Star Project offers ship managers and owners easy access to information necessary to maintain control over major ship works and deliver successful projects on time and on budget. The system is designed to streamline the project planning and specification process and integrates with Microsoft Project for resources and workflow planning.
Star Project enables ship managers to identify repair items, make reliable repair plans, and generate accurate specifications. The system makes it easy to include documents and data from various sources, including previous projects, into the specification.
Star Project allows for systematic quote comparison in order to find the best suppliers. Quotations are imported or manually entered into the system, and can be compared item-by-item or in a predefined setup. Contract and data entry can be standardized to ensure repair agreements are in compliance with industry regulations.
Star Project is designed to report work done into the Star Maintenance module. At the end of a project, all project history and items are filed in the project account, making it easy to track work and reuse information in later projects. Project data can also be used for KPI’s and reporting.
Star Project’s graphical user interface facilitates easy learning, understanding and usage. Wizards and terminology used in the system can be configured to match company and industry standards.
Star Project can be used as a stand-alone solution or in interaction with an office based hub for fleet management. Data from the vessel is replicated to the hub using SIS’ highly reliable replication engine. When used in the office, Star Project provides a full overview of fleet maintenance projects, including detailed information for each vessel and project. Project routines and instructions can be updated and distributed to multiple vessels, and internal messaging and notifications facilitate for knowledge sharing.
