During the hull-erection period (between keel-laying and launching) in East German shipyards, about 30% of the workers have no protection from the weather. Continuing their investigations on factors that influence final erection of the hull, the Authors, of the Mathias-Thesen shipyard at Wismar (on the Baltic), here examine the effects of climatic conditions on production quantity and quality. Methods adopted in other countries for providing partial or complete cover for the erection of the hull are outlined, and percentage increases in productivity thus obtained (as reported in the literature) are listed. In some final comments on approaches to the solution of this weather problem, it is mentioned that increased efficiency in the final erection of the hull is primarily a matter for research by the industry, in association with the universites, and the transition of the results into production.
