For the control of production at a number of Italian Shipyards, Cantieri Navali Riuniti (C.N.R.) make use of a UNIVAC 1106 multi-processor computer at their Genoa head office linked with video- and tele-type terminals in the yards. This system is supported by: (a) an off-line KV 1645 draughting machine, with magnetic tape control unit, paper-tape reader and puncher at the Genoa office, (b) a KV 1216 draughting machine with paper-tape control unit at the Ancona shipyard, (c) a similar installation at the Muggiano shipyard, and (d) an Interactive Graphics System with KV 1216 draughting machine and three numerically-controlled flame cutting machines at Riva Trigoso. The paper describes the utilisation of the system for shipbuilding and engineering applications, e.g. nesting, part generation, coordination plans, arrangement studies, input check for structural analysis and naval architecture calculations.
