Abstract : Fifth Annual REAPS Symposium on the application of computer and automation technology. The REAPS Program is a US shipbuilding industry/Maritime Administration cooperative effort whose goal is the improvement of shipbuilding productivity through the application of computer aids and production technology. The Eighth Annual REAPS Technical Symposium held June 27 and 28 1978 in St Louis Missouri represents one element of the Program which is designed to provide industry with the opportunity to review new developments in shipyard technology The Symposium was attended by representatives of some 63 shipyards and supporting organizations. We are indebted to the many people at St Louis Shipbuilding and at McDonnell Douglas who were involved in the plant tours offered to symposium registrants. Their efforts and those of their respective managements in authorizing the tours are sincerely appreciated. The 1978 REAPS Technical Symposium Proceedings contain most of the papers presented at the meeting. The agenda in Appendix A indicates topics and speakers; Appendix B is a list of symposium attendees.
