INTRODUCTION TO QUALITY CONTROL IN SHIP CONSTRUCTION
The increase in the use of highly sophisticated equipment, the introduction and pronounced development of new techniques in ship construction, and the consequent rise in production rates together with the enormous growth in size of ships, have brought about a need for more effective planning in the areas of both production and quality. This paper illustrates how a well-organised quality control system incorporating significant revisions of traditional inspection procedures can be employed as an effective means of ensuring product quality and at the same time be an aid to production.
