Hello and greetings from TheNavalArch
We are glad to publish a new article titled Removing Human Error in Ship Performance Analysis
The article focuses on how human errors in ship performance reports affect the ship’s performance analysis and the means of reducing the same to get a good prediction model.
An excerpt is presented below:
Ship performance analysis means the ability to predict the power and fuel consumption of a ship in any given condition of the draft (or displacement), speed and weather conditions. When the ship is new, sea trial curves, though with limited speed range and draft range give good estimation. However, for an older vessel, this needs to be estimated from the recent observed data report by the ship either through noon report or real-time report. Since the accuracy of the model is dependent on the reported data, error in this would reduce the accuracy of the model.
