Decision support systems for onboard use are many and varied. Primary role of such systems is to alleviate burden of processing of ship and environment data and ultimately to help crew in making informed decisions. Effectiveness of such processing could not be more important than during crises situations. This article presents with a prototype of an ergonomic decision support function for provision of advisory to the crew for enhancing their instantaneous preparedness for response to a distressed flooding situation. It is argued that inculcation of crew preparedness is the most effective tool for avoiding and managing flooding crises, should they occur.
