Teekay is currently running the Oracle version of the NS5 software, and MSC says that the company required a reporting solution that could operate on this database platform, which MSC was able to achieve by extending its standard reporting product to provide support for Oracle.
In addition to the reporting warehouse, Teekay has also selected approximately two dozen standard reports for NS5, as well as a number of custom designed reports.
The reporting system also includes a 'team concept' which allows the reports be run on groups of vessels (i.e. teams), allowing report generation across many different groups of vessels at once.
Teekay joins Helix Energy Solutions Group and Seaspan Ship Management in adopting MSC software products for use with NS5.
As well as using MSC Reporting, Helix has taken delivery of a system which allows it to use its own incident reporting forms and combine them with the standard NS5 incident forms. These additional forms allow Helix to collect incident data which is specific to its operation and perform trending analysis.
Seaspan Ship Management will also use the MSC Reporting system for internally generated reporting, as part of a customised package of reports provided by MSC covering areas like Maintenance, Purchasing, Inventory, Quality and Crewing.
