The developers of the manual attempted to collect and assemble a multitude or ideas and techniques involved with shipbuilding all haying the common directive or DesignProduction Integration. Their intent however was not only to collect these ideas but to also present them in such a manner as to assist you and your organization in a re-thinking process concerning shipbuilding design and production.
