Abstract:

This report is the Phase I final report of the National Shipbuilding Research Program NSRP project Project Number 4-94-1 to evaluate world-class shipbuilders existing CADCAMCIM system implementations. Five U.S. shipyards participated in this study along with personnel from University of Michigan, Proteus Engineering, and Cybo Robots. Project participants have backgrounds in design, computer-aided design CAD, manufacturing processes, computer-aided manufacturing CAM, production planning, and computer-integrated manufacturingmanagement CIM. The results of this evaluation provided the basis for the CADCAMCIM Workshop presented in conjunction with the 1996 Ship Production Symposium, and will be used as background in Phase II of the project to develop requirements for future shipbuilding CADCAMCIM systems.
