Abstract:

The overall objective of this NSRP project has been to develop a library of process modeling components to be used for discrete event simulation of shipbuilding operations. The project has focused on the operations involved with initial plate processing. These processes were found to be similar among different shipyards, making the results of this work applicable to a broad audience. The library of process model components has been incorporated into an interactive web site. This provides a means of access to process simulation to people who may not be knowledgeable in the methods or tools of modeling and simulation. The process model library and web site are a step toward enabling the exchange of process simulation models and collaboration between shipyards on process modeling efforts.
