The ship-hull classification and coding system devised at Glasgow University is described. This system allows a statistical analysis of ship steelwork components to be carried out as an aid to manufacture and assembly. The results of the statistical analysis have been summarised into a set of data tables which allow a comparison to be made between, in this case, two different ship hulls. Such tables can be used, for example, to provide a comparative measure of the difference in work content required to produce the different hulls, the variations in the shipbuilding facilities needed, and the individual loading which may occur on these facilities to produce a vessel may also be quantitatively compared. The data are of use not only to prospective builders of ships of similar design and size to those already coded, and for time and cost figures for tendering and planning purposes, but would also be of value to machine tool and equipment manufacturers.
