HULL PRODUCTION PLANNING

The purpose of this paper is to introduce the logic and principles of hull production planning as practised in the Japanese shipbuilding industry. The function of hull production in a shipyard is to construct a hull structure consisting of numerous steel pieces to achieve the following objectives: i> to maintain the ship's expected performance; ii> to maintain high accuracy; iii> to maintain the planned schedule; and iv> to maintain expected productivity. The concept of the whole hull production planning process is introduced by using examples of the planning system developed by IHI.
