Abstract:

The goal of the Planning and Production Control Research Task, like all other tasks under the National Shipbuilding Research Program, is to reduce the cost of building ships in U.S. Shipyards. But unlike other projects which are mainly concerned with improving physical production processes like welding, materials handling, and surface coating where results are readily observable, Planning and Production Control is directed toward the less tangible factors of time, schedules, standards and budgets where results are equally significant though not directly visible.
