Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) software is a technological tool designed to optimize and simplify the management of maritime or river transport fleets, whether for passenger or cargo transportation. It enables managers or crews to track, plan, and document preventive and corrective maintenance tasks, ensuring that all operations comply with manufacturer standards and recommended timelines.


This software may include features such as inventory management of spare parts and equipment, intervention history tracking, periodic inspection planning, and performance report generation. By centralizing and automating these tasks, CMMS software aims to reduce vessel downtime, enhance onboard safety, extend equipment lifespan, and optimize voyages both offshore and coastal.
