Abstract:

Shipyard Managers face a difficult task in deciding how much up-front preparations to afford in approaching a ship construction contract. While there are arguments in favor of extensive preparations as an eventual cost saver during the subsequent production activities such preparations are expensive and require thoughtful decisions on just exactly what should be provided. This Project was designed to answer some of the questions associated with such preparations. Interviews were conducted with the production segment of a shipyard to identify in detail what items of support they felt they would need to receive from the other segments of the shipyard in order for the production processes and activities to be carried out most productively.
