Abstract : This report is the Phase I final report of the National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP) project (Project Number 4-94-1) to evaluate world-class shipbuilders' existing CAD/CAM/CIM system implementations. Five U.S. shipyards participated in this study along with personnel from University of Michigan, Proteus Engineering, and Cybo Robots. Project participants have backgrounds in design, computer-aided design (CAD), manufacturing processes, computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), production planning, and computer-integrated manufacturing/management (CIM). The results of this evaluation provided the basis for the CAD/CAM/CIM Workshop presented in conjunction with the 1996 Ship Production Symposium, and will be used as background in Phase II of the project to develop requirements for future shipbuilding CAD/CAM/CIM systems.
