Broad and practical guidelines are necessary on how an LCM system for a port structure can be set up and run from the beginning until the system is phased out at the end of the service life of the structure.
The owner particularly needs a comprehensive database recording the history of the establishment and life of the port structures up to the present date, as well as of the works and developments carried out over the years by the application of LCM. And where a large number of structures are included in the inspection program, application of the contemporary database computer software offers numerous advantages over traditional ways of collecting and storing inspection data.
In accordance with the LCM report by WG31, the outline of the guidelines for the establishment and operation of the LCM system and an example of computerized database in Los Angels Port are presented.
