The broad aim of this paper is to discuss what can be done by the shipowner to assist the ship repairer and vice versa, particularly in matters affecting routine yearly maintenance, mandatory surveys, and conversions. These are three areas in which the owner can substantially improve his relationship with the repairer, without having to sacrifice any internal financial controls or technical supervision. The Author, of the Lips-Keller company, discusses the steps that the shipowner can take to improve this relationship, particularly in respect to work on engines and other machinery, under the headings: Specification; Diagnostic Testing; Testing Programme (some information on the BP Tanker Company's condition-monitoring system is included); Technical Data (i.e., availability of maintenance-manuals and drawings); Spare Parts; Repair Hours; Extras; Relations with the Repairer. The ship repairer's viewpoint is discussed under the headings: Planning; Computer Utilization. Order from: BSRA as No. 48,032.
