The paper reviews the development of outfitting techniques from technical and practical aspects. It defines the basic aims and the advantages that can be derived from new methods collectively referred to as "Advanced Outfitting". The depth of technical information required to support "Advanced Outfitting" is discussed together with the planning and drawing format. Certain shipyard facilities, especially craneage and transportation, impose constraints upon the attainable level of "Advanced Outfitting". These and other aspects of material flow affecting the pre-outfitting process are considered. Problems encountered during implementation of "Advanced Outfitting" are identified and discussed, particular attention being given to the effect of deviations from the master plan, e.g. changes in priority of projects, labour disputes, etc. The paper concludes with a summary of the limitations to advanced outfitting.
