APPLYING GROUP TECHNOLOGY (GT) TO INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY IN A JOB- SHOP ENVIRONMENT

Lowering the high cost of small lot production in a job-shop environment is a continual problem for shipyard shops supporting extensive repair and overhaul work. In the past, reducing cost in this area has been a desirable but mostly unattainable goal.
