Bulk Stowage Planning
Autoload SPS Bulk is a state-of-the-art, integrated, graphical, stowage planning and strength calculation for cargo officers. As a voyage-based program, Autload SPS Bulk provides control over ship loading throuhout the complete voyage.
Autoload SPS Bulk has two main modes: hold mode, and a hydrostatics engine mode.
Hold Mode - and Cargo Loading
The Hold Mode interface includes the Cargo Line Up window, the Stowage window (a complete profile of all holds), and the Hold window (a detailed view of any selected hold). Ports of call are shown along the bottom of the screen. Commodity and port databases are easily edited by the program user. A real-time summary of key hydrostatic values can be displayed on the screen.
Loading is accomplished by selecting cargo in the cargo list and dragging it to a hold/hatch. The program uses cargo properties, including angle of repose and stowage factor, to form the cargo pile. User-definable stowage options include trimmed surface, and the choice between pile-centering in either the center of the hatch, or spread across the hatch area. The 3-D Viewer shows, in detail, either a single hold or all holds together. At a given port of call, the loading condition can be instantly changed from Arrival to Departure.
Autoload SPS Bulk includes a DNV and Lloyds -approved hydrostatic engine, which enables trim, stability and strenght assessment for any loading condition whether in port or ar sea. The main window shows profile, plan, and body views of the ship in the loaded condition, as well as calculated hydrostatic values. The Hydrostatics module calculates stability as fuel and consumables are used, makes use of optimal ballast, and evaluates strength and satbility uin intact, damaged or grounded conditions. The program can compare observed displacement, obtained from draft surveys, against the simulated condition. The calculated vessel condition is also compared against preset strength and stability limits. Local strength and grain stability calculations are also available.
Onboard installations of Autoload SPS Bulk can include an interface with tank and draft sensors. This interface allows real time monitoring of tank loading and drafts. Sensor connections can be taken offline in case of reading errors, or if the program operator wishes to simulate "what-if" scenarios.
Autoload SPS Bulk can interface with your company's informations system. Please contact us for details.
Cargo reports include stowage plan (either for an individual hold or all holds), cargo summary, and loading sequence. Loading sequence reports include vessel load/unload sequences and terminal unloading sequence. The hydrostatics reports include loading summary, longitudinal strength and stability data. Reports can be customized to the user's specific requirements. All reports can be printed or exported to standard word processing and spreadsheet programs, and then distributed electronically or printed.
