This Task has investigated the benefits derived from the projects sponsored during the past 11 years by SNAME Ship Production Committee Panel SP-9 on Education and Training under the National Shipbuilding Research Program. It has found that those projects involving direct shipyard application have yielded the most value in the shipyard community. The responses from those interviewed endorse the value of such projects, rather than analytical or theoretical exercises which offer little practical application. This Task has also assessed the opinion of the shipyard using community on the administration and management of Panel SP-9 itself. It has found that the practices currently in effect should be continued with only minor improvements. It has also found, however, that there has been an insufficient number of shipyards represented at and participating in Panel meetings. This deficiency has produced an academic bias in Panel deliberations, which has contributed to the minimal shipyard implementation of research results. Continuing efforts are needed to achieve and maintain an increase in shipyard participation.
