MARINTEK uses the catman Enterprise for collection of all measurement data during a trial run. The software manages the whole trial run workflow. It collects values from the model and is able to create calculated channels by carrying out calculations on several concurrent channels in real time. For evaluation of the collected data they use special software made by themselves.
One very great advantage is that catman Enterprise can be run without having an MGCplus on-line. It is possible to sit at your desk and create measurement channel lists in advance. Afterwards you simply load the channels into the real equipment, press “Play”, and the measurement runs.
Another very great advantage of the catman system is that a complex measurement with many channels can be split into several subprojects, enabling several technicians to work on their own channel subset, and saving it as a subproject. This makes things go much faster than if one was forced to work with all the, for example 50-200 channels at once that a large oceanic project takes.
Also, the customer can be seated at a client terminal in our courtesy room and view a limited set of channels, without being able to change any values. And if that wasn’t enough, the customer can actually be anywhere on the Internet. That’s a very great advantage.
