CUTTING THE COST OF SHIPBUILDING

The Science and Engineering Research Council is funding work at Glasgow University to develop a method for accurately costing fabrication of offshore steel structures. Such a method, eliminating many of the inaccuracies of traditional methods, would enable an objective comparison of costs to be made between alternative platform designs. The work is based on two large databanks of standard times and work content data at Sunderland Shipbuilders & Govan Shipbuilders
