Abstract:

It is customary for a shipyard to subcontract with one or more design agents for at least some portion of the detail design of a ship to be constructed by the shipyard. Past experience with this process has demonstrated that it has the potential to be the source of inefficiencies, wasted efforts and deteriorated relations between the shipyard and design agent. The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers SNAME Ship Production Committee Panel, SP-41, DesignProduction integration, sponsored a project to improve this process. This effort developed a list of the information which should flow from a shipyard to a design agent in order for the design agent to generate the calculations, drawings and other deliverables in a timely fashion and useable format to support the construction effort. This paper describes the methodology used to develop the required information and reviews the details of the list.
