The author describes the requirements of production scheduling and control with particular emphasis on the production manager's need for relevant information. Capacity loading and medium-term planning are covered, and attention is directed to the proper balance between central production scheduling and ship-floor control. Shipbuilding and ship-repairing are compared and contrasted, and recent developments in information processing systems using computers are outlined. Concepts of work organisation are explored, including the work station concept and the differences in scheduling requirements which exist between various types and levels of production are emphasised.
