MECHANIZATION OF WAREHOUSING AND TRANSPORT IN A SHIPYARD

The efficient operation of a shipyard is to some extent dependent on the supply of materials and the technical level of warehouse and transport management at the yard. The purpose of this article is to present certain principles upon which to base the organization of these functions. The principles are aimed at reducing the area occupied by racks, eliminating warehouse sections that are very small, simplifying freight handling, and greatly facilitating the work of auxiliary personnel and warehousemen. The author estimates that for a medium-sized ship repair yard in the USSR, introduction of the measures recommended for improving the organization of warehouse sections through the use of specialized equipment could mechanize the labor of 50 to 60 workers, free 4,000 to 5,000 cubic meters of production area, and save 400 to 500 thousand rubles.
