In case of abnormal result, MES engineers diagnose the result in detail. Management in real time and uniform management of engine data: Firm communication between our customer and our engineer using Q&A system, consolidation of information and offering search/browsing services of technical information on the web-site can reduce data management work on our customer's part. MES-EPOCH: it is an electronic cylinder indication pressure analyzer and system which can upload measurement data into a portable computer and measure engine output and make a graph of cylinder pressure. The coordination function of data with e-GICS which can computerize the measurement data allows for smooth and easy transfer of data analysis between ships and ship managers.
