    • The software works well with a computer system equipped with at least the following features, such as an i5 processor and a 4GB video card with 4GB RAM. However, a better simulator performance can be achieved with the computer with better hardware. The means of better computer is to have better features of RAM, storage space, and graphic card.
      • RAM: 4MB RAM, i7 processor
      • Free Hard Disk Space: 256GB
      • Display Card: DirectX 10 compatible with GPU, 4 GB

All SERS engine room components, i.e. valves, pumps, pump controls, ON/OFF buttons, navigating between panels, etc. are activated with one mouse click. Therefore, as it is fully compatible with touch screen monitors, users do not need a keyboard for operating any of the aforementioned engine room component functions.
    General Software Specfications
    • The software language is English in accordance with IMO training standards and the maritime terms used are in accordance with the technical vocabulary and writing rules used in the practical English language in the sector. In fact, IMO STCW 2010 Competency for English is included in the certification of the ClassNK to promote this competency in the IMO level trainings.
    Table A-III/1.2 Use English in written and oral form
    • At least 1 administrator user is defined in the simulator software entry.
    • Administrator can create new users with name, password, and user level (e.g. Trainer, Administrator, Trainee, etc.)
    • An administrator level user can delete any user account.
    • Setup and administrator functions are detailed in SERS User Manual Volume I.

Trainee or Instructor can use these files for briefing later. Briefing/Debriefing files consist of files that can be opened with standard Windows application programs, displayed, deleted with Windows operating system features or transferred to another environment, with user name, surname, ID and time content with date and second accuracy. When these files are used, it can be displayed visually which actions the trainee took in which time flow.
    • During the operation of the simulator, a training report with name, surname, ID and time sensitive accurate to date and seconds is automatically generated for each training. The resulting training report is according to the historical order of the trainee’s actions and has the features that action times can be derived.
