Register for the TRB 99th Annual Meeting: Register Now


Cost savings that can be realized are examined for two types of systems-bridge control of machinery with subsidiary localized (Engineroom) controls and with a more or less extensive system of automatic monitoring and alarm signaling; and centralized controls in the engineroom with a degree of automatic monitoring and/or data logging. The factors of reduced manning and less shoreside maintenance are considered. Details are given of the savings analysis made by the General Electric Co for its central Operations Systems, and a comparison is made with other studies showing only marginal economic benefits.
