IMO RESOLUTION MSC.191(79) PERFORMANCE STANDARDS FOR THE PRESENTATION OF NAVIGATION-RELATED INFORMATION ON SHIPBORNE NAVIGATIONAL DISPLAYS

These performance standards harmonize the requirements for the presentation of navigation-related information on the bridge of a ship to ensure that all navigational displays adopt a consistent human machine interface philosophy and implementation. These performance standards supplement and, in case of a conflict, take priority over, presentation requirements of the individual performance standards adopted by the Organization for relevant navigational systems and equipment, and cover the presentation of navigation-related information by equipment for which performance standards have not been adopted.

Module C covers the requirements for Alarm Management on the bridge. The guidelines avoid unnecessary distraction of the bridge team by redundant and superfluous audible an dvisual alarm announcements, and reduces the cognitive load of the operator. The principles in these guidelines can be adapted to the alarm management system of the mooring winch control panel.
