The research work presented in this paper addresses issues related to ship inspection and maintenance through the development of a novel platform as part of the INCASS (Inspection Capabilities for Enhanced Ship Safety) project. INCASS addresses ship safety including structural and machinery monitoring, data gathering, reliability analysis and decision support. As part of the above, a case study on the machinery monitoring will be presented in this paper. The analysis involves ship’s main engine, lubrication and starting sub-systems and various components and failure modes. The case study presents the working state reliability performance on system, sub-system and components levels.
