Several instances are described in which repairs to ship machinery caused long and expensive delays because the designer had incorporated specialized features that prevented ships personnel or general repair yards from making the repairs. General criteria for avoiding these problems, which designers of machinery and equipment for marine use might with advantage keep in mind, are given. Other suggestions mentioned are-standardization of parts, materials and manufacturing methods, pooling of servicing agencies and depots, and simplification of import licenses.
