Abstract:

As part of the governmentindustry-supported National Shipbuilding Research Program NSRP, a technical evaluation of the operation of Avondale Shipyards, Incorporated ASI, was performed by consultants from Ishikawajima-Harima Heavy Industries Company, Limited IHI, in 1980. ASI subsequently implemented four major IHI systems recommended in that evaluation Accuracy Control Production Planning Design Engineering for Zone Outfitting Process Lanes The implementation of these systems has decreased production time and increased productivity, thus materially reducing costs. ASIS experience with these improvements was shared with the shipbuilding community via four seminars at the shipyard held from 1982 to 1984. The voluminous material which constituted the lecture notes of those seminars is condensed in this report. Essential material from all of the seminar lectures is included, but detailed discussions and examples of complex schedules and documents used at the shipyard have been left out. The complete work is included in the NSRP Microfiche Library See Reference 3.
