SOME CONSIDERATIONS ABOUT VALVE ANALYSIS IN THE ASSEMBLY OF HULL PANEL UNITS
In this paper, the Authors examine the significance of the panel construction method and discuss the results of a comparative study of major assembly methods in terms of production man-hours and their influence on costs. An example is given of the construction of a module in the parallel midship section by both line welding and the so-called eggbox construction system. This demonstrates that the higher productivity of vertical fillet welding reduces the manufacturing man-hours per panel.
