Abstract:

The objective of this project was to develop a detailed implementation guide documenting an approach to integrated Shop Floor Control SFC for shipyards. While the basic elements of SFC exist in all shipyards, however, most have not effectively integrated all these elements into a well structured production monitoring and control system. Since the shipbuilding job shop environment revolves around the assembly of a single product, it is difficult to bring in off the shelf production control software which will speak to shipbuildings unique needs. This project report provides the guidelines for identifying the information requirements necessary to monitor and control production activity in a shipyard. The report documents a structured approach, provides a case study example utilizing that approach, and includes final conclusions of the project.
