This paper focuses on the facilities used by various shipyards in carrying out selected phases of the shipbuilding process. Some differences in shipbuilding practices between yards are pointed out, and an attempt is made to evaluate the impact of the various construction methods on cost and time of shipbuilding. The environmental aspects of shipbuilding and ship repair and the improvements being made by the shipbuilding industry to cope with the environmental aspects in a rational manner are described. Thoughts are presented for dealing with the sluggish shipbuilding market of the early 80's. Several shipbuilding industry representatives are expected to make formal comments.
