PRESENT STATUS OF COMPUTER-AIDED SHIP DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION. IS THAT ALL THERE IS

The use of comptuers in the American shipbuilding industry may well be at the crossroads. Either the industry will adopt computerization as a large scale system or it will not. If it does not, it will achieve only the limited benefits which are presently in sight. Presently available programs and their applications are described. If it does, the prospect of a world-wide competitive advantage implicit in a superior technologically based industry appears achievable. Potential benefits from new data management systems, computer graphics, and functional integration are discussed.
