The objective of this project is to present a video short course on basic ship production to the shipyard skilled trades. As such, it assumes a certain knowledge of the skills needed to produce a ship, but does not get deeply into the theory of ship production. It is not directed towards planning and production engineers, or management. The video is intended to give the various trade workers an idea of what modern shipbuilding is and how their skills are applied. It could also serve as a reference for outside vendors in applying their products in shipbuilding. An Instructor's Guide is included as a reference for a knowledgeable person presenting the video to a group of trade workers or trainees.
