Almost all of the previous ship framing computer programs which have been developed and utilized individually not only contained several weak points such as troublesome operation, difficult expression of output showing graphical images by a line printer, and insufficient functions for data processing, but also could not keep pace with the recent progress in the Numerical Control Machines such as steel marking, flame cutting and hydraulic bending equipment. To cope with these circumstances, by standardizing the design and the fabrication procedures and rationalizing graphical output by the dot-printer, X-Y plotter and COM, a newly integrated system called LODACS (Longitudinal Frame Developing And Conducting System), a system applicable to all shipbuilding facilities and equipment was developed. LODACS, a ship frame data processing system, is now contributing to the improvement of quality and accuracy of framing parts and to the saving of manpower in the design and the fabrication stages. This paper provides an outline of LODACS with actual examples of its outputs.
