Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to analyze the Japanese IHI concept of design engineering and its application in the actual working environment in IHI shipyards. As in the many other areas of study within the Technology Transfer Program TTP the objective of the study was to define possible beneficial and cost-saving elements or methodologies which could be instituted in Levingston and in other medium size shipyards in the United States. In this examination of the IHI design engineering concepts and applications, particular attention is given to the flow of work beginning with the Basic Design through the Functional Design to the Detail Design.
