THE OUTFIT PLANNING PROGRAM

Shipbuilding as currently practiced in the U.S. commercial shipyards employs very little quantitative modeling or analysis in production planning. This paper presents a brief discussion of the shipbuilding process and focuses on one major component which is referred to as outfitting. The outfit planning problem is described in detail and then formally modeled as a generalization of the resource constrained project scheduling problem. The value of the approach as well as barriers to its adoption are also discussed.
