Abstract:

Livingston Shipbuilding is a medium to small shipbuilding complex that builds both conventional marine vessels and offshore drilling equipment. We have been involved with Numerical Control Lofting for over three 3 years and have built three 3 jack-up drilling rigs, two 2 drill ships, a Great Lakes products carrier and processed several industrial products, contracts with the NC controlled burning machine. The Engineering Hull Section is responsible for the loading of the data base with SPADES HULLAD program. This program defines the locations of decks, sight edges, longitudinal bulkheads and all structures that Comprise a marine vessel. This program is easy to implement and the Hull Section draftsmen are used as programmers for establishing this important part of the ships data base.
