SHIPYARDS MEET COMPUTER INVASION HEAD ON
The use of the computer has become an important function in the shipyard. The vast mold lofts, so long a part of shipyard work, have been supplanted by numbers lodged in a computer's magnetic memory. This is a 1972 story of the software used to design and fair out ships' hulls, software that takes in all the processes between the original plans and the final cutting of plate for the hull itself. The names AUTOKON, FORAN, CASDOS, RADCO are names new to the shipbuilder's tongue. But he is learning to use them and the processes they represent to cut many hours out of lead shipbuilding time.
