This study demonstrated the advantages of applying the Deming cycle methodology to establish a standard for unmanned autonomous vessels in Taiwan. This study used Taiwan’s marine engine room statistics to analyze factors related to marine engine room accidents. The Deming cycle was then repeated to make practical decisions. The statistics indicated that most engine room accidents are concentrated in administrative task performance, maintenance work, and complex systems and are mostly caused by human error. Furthermore, these results indicate that the appropriate establishment of the Deming cycle methodology can enhance decision making for the marine engine room through introduction of a standard for unmanned autonomous vessels.

Keywords: Unmanned Autonomous Vessel, Deming Cycle, Marine accident, Taiwan
