A simulation model, representing the work of the crew of a nuclear ship for computer-programming purposes, is being developed by the ISF (the Institute for Ship-Operation Research, Flensburg) with the cooperation of the GKSS (the Hamburg organisation concerned with ship applications of nuclear power); it is an extension of the ISF simulation-model for conventional ships, and is intended to ensure the optimum use of the various "skill-elements" in the crew. For conventional ships, 128 skill-elements were identified; as a first step, 35 new skill-elements have been considered for nuclear ships (it is mentioned that experience in the Otto Hahn has shown that the greater part of the maintenance cost is expended on the conventional part of the power plant). The Authors (of the ISF) discuss the principles of such simulation models, and describe the work being done in the development of the new model for nuclear ships. Order from: BSRA as No. 48,900.
