Abstract:

Ship Design for Production is widely accepted in principle. Its successful establishment depends on the, shipbuilder having a well-defined shipbuilding policy, available to the designer, the establishment of a realistic and agreed schedule and adequately trained personnel. Key production engineering techniques include spatial analysis, process analysis and standardization. The advent of powerful and inexpensive computer software has created new opportunities for producibility to be incorporated from the earliest stages of the design process. Significant progress has been made in recent years in the development of design methods, and in their application.
