THE DEVELOPMENT AND USE OF THE ASTER NUMERICAL CONTROL SYSTEM
ASTER is a computerized system for the numerically controlled cutting of ship structure elements. It has been in practical use since 1968. ASTER is composed of four main parts: (1) description of the hull form and structure layout; (2) part generation and shell development; (3) plate nesting; and (4) information display. The processing is performed by a suite of seven programs linked by permanent and temporary data files.
