Hard problems demand

Soft(ware) solutions

Make no mistake, the commercial maritime industry will always revolve around heavy duty machinery and mega-machines designed to weather some of the toughest operating condi- tions on earth. But in recent years a proliferation of Software Solutions has evolved to help the machines operate more ef? ciently and cost effectively. MR editors report on latest devel- opments in maritime speci? c Software Solutions.
