The IMS Editor is Windows-based
software for primary use by measurers to edit, store and distribute
data. It is compatible with the ORC Manager software used by rating
officers for production of ORC International and ORC Club certificates,
as well as its designer's version that includes complete calculations
using the ORC VPP (Velocity Prediction Program).
The IMS Editor covers all measurements using the International
Measurement System (IMS) including complete sail and measurement
inventories and declared rig controls and other data. A tooltip within
the program contains information about each field. It can be used for
complete or partial measurement with an easy option to "merge" measured
data to the existing boat data. Measurers can print all or partial
amounts of data as a formal measurement record, and then submit the data
in a DXT file by e-mail to the rating officers and preserve the signed
papers for the record.
For simulation and testing purposes, the software can also be used by
owners and project managers to submit data to designers who have the ORC
