Abstract:

This paper describes how a formal manufacturing environment, as defined by the American Production Inventory Control Society APICS, compares to modern shipbuilding techniques. Formal manufacturing, through a product based build strategy, provides a framework for integrating contract scheduling, design development, material purchasing, inventory control, production capacity planning and production control. An understanding of formal manufacturing provides a foundation for understanding modern shipbuilding techniques.
