Plan of Intended Movement (PIM) Basics Prior  to  any  ship  getting  under  way,  a  PIM  must  be  formed.  Normally, the  senior  Quartermaster  and  the  navigator  will  discuss  the  best  possible routes  for  the  ship  to  follow.  Messages  are  then  sent  to  group commanders  and  the  ship  gets  under  way.  As  the  QMOW,  you  will  be tasked  with  tracking  the  ship’s  progress. Tracking  is  directly  related  to  time,  speed,  and  distance  calculation. Figure  8-6  represents  a  ships  track  with  PIM  times  and  dates  annotated. As  a  rule,  PIM  is  laid  out  for  every  4  hours  GMT.  When  referring  to the  ship’s  position  in  relation  to  PIM,  you  should  express  any  values  as time  ahead  or  behind  PIM.  Let’s  look  at  an  example. Figure  8-6.  Example  PIM  calculation. 8-12
