Fleet Technology (Canada) in partnership with Real Time Engineering (UK) offer the RealTime2000 TM Program for mission readiness in the Year 2000, to ship operators across North America.
Since 1997, Real Time has been successfully delivering the RealTime2000™ program to a varied customer base in Europe. They have become a recognized leader in tackling the Year 2000 problem as it affects real-time and embedded systems. Fleet Technology has been working on the Year 2000 problem for ship owners in Canada. Now working together, this Team offers skills in all types and stages of Year 2000 projects to ship operators across North America.
It is now apparent that the chances of a serious (even safety related) Year 2000 failure are small. However, it is clear that the effects of such failure can be significant. If you are hit by any Year 2000 failure, the consequences of it will result in you being judged by the due diligence you applied to your program. So, if you have left your program too late or are still concerned about its completeness, the RealTime2000™ program can help you demonstrate quickly that you have applied due diligence to your efforts.
Many small and medium-sized companies have made little or no preparation for the Year 2000. At present they do not know the risk they are exposed to, nor are they aware of any quick wins that could mitigate that risk. It was found that many organizations’ contingency measures are inadequate to deal with Year 2000 failures. A new Continuity2000 program supports the development of realistic and comprehensive contingency measures within a short period of time, and the development of specific plans to manage the transitions through the key dates. Any failures or shutdowns that occur during the rollover period will tend to be blamed on Year 2000 failures. If these problems are not properly investigated, and the root cause is not established, they could occur again.
