Streamlined Data Input for Automated TM-7 S31 Reports in UTM Reporting App


This guide is designed to streamline the process of entering data for automated TM-7 S31 reports in the UTM Reporting app. Its primary goal is to ensure accurate compliance with the reporting standards of the Classification Society, with a specific focus on recording thickness measurements of Cargo Hold Sideshell.


Maritime professionals using the UTM Reporting app collect on-site data regarding the thickness measurements of Cargo Hold Sideshell. Their objective is to achieve automatic data population in TM-7 S31 during the survey report generation process.

Data Input Procedure for Automatic TM-7 S31 Generation in UTM App

1. Link Structural Members such as Hold Frames to TM-7 S31

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 S31 for Thickness Measurement

5. Record Basic Information for Thickness Measurement

6. Choosing the General Location: Zones A, B, C, or D for TM-7 S31 Form.

This selection will automatically route the thickness measurement data to the corresponding Zone in the TM-7 S31 form, ensuring organized data presentation.

7. Select the Transverse Frame Number for Measurement

8. Select the Cargo Hold space number for Measurement

Selecting the Cargo Hold number for taking measurements directs the data to the TM-7 S31 form, streamlining thickness measurement comparisons.

9. Review and Confirm data linked to the Thickness Marker

10. Repeat Adding Thickness Markers to the Blueprint

Data Structure in TM-7 S31 Form - Post Report Generation

• Within the TM-7 S31 Form, data is structured in rows, and the common value for all rows is the transverse frame number.

• This organized format enables a comprehensive analysis of thickness measurements for different Zones within the cargo hold, simplifying the assessment of the cargo hold's overall condition and the thickness measurements in its different sections.

This guide streamlines the data entry process for TM-7 S31 reports in the UTM Reporting app, ensuring compliance with Classification Society standards. It focuses on recording Cargo Hold Sideshell thickness measurements, benefiting maritime professionals in survey report generation. Data is organized by transverse frame numbers and Zones A, B, C, or D for effective analysis of cargo hold condition and section-specific measurements.
