    Improvement of the Information Management Systems

    Phase 4.1: Setting minimum requirements of PCS and communication system

    Setting the minimum requirements to be covered by every implemented PCS and intra-port communication system

    The project will not create new models of harmonisation, but it will be based on previously developed ones. A document including the different works and official recommendations and guidelines shall be drafted. The document shall include explicit recommendations for the project itself.
    The minimum requirements to be fulfilled by each PCS shall be defined jointly.

    Each port shall report on its current situation (study/report), and on the modifications, improvements, acquisitions and new developments which are to be implemented (specific improvement action plan) in order to comply with the minimum requirements established. Finally, a specific plan for each port will be approved, as well as the bases for developing an intra-port intra-comm.

    Start date: 2013-04-05
    End date:   2013-08-31

    Phase 4.2: Implementation of PCS in all the harbours

    This phase includes the establishment of the PCS in every harbour according to each individual scheme. It involves all the improvements to be made for the external client who will benefit from the service and the internal management improvements to guarantee it. Although each port will be responsible for implementing this phase, special care must be taken to promote Communication among the different partner teams to ensure synergies.
