The British Ship Research Association computer program is called Britships and provides the British shipbuilding industry with an integrated design and production control system. It is modular in concept thus enabling various programs to be modified, or even changed completely when improvements are made without affecting the remainder of the system. It is most effective in allowing users to introduce the modules into their operations as they modernize and can make effective use of them. There are three major areas: (1) design, (2) production, and (3) planning and control and many modular subsystems creating great user flexibility.
