Operation and maintenance are the main
elements in every operational activity of the ship.
Inadequacy in terms of ship engine maintenance could
increase the rates of failures in the equipment that could
lead to environmental problems, altering the
performance, and would possibly create a large impact
of business loss over the decline of availability on the
vessels, increasing the downtime, and also potentially
broaden the potential for major accidents that occur
and endangering lives on board. The main engine on the
ship is not only the most important part but also the
most dominant component that often undergo
problems. In actual conditions, the damage that occurs
to an engine is very complex and would lead to fatality if
there is a lack of proper monitoring and maintenance
activities to be carried out when the ship is in
operational condition. Before repairs are to be made
onto the damage suffered by the ship's diesel engine, it
is necessary to detect any damage to the engine in prior.
