In East German shipyards, about 10,000 production workers (about 20% of the employees in the industry) are engaged in hull construction. Final erection takes from 45 to 53% of the total time required for building the hull, and involves much heavy physical work in the open air. Investigations by the industry have shown that there is a pressing need for the rationalisation of hull production, and have indicated the tasks that have to be undertaken. The Authors examine this production problem in so far as it relates to final erection of the hull, and describe a study which forms a starting point for the introduction of rationalisation measures. 40 factors of influence and their interrelationships were analysed (by computer), and 15 factors were selected as being the most important; these are listed in the article, their significance is discussed, and several conclusions are drawn.
