In fact, the "Vessel Monitoring System procedural washing project" started back in 2016, in line with the footsteps of NASA, the airline industry, governments and the medical profession in introducing the Lovoy method to make its procedures and key documentation more user-friendly.

When we started this project in 2016, we knew it would be challenging. The aim was to reduce our VMS in size, making it clear, concise and user friendly yet ensuring the technical and business critical content is maintained. Thanks to the hard work of Arun and Aavishkar we have been able to achieve that and complete the project to such a high standard.

....Mike Bradshaw, Global Head of HSEQ, said.

According to V. Group, the applied styles and formatting rules of the Lovoy method were originally developed by NASA and was initiated in the airline industry with impressive results.

What is more, the initiative aims to deliver more concise information and make it more user-friendly for seafarers.

For the records, the project came after listening to comments from seafarers, who said that V.Group’s procedures were too complex.

We believe the new format of the VMS will be well received by all our colleagues when the updated version is released this month. The successful completion of this project is all part of our goal is to continually help simplify and improve the information.
