing instantaneous value realization to all stakeholders through integrated insights, transparency and enhanced collaboration
The benefits of SMART Notification are limitless. To summarize, with SMART Notifications users have:
The ability to receive SMART Notifications through the SMARTShip Go mobile application is an added benefit for the user. This ensures that safety and compliance of the vessel is maintained throughout the year and at any given point in time.
