Data is the basis for improvement

Logging data feeds the engineers on shore and challenges the development department to come with advanced ship designs; continuous improvement based on collected data. Collecting data is just the start, analysing the data and making it useful information gives Damen Shipyards the proper understanding of the exact usage of the sailing ships.

Deployment of the ships

The dashboard shows exactly where the vessel has sailed last week and what kind of work the ship did; the percentages display the time sailing and waiting and the corresponding locations. This – combined with the weather conditions and other relevant information – offers the required detail information of the deployment of every individual ship. The gathered data is used by Damen Shipyards to come to better ship designs.
