Every Day checks in Engine Room Rounds from Funnel to Tunnel on Ship

When
a duty engineer is taking rounds, half of the problems or troubleshooting can
be done by them, if they check the items below given properly. This is for a
specific ship, so some things can vary, but mostly things will be same. This
piece of information gives idea to the engineer as what they have to and what
not to.

This
is also useful when the engine room is being put in to UMS operations.
