Texas Instruments has an- nounced the new TI Marine Busi- ness System designed to give fleet managers a promising new home office tool for improving vessel oper- ating efficiency. Designed to utilize information logged by a TI 8000 Integrated Marine System installed on individual vessels, the system permits managers to download information to a Texas Instruments Professional Computer, and to apply advanced computer spreadsheet capabilities to the analysis of vessel operation.
"With the TI Marine Business System interfaced to a Texas Instruments PC equipped with Lotus 1-2-3 software, fleet managers can use a variety of spreadsheet techniques to study a broad spectrum of vessel operating parameters—from speed and fuel efficiency to engine life and crew performance," said Gary Howe, marketing manager for Texas Instruments Marine Products.
The company reports the system was created to help vessel owners and managers make the most of the information logged by their TI 8000 Integrated Marine System. It provides a complete, easy-to-use system for monitoring and maximizing vessel operating efficiency, particularly with regard to fuel efficiency.
Mr. Howe also reported recent studies for some major fleet operators indicate a fuel savings of up to 25 percent.
Information can be analyzed and correlated in a variety of ways—by vessel, by captain, or by trip. Totals and averages can be calculated for each category. With the addition of word processing and file management software, the user can generate files, reports, charts, and graphs for further study.
The new system consists of TI Marine Business System software, a TI 8010 Command Module, a power supply, cables, and operating manual.
A Tl Professional Computer with appropriate software and peripherals is also required.
