Technical barriers on board a vessel are critical to prevent disasters or major accidents from happening.
To have an operational barrier system, you need to know which equipment is a member of a barrier, how this equipment should work in a critical situation, its expected performance standard, and its current ability to meet this performance standard. In STAR EAM, unlike most other maintenance software, you may tag the equipment as a technical barrier and assign it to the barrier system(s) it is a member of. And set the required performance standard.
The performance standard report requirement includes how and when to check and verify the condition of the barrier system equipment. The related inspections and maintenance tasks describe how you should carry out the check and report it. If the performance standard is not met or the equipment is down for maintenance, you may use color-coding to warn about non-performing barriers.
Using the STAR EAM System, you control that the performance of your equipment is up to the correct standard, and the system tells you how to keep your units safe during the repair. The corrective job is reported in the system for historical and retrospective matters, according to international requirements and standards.
