MIT Announces Spring

Program In Port Planning,

Development, Engineering

The Advanced Study Program of

MIT's Center for Advanced Engi- neering Study is offering a 16-week graduate level program for practic- ing port planners and engineers di- rected by E. G. Frankel, professor of Ocean Systems, a well-known port planner and engineer, senior advisor on ports to the International

Maritime Organization, and former- ly port and shipping advisor at the

World Bank. The program allows concentration in the broad areas of port planning, port management, port development, port construction management, port engineering, and port maintenance.

Activities are tailored to the back- ground and needs of each partici- pant. MIT offers over one thousand courses. Electives will be chosen af- ter consultation with Professor

Frankel and other faculty mem- bers. Courses may be taken for cred- it or as an auditor.

The program provides study of- fices, a project facility, computer facilities, videotape library and viewing facilities, and social activi- ties for participants. Participants

MMS Delivers Planned

Maintenance System For

Canarctic Icebreaker

Marine Management Systems (MMS) recently implemented their

Planned Maintenance (PMS) sys- tem aboard an icebreaker owned by

Canarctic Shipping, Ltd, of Ottawa,

Canada, according to an announce- ment made by MMS vice president,

Don Logan.

Operating under a contract awarded through the Marine Man- agement Centre (MMC) in London,

England, the PMS system was in- stalled aboard the M/V Arctic, a

Grade 4 icebreaker/oil bulk ore car- rier/research ship. The Arctic oper- ates in the northern Canadian re- gions where on-the-spot mainte- nance procedures are vital and oper- ating costs are high, making planned maintenance a crucial con- cern.

Canarctic engineers were trained by MMS technical staff in Stam- ford, Conn., and the system was installed by MMC personnel. Full shipboard IBM PC/AT computer configuration and ongoing support for the project will be handled by


Founded in 1969, MMS is a leader in providing computerized manage- ment information systems for the shipping industry. The PMS Sys- tem is part of MMS' Ship Manage- ment Information Series of systems for shoreside and shipboard use.
