Before a vessel can be used with CCM, with or without XRF, that vessel’s engine and cylinders must be appropriately configured to work properly.

Configuring a Vessel

To configure a vessel for CCM,

  1. Click the Accounts tile.

  2. Search the vessel you are trying to configure for CCM.

  3. Click the vessel name to open the in the Account Editor.

  4. Scroll down until you see the "Business Lines" tile on the right side. Mouse-over the tile until you see a pencil icon appear. Click the Pencil.

  5. On the next screen, check the box “Is CCM Enabled”.

  6. Click Save to save the changes.


Configuring An Engine

Once a vessel is configured, the assets to be used in conjunction must be configured properly. A Marine Engine asset first needs to be configured. The CCM workflows are only available for engines with the Service Type attribute set to “ME – Slow Speed – Crosshead”. Once Service Type has been selected, the checkbox for CCM Enabled must be checked.

To configure the Asset:

  1. Click the Assets Tile

  2. Search the Asset.

  3. Click the matching result to the Asset you are trying to modify.

  4. Click Edit in the top-right corner.

  5. In the Attributes section, check the box that says Is CCM enabled?

  6. Click the Save button at the bottom of the screen.

Once Is CCM Enabled is checked, the attributes for CCM become visible. These are:

  • Has XRF

  • RBM at MCR

  • kW at MCR

  • Current Feed Rate

  • Target Feed Rate Bore Size

  • Stroke Length

  • Lubricator Type

  • Model Version

  • Engine Series

  • Number of Cylinders

Configuring Cylinders

Once an engine has been configured, each cylinder on the engine must be configured as Marine – Scrapedown assets, or created if they are not already in the account. Before continuing, to associate the cylinders as children of the Marine – Engine asset, the Asset Key of the Marine – Engine asset is required.

On each Marine – Scrapedown asset, in the attribute Parent Asset Key, the user must enter the Asset Key of the Marine – Engine asset.

The Marine – Scrapedown asset class only requires two fields for CCM: Cylinder Number and Engine Field Key. Cylinder Number should be the cylinder of the asset. The Engine Field Key associates the Cylinder Data workflow with the parent Engine Data workflow on the Marine – Engine asset, and should be filled out with “CYL_X_BOT”, where X is the cylinder number.

Configuring a Day Tank

If a vessel is CCM Enabled and will be using an XRF instrument, a Marine – Day Tank asset must be created as a part of the children assets related to the Marine – Engine asset.

Once configured, all a Marine – Day Tank asset requires for configuration is the Marine – Engine asset’s asset key in the Parent Asset Key field, the same as the Marine – Scrapedown assets. This asset exists as a home for sample results from a day tank in comparison to those from a cylinder when using an XRF instrument.
