Efficient Data Entry for Automated TM-7 Reports in UTM Reporting App


This guide is tailored to assist users in seamlessly entering data for the automatic generation of TM-7 reports in the UTM Reporting app. The primary aim is to ensure precise compliance with the Classification Society's reporting standards, with a specific focus on recording thickness measurements of Cargo Hold Transverse Frames.


Maritime professionals who use the UTM Reporting app are engaged in on-site data collection of thickness measurements for Cargo Hold Transverse Frames. Their goal is to achieve automatic data population in TM-7 when generating survey reports.

Data Input Procedure for Automatic TM-7 Generation in UTM App

1. Link Structural Members such as Hold Frames and Hold Frame Brackets to TM-7

2. Create a unique Cargo Hold item in the room/space tab for each Cargo Hold number

3. Access the Blueprint, Zoom In, and Add Markers

4. Select the Structural member linked to TM-7 for Thickness Measurement

Selecting the Structural member linked to TM-7 for taking measurements directs the data to the TM-7 form.

5. Record Basic Information for Thickness Measurement

6. Choosing the General Location: Upper, Mid, or Lower Part for TM-7 Form

This selection will automatically route the thickness measurement data to the corresponding column in the TM-7 form, ensuring it lands in the right place, whether it's in the "Upper part," "Mid part," or "Lower part."

7. Select the Cargo Hold space number for Measurement

Selecting the Cargo Hold number for taking measurements directs the data to the TM-7 form, streamlining thickness measurement comparisons and ensuring organized data presentation in TM-7.

8. Review and Confirm data linked to the Thickness Marker

9. Repeat Adding Thickness Markers to the Blueprint

Data Structure in TM-7 Form - Post Report Generation

• In the TM-7 Form, data is organized into rows, with each row representing a specific structural member, and the selected structural member serving as the common value for all rows in the form.

• This structured arrangement allows for a detailed analysis of thickness measurements at various levels within the cargo hold, including the upper part, mid part, and lower part.

• It simplifies the comparison of measurements taken at different levels, aiding in the assessment of the cargo hold's overall condition and the thickness measurements across its various sections.

In summary, the streamlined data input process in the UTM Reporting app for TM-7 simplifies the recording of Cargo Hold Transverse Frames' thickness measurements. This alignment with Classification Society standards benefits maritime professionals in generating survey reports efficiently.
