GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS AND PRINCIPLES OF A SYSTEM FOR INTEGRATED AND AUTOMATED INFORMATION PROCESSING IN SHIP CONSTRUCTION

The system described in this article consists of a data bank and fourteen subsystems covering all stages of information processing, from hull geometry and topology, through various stages of fabrication, to assembly of blocks and sections on the berth, and fitting out. The relationships between the subsystems are shown in a diagram, and another diagram illustrates the division of the data into fields, and the exchange of information between the fields and the subsystems. The main advantages of such an integrated system are said to be: Appreciable reduction of labour content in the preparation of hull lines and loft work, increased efficiency of plate cutting and fabrication operations, better accuracy of hull details, better accuracy in hull assembly on the berth, and economy in hull materials. The system is described in general terms, and no details of application of the various computer programs, or practical examples, are presented. Order from BSRA as No, 49,025.
