Abstract:

Shipbuilding as currently practiced in U.S. commercial shipyards employs little quantitative modelling or analysis in production planning. This paper presents a brief discussion of the shipbuilding process and focusses on one major component which is referred to as outfitting. The outfit planning problem is described in detail and then formally modelled as a generalization of the resource constrained project scheduling problem. The value of the approach as well as barriers to its adoption are also discussed. Author
