This part of IEC 62923 specifies the operational and performance requirements, methods of testing, and required test results for the bridge alert management (BAM) in support of IMO resolution MSC.302(87). It is applicable to all alerts presented on and transferred to the bridge.
NOTE All text of this document whose wording is identical to that of IMO resolution MSC.302(87) is printed in italics, and the resolution and associated performance standard paragraph numbers are indicated in brackets.
(MSC.302/2) To enhance the safety of operation, the Performance standards given in resolution MSC.302(87) provide requirements for the harmonized presentation and treatment of alerts on the bridge and specify a central alert management (CAM) system.
Annex E provides guidance on design principles that, when applied, will achieve the desired enhancement of safety.
(MSC.302/3) Module A (Clause 6) of this document describes the general concept of the BAM and the presentation of alerts on the bridge equipment. Modules B (Clause 7) and D (Clause 9) contain requirements for the CAM and the CAM-HMI. Module C (Clause 8) describes the interface requirements for BAM.
BAM is a concept that imposes requirements on equipment that handles and presents alerts on the bridge, including equipment that provides central alert management (CAM) system functionalities.
• Equipment is BAM compliant if it meets Module A - Presentation and handling of alerts on the bridge and Module C - Interfacing of this document.
• Equipment is CAM system compliant if it is BAM compliant equipment and, in addition, meets Module B - Central alert management system functionality and Module D - System and equipment documentation for CAM system of this document.
To support retrofitting a ship with BAM compliant equipment handling alert related communication with remaining non-BAM compliant equipment (referred to as "legacy alert sources"), this document includes guidance on how to interface BAM compliant equipment with remaining devices that are not BAM compliant (see 4.4 and Annex H).
IEC 62923-2 provides standardized alert and cluster identifiers and other additional features.
