Abstract : The general objective of SOCP's RAM Database/SHIPNET is to provide a sound basis for improving the safety, reliability, cost effectiveness and overall quality of marine machinery used onboard merchant vessels. This project is being conducted to establish an integrated RAM database to compile, process, analyze and disseminate field data from merchant ships. This field data collection to populate the database is a two step process. Initially, the data for past maintenance activities will be collected for target equipment and systems from existing maintenance records. Then, upon full implementation of the SHIPNET programs, data will also be collected for all SOCP defined critical equipment and systems.
