The paper describes the preparation of machine control tapes using a computer programme package, and the British Ship Research Association part-programming processor system. The system, the development of a modular basis and the modification of the general engineering 2CL to provide a shipbuilding version are described. N.C. (Numerical Control) machines in use in shipbuilding include automatic drafting machines, several varieties of N.C. flame-cutting machines and their associated computer programmes, and a N.C. frame bending machine.
