DEXTER ™

How it works

Automating Data Analytics

DEXTER’s analytical capabilities are unprecedented in a  real-time Windows-based shipboard package. DEXTER provides real-time, on-demand advice to your crews when something starts to go wrong with the machinery. It works completely automatically in the background of your shipboard computer network, much like the anti-virus software on your computer. DEXTER continually acquires and analyzes machinery data to ensure optimal, trouble-free operation. All alert information can also be input to your computerized maintenance management system., perhaps even automatically generating work orders for corrective action if you like. The system interfaces to all machinery automation and control systems on the market today, further leveraging your investment by layering DEXTER’s intelligent processing on top.
