It is very important to use an integrated software system for effective calculation of KPIs for TMSA compliance. Most KPIs specified in the OCIMF questionnaire require the processing of data that are derived from multiple software modules and the execution of specific algorithmic calculations on that data. If the modules are not integrated then the automatic calculation of the KPIs is impossible and can only be performed manually, a process that will take a considerable amount of time.

The Environmental Management System has a central role in shipping companies, not only as managerial instrument of environmental and safety complexity inside and outside to the activity of the company, but also as way to change the environmental constraints in business opportunity, to reduce the costs and to save resources, and to face on the markets with systematic nature the competition.

Factors that drive shipping companies in this direction:

  1. the costs and the environmental responsibilities;
  2. the competition;
  3. the evaluation of the environmental engagement on behalf of shareholders;
  4. the national and community regulations.
  1. QA procedures are the first step of a long process for a company to set up the procedures for quality operation.
  2. The definition of corporate goals in a unique and measurable way is the next step.
  3. The continuous monitoring of goal achievement, the identification of deviation, the monitoring of corrective actions and their results is the third step.
  4. The final step is to evaluate the risk of not achieving the goal at every operation and take the necessary cost effective controls to minimise the risk.

The above steps are the key elements of the continuous improvement process, i.e. Improve Plan Measure Act.
